I apologize for being late with December’s Letters from Linda. It’s been a heck of month and today is only the 10th. Whew! I hope after today, I can settle into the holiday season, relax, and enjoy, what is for me, the most stressful time of the year. Fingers crossed–this year will be different. I’m certainly working at making the life I want–limited stress and no drama. And full of love.
Yes, someone did win the Kindle–their name will be in the newsletter. And I hope I hear from the winner so I can get in the mail and that person will have it for all the after Christmas book sales!
If you’re a newsletter subscriber and you’re seeing this picture, you’ll know what to do to enter the January giveaway as soon as my December newsletter hits your email…which should be later this evening.
Wishing all a jolly holly holiday. May your days be bright and your nights merry.
Blessings to all,
Susan Jackson says
Love the picture of your puppy with the Christmas book—he doesn’t look like that anymore!!

When does your newsletter come out. I know I signed up for it but I don’t remember seeing anything.
When does your newsletter come out? I know I signed up awhile back for pretty much everything but I haven’t seen any newsletters yet, unless they are spamming them which wouldn’t surprise me. Please let me know. Thanks much.

What I would tell my younger, 18 year old, self is to retake that entry exam for the U.S. Marine Corps and pass it. It’s the biggest regret I have in my life. I missed the passing score by 1/2 a point and never went back to take it again.
Shirley Cochran says

Kay Garrett says
The advice I would give my younger self would be to think of yourself as #1. I don’t mean that as ‘I’ am all important or up on a pedestal, but rather don’t let fashion, peers or circumstances to dictate who you are. I think I would go by the motto – Be yourself – an original is more valuable than a copy. It took years for me to recognize that yes I’m not perfect, I’ll never fit in a size 2 and that I am intelligent and purposeful just the way I am. I don’t have to change to fit in or be someone else’s standards. Life would have been so much simpler if I had learned that a a much younger age.
Jodi Wresh says
I would tell my 40 year old self to fight for your rights and stand up for yourself and not take any guff from anyone. Circumstances would be a lot better for me now if I did.
Margaret McGovern says
To my 16yo self I’d say don’t rush growing up & life passes by much to quickly. Also, to love and enjoy the time you have with friends and family. At 61 I miss those that have passed and didn’t get to spend the time I should have with them.
My advice to my 12 year old self would be ” do not start smoking” it’s a hard habit to break and not good for your health. Will cause a spontaneous lung collapse when your 32.

Susan P says
Advice to my 13 year old self and probably all 13 year old girls out there! Boys aren’t that important – have fun and enjoy life first. Boys can wait until you are out of high school.
