Walk boldly into the future little one...

 I love these types of writing prompts -- this one, to write a letter to my 5-year-old self stirred a lot of emotions in me: 

If I could go back in time and talk to my 5-year-old self, I would have so much to tell her.

Walk boldly into the future little one.  I know that this world is a scary place sometimes, but it won't always be that way.

You will grow up to be a beautiful, loving, strong woman.  You will have a life free of fear, in that beautiful house in the woods that you see in those beautiful House & Garden magazines that you love so much.

Your future is bright.

Those scenes you love so much, when you stand out in nature and listen to the trees, they will become a regular part of your life.

The peace that you crave will be yours.  The fights, the screaming, the tears, the fear, it will all be gone someday.

Walk boldly into the future little one, and don't look back, you're not going in that direction❤️
