Dear 16 year old Donna.
I’m going to make this short because from how I remember it, you were not that patient back then.
I want to start this off by telling you to breathe.
I know this year did not exactly start very well for you and you had to say goodbye to grandpa Egill who had, and still has, a substantial influence on how you turned out as a person.
It’s extremely painful to say goodbye to a person that you look so much up to and love.
I won’t sugar coat it, this year will be one of the most difficult years of your life.
Today you are 26 years old, and in these 10 years that have lapsed you have accomplished so much!
Your long awaited dream of acting in a movie became a reality and not only that but you were also one of the lead roles of the movie and it was world premiered in South- Korea.
It took some time but you will finish school and you will get that graduation cap.
In these 10 years you won’t only achieve all of this but you will also get to know love, how to be in love and love with all of your being, but most importantly you will learn to love yourself.
But of course some things haven’t changed – like the fact that you still hate doing laundry and how much you love ice cream, despite the fact that you are lactose intolerant.
If there is something that I want you to take from this is to enjoy and have faith.
Faith that you can do anything, faith that it will get better.
