A letter to my 18yo self

If you were to write a letter you your younger self, which age would you choose? Would you give “spoilers”?

I was 21 here … and my hair went all the way down my back.

I took up author Jenn J McLeod’s challenge to write to the younger Monique, and chose age 18, because I’d left school and I was about to start university. It is funny when you look back and realise the dreams you had then are often far from reality…and sometimes they are not – they just come true in a different way.

Read my letter at the wonderful Jenn J McLeod’s blog here.

And if you like, come back and tell me what you think. What’s the one thing you’d say to your younger self?
