It’s Almost Time – From Older Me to Younger Me

Dear 39-Year-Old Tammy,

Nothing will change.

You will wake up tomorrow. A day older. On the right side of the bed. And nothing will change.

With time, your body might. Same with your skin and hair. But not overnight.
Body changes take time. More than eight hours. Attitude changes can take a lifetime. Nothing will change overnight. Because each day, you choose to plant your feet on the floor with either a smile on your face or be miserable.

Being miserable takes effort. Smiling. Choosing to be happy? How hard is that? It’s not. You’ve accomplished more than you realize. Be proud of that.


And stop wearing that coral lipstick! It looks as though you have pasta sauce on your lips.

Almost 40-Year-Old Tammy
