A letter to my 10 year old self

Hi Alan, I’m writing to you from your future it’s the year 2013 (you are now 44 – Yup, you make it that far at least).

Sorry Pal, I’m not going to tell you what happens between then and now, because what happens to you, make you the man you are today. And I like who I am

All I will say is -life is going to be hard for awhile and you are going to get hurt, both physically and emotionally. But you know about pain anyway (The finger still hurts in cold weather by the way and the shoulder occasional freezes).

However, there are also good times, you will see the world and oh yes – look out for your 22nd birthday. All I am going to say is – what a night!

So anyway, what sort of man are you today? Just a normal bloke, with a handful of good friends, who is well liked, can live with the things he has seen and done, and has found peace.

Before I forget, you will find out that your dyslexic in a couple of year’s time, so don’t worry about the spelling etc. In fact by the time your 44 you will have self published 7 books.

That’s it pal, stay strong and see you on the far side.
