What I Know Now

My friend Cricket gave me this little book for my birthday and I knew I would love it before I even read it. The basis of this book is what would you write to yourself if you could send a letter to yourself when you were younger.
The book is filled with letters that women have written to their younger self... and there are some surprising letters. The women in the book range in age of mid thirties to seventies. They are athletes, politicians, business women, actresses, authors, photographers and singers.
I am not all the way through the book, but it is very thought provoking. Ever since I started the book, I have been thinking about what I would write to myself at a younger age.
For one thing, I would tell myself to do more kegels ;)..... and another would be not to freak out about the kids having tidy bedrooms. I think I will write myself a letter.... for fun..

What would you write to yourself?

I definitely know what you mean about the Kegals. We'll have to chat. I've often thought I wish I could have known what I know now back in my late teens/early twenties. I think I'm going to check this book out...sounds very interesting.
