Future-Me would like to tell Current-Me not to worry so much.

I wish Future-Me had told Then-Me not to marry that boy just because I was worried I'd end up alone.

I wish Future-Me had told Then-Me to go ahead and go to the community college, even if it wasn't as prestigious as the Ivy League schools my guidance counselor had told me I could get into. Dad wouldn't pay for Ivy League, but he would have paid for community college. I cut off my damn nose to spite my face, right there.

I wish Future-Me had told Then-Me to start The Runt on the heart meds.

I wish Future-Me had told Teenage-Me to be nicer to my parents. Jeezus Christ, I was Kid #6. I could've cut them a break.

I wish Future-Me would tell Current-Me to stop beating myself up over being snotty to my parents as a teenager. We all did it.

I wish Future-Me would tell all the Me-s that it will all work out, one way or another. It always does.

What do you wish your Future-Me would tell you?

Wow, you sound sad tonight. You know that you have a lot of company on all those counts you listed, right?....Ginny

Nah, I wasn't sad, Ginny - just feeling my age. :) Hindsight's always twenty-twenty.
