So I have often thought about that whole concept of writing a letter to your younger self, in hopes of warning them about what lay ahead and what not to stress about.
It always seemed a little silly to me, a pointless exercise - for what is done, is done and no amount of wishing it away shall change it so.
I guess the concept stems from some sort of regret that bubbles away underneath us all. How sad this seems to me.
It is that whole ‘youth is wasted on the young’ thing that comes to mind too, I used to be so offended by this phrase when I was younger.
It is only now I see the wisdom in these words.
Well my beautiful Maggie, I have decided instead to make it more worthwhile by writing this letter instead to you.
