Hello from the future's siiide!

Dear Future Me,

This is your past self writing in Febuary of 2017- and what a crazy ride 2016 was. The crazy killer clown craze, people getting into car crashes from Pokemon Go, and even a few personal moments that I really don't care to elaborate on a website that probably stores emails somewhere in their servers. I'll leave that stuff for my paper diary. (If I can will myself to go write it) And let's not forget the Adele "Hello" trend... which I decided to use for my title. Sorry not sorry. >:D

So you decided to start all sorts of interesting things in 2016. You're trying to excercise regularly, you started your own blog, you're jumping into leadership roles- and I'm proud of you. So stinking proud. You're no longer a wilting flower in front of people and as you're public speaking. It took time and experience as well as bravery to speak before you had the time to think about what a bad idea it was. You even had to do it while you felt like your heart was going to pound out of your chest. But you did it. And you're doing it with grace and poise.

You're not surviving anymore- you're thriving.

You're not dependent on what other people think of you anymore. Ultimately you and God are the only ones who will matter when all things that don't matter will crumble and decay away- and you're starting to realize this more and more the older you're getting.

You're letting God's word define you, and the Bible has nothing but good things to say about you.

You still have issues. You're not perfect. You have a long way to go, but you've come a long ways- so pat yourself on the back for a second and realize how far you've gotten in just the short time you've had. And this is just the beginning of 2017 at this present time. By the time this little word salad has been delivered to your inbox, it's been another whole year with new experiences and memories added to your physical and mental diary.

So dance a little and look up Run Devil Run by David Crowder Band, which is your favorite song at the moment. And then compare this song with your new favorite song. Then finally understand that nothing will top this song no matter how much time has passed. Then wonder why you're doing this to your future yourself, and laugh like the little giggle box you are. Your past self might be currently slightly bored at the moment, but that's okay- you'll laugh at your own stupidity anyway. Because that's who you are... an awkward, extraverted weirdo. :D

And to anyone else who might be reading this... yes, I am this weird in real life. Now you know what the inside of my head looks like. It gets really dark and strange in here sometimes. xD

But keep growing, and keep being amazing in your own fantasticly starge ways. Your real friends will love you for who you are. <3
