Letter to my 16 Year old self

Dear Joanna

I'm your 22 year old self , a lot of things are going to happen over the next 5 years or so you may not think that you will be able to cope but you will. 

First of all I'd like to say that your first year of college will be Ok you may struggle a bit as most of the girls in your class are louder and more confident than you. But when you do your level 2 qualification you will be in a different class of girls and make a friend that will change your life. 

Let me explain..
The girl who you will become friends with will one day be your sister in law. You will date and fall in love with one of older brothers .You will move out of your parents home in December 2008 and get engaged pretty quick but its the best thing you will ever do. You will also find that your parents will split up as your mum will want a divorce and seeing someone else. 

2009 will be your best year and worst year all at once on new years eve Stuart will ask you to be his wife but then he will become redundant and that will trigger a year of good and bad things to happen to you. In April your dad will get very poorly and will have to go into hospital make sure that you tell him that you love him as on 25th April he will pass away at home. 

2011 you will sadly say goodbye to your Grandad who was fighting cancer but stay strong. In November you will start planning for your wedding which will happen on 4th February 2012 , enjoy it. You will look lovely in your wedding dress and have a fab day snow included.

Just keep positive things will work out in the end.

Love a wiser more older you
