I'm back into the #Trust30 Challenge. Behind but back into action.
The eighth challenge in the #Trust30 Challenge is inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson's quote - 'There will be an agreement in whatever variety of actions, so they be each honest and natural in their hour'.
Corbett Barr poses the challenge - what would you say to the person you were five years ago? What will you say to the person you'll be in five years?
Five years ago in 2006 I was 20 years old.
You will finish TAFE happily but savour your time there as you'll miss it even five years later. You'll miss the people even more. They are amazing people who definitely are going to do wonders in the world.
The boyfriend you have now is not the wonderful person you think he is. You need to open your eyes and stop fighting for a relationship that isn't working and a boy who doesn't want to be fought for by you. He is a perfectionist and you aren't perfect. Remember he isn't either.
You will become yourself again after you break up and realise how much you weren't for two years. Enjoy this time.
You will study again, you will meet your soul mate, you will do stupid things, you will meet amazing people, and you will have a child, a boy. You will be happy and have wonderful relationships with your family.
Don't rush. Savour every moment.

Dear 30 year old Ames,
I hope you are well, happy and have a wonderful life. I hope you and your wonderful man are still together and munchkin is healthy.
Seven years old. Munchkin will be in school. I hope you and the mister have chosen a good school for him, a school you trusted with your instinct. I hope he is healthy, happy and talking a lot. When he was two, five years ago, he wasn't quite talking but loved bubbles, cars, movies, animals, balls, cuddles, kisses, olives, grapes, apples, vegemite sandwiches and rice. He is stubborn just like his mother. Remember he is a child, be kind and loving.
You and the mister will be together for over eight years. I hope you both have a lot of date nights now that munchkin is older. I hope the mister has been in the airforce for at least four years. I hope he is loving it and you are standing beside him through every journey.
I sit here wondering if you made the decision to have more children. I know whatever decision you and the mister would have made together would be the right one. Remember there are two of you in this relationship, three including munchkin, take into account everyone's emotions and thoughts.
I hope you are happy and your anxiety is under control. If not don't worry you will overcome it, if not before, not now then in the future.
