Hey, 20’s Me. It’s me! 30‘s Me! I know you probably don’t recognize me. That’s ok. I’m rockin’ a mom bod now, and honestly can’t remember the last time I went somewhere to get my hair done that didn’t say “$5 haircuts” on the door.
But, I’m just dropping by to talk to you for a sec. That’s right. We’re still really into abrevs.
I know you’re lost. I get it. You’re looking for acceptance from everyone else. Your confidence is lower than ever, and you feel unworthy. Transitioning into a “real adult” is nothing what you thought it would be, and depression has slowly overcome you. I know you’d never admit it, but that’s what it is. Depression.
Fitting in, staying in shape, wearing the right clothing. These all seem really important right now. But you’re just chasing an unattainable standard that is running you into the ground.
Well, guess what? Everything will work out, and I know you’re scared it won’t. We hung onto the right people, and found some new ones along the way. They helped shape us for the better. The MUCH better.
We still love to belt out 90s pop, and yeah, skinny jeans are still a thing. But, here’s something to look forward to, leggings make a comeback! And I’m pretty sure they’re here to stay… well, for us anyways.
But here’s the deal. We eventually settle into mom life, and we’ve got this incredible husband, and adorable little home, that we pretend to decorate like we’re Joanna Gaines(someday that will mean something to you.) And we’re happy. Really, really happy. And we found this happiness through accepting and loving ourself.
So, go ahead. Hang out late tonight, and sleep in tomorrow, because these years are fleeting. But, just know, you’re going to be just fine.
OH! And Full House is back! HAVE MERCY! Ok, I think that’s everything.
