10 Years Ago


10 years ago, 19 years old.

This girl.

She was so young, so full of love and possibility and excitement.

She was carefree and a little wild, heady with her first dose of freedom.

She was determined, flying past barriers and dreaming of a grand future.

She was in love and learning how to be a wife, making mistakes and love.

She was rarely afraid, exhilarated at the thought of seeing the world.

She was consumed with life and living every moment presently and completely.

This girl.

She may have aged,
gained some weight and a child,
lost a husband and some innocence,
and grown wiser and wearier, but…

She’s still in there.

And I’m going to find her.

This post is a response to the weekly Writer’s Workshop over at Mama’s Losin’ It!. Learn more about the ‘pretty much famous’ weekly prompts here. This week I chose: ‘Find a photo of yourself taken 10 years ago. How have you changed since the day that photo was taken?


You will find her. I have faith in that! You never truly lost her. Thinking of you!


I love you so much sis! She IS still in there and i Know you will find her!!!


Thank you Sarah! I believe she is in there too. It’s so easy to let ourselves get lost in the tides of life. I wish for a bit of that youthfulness for us all! :)


I love you too! Your creativity and determination inspire me! :)

Oh that last line just jabbed me in the heart. She’s in there and you will find her. Very beautifully written.


Thank you Kat! <3
