Dear Nicola

If I had the chance to go back to my childhood and write to my adult self what would I write?

Dear Nicola,
You will have many mountains to climb. Each being harder than the last but from each you carry a piece of treasure, a treasure of strength.
You will have a blessed life but you won't see this. See with clarity what you have to be grateful for. Not only the air you breath but the life you produce. Wonderful children that bring their own blessings to your life. Be present. Be playful while you can, leave the chores and play, you don't know what is in store for you. When you leave things until later, later may not come.
You have a husband who cherishes you, except it, enjoy it and give back. Be thankful.
If you take things for granted and you let it go, it may come back but not without heartbreak. Know the things to hold on to.
People that are special may slip away, let them know what they mean to you. Life is fleeting.
You have a wonderful opportunity to nurture other souls. As you give them the gift of kindness you are taking so much more back, you will hold these dear people in your heart forever.
While you can live your passions, dance freely and enjoy riding. Your ability is precious.
Your body is your temple, take care of it. nourish it with good food and hydrate it with fresh water, the simple gifts for the job your body does for you. Know that your ability will be short don't waste time, time is something you can't get back.
you will want it all to end but know that you need to start living, you never really begun. You need to be thankful and grateful for the gifts you have received. see the good. Be present and life to the fullest.

Love from your deserving self.
