If I Knew Then…

Posted in Jenn, Belarus tagged at 6:18 am by Jenn

If I could go back 10 years and give myself advice here’s what I’d say:

1.  You are too nice.  Don’t let people walk all over you.

2.  Don’t try to make Mr. Wrong, Mr. Right.

3.  You are not too old for medical school.

10 years ago I had just broken off my engagement to a man who I thought I’d spend the rest of my life with.   My father really didn’t like him which should have been my first clue.  When we split up I became terribly depressed and made some really bad choices in the men that I dated and the friends I chose.  If I could go back and follow my own advice?  Well, today I probably wouldn’t be sitting here writing this or would I?  I’m a firm believer in “all things happen for a reason”.  Besides, I wouldn’t want to go back and do it all again, I barely made it out the first time.  – Jenn, 38, Belarus

    I would tell you to pay attention to that good looking Navy guy across the bar. He might be the “ONE”…… He might just be your sunshine!!
