Matthew

Dear Past Matt,

If, by some miracle, this note were to make it back through the fabric of time into your miniaturized hands, I suppose there’s one thing I’m able to tell you (without upsetting the balance of time and space). 

It’s going to be OK.

You will have your heart broken, but it will be OK.
You will have friends come and go, but it will be OK.
You will have some big financial struggles, but it will be OK.
You will question your self-worth, but it will be OK.
You will have to work to find what makes you happy, but it will be OK.
You will laugh and cry and rant and rave, and it will be OK.
You will be terrible at math, but it will be OK…I’m still terrible at math.

Through everything you encounter, things will always have a way of working themselves out to be exactly the way they should. You don’t have to change who you are, or who you want to be. When the time comes, just continue being the smiling, hopeful kid you are in this picture. 

Sincerely,

Future Matt
