Oh YOU!

I’m participating in a Reverb Broads project that prompts writing through the month of December.  Today’s prompt: December 1: Reverb Broads Prompt: “If the you of today could go back in time and give advice to any of the previous yous, which age would you visit and what would you tell them?” via Kristen at kristendomblogs.com

Dear 7-Year-Old Madge,

Stop following all the rules.  They were made to be broken and you won’t even be held accountable for your actions for another few years.  Be late!  Talk loudly in the library. Say NO once in a while.  Your strive for perfection will make you more sad than it will make anyone else happier.  When you wake up and go to school tomorrow find Corey M. and tell him he’s full of crap.  You can even kick him in the shins a few times if you are so inclined.  It will solve a multitude of problems.

XOXO
40-year-old Madge

  1. Love this post! Favorite line… “Your strive for perfection will make you more sad than it will make anyone else happier.” I need that on a poster somewhere.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Hey, dude. There is NEVER a good reason to talk loudly in the library. I think you should have encouraged your 7-year-old self to buy more zucchini and cucumbers so you could get desensitized at an early age.
