Dear 16-year-old Me

Have you seen this video? It's about melanoma and it's very well done.

I was thinking about this video last night, actually, and what I would tell my 16-year-old-self if I had the opportunity. 

I started making a list... and then I thought... gosh, if I changed even one small detail I might not have met Lenny. I might not have Angie. I wouldn't dare change anything that might lead to me not having both of them in my life. Sure, I might have avoided some troubling times, but they all helped make me who I am today.

And I like who I am. 

So how about if I go back to last-week me and give myself the Powerball numbers for this week instead? :)


  1. It is such a strange notion, but I agree with you. Everything that happened in your life led you to this place where you are with your family and children...

  2. PS - yes, excellent and incredibly powerful video.

  3. so true. while I would love to change particular parts I wouldn't have any part of this life, where its at right now. and it's a blessed one.
