Talking to my future self on my blog was never something I saw myself doing. And to be honest its quite out of the ordinary for me to think forward. I’m more of a let’s look at how far we have come than let’s see how far we still have to go. As I get older I’m constantly recognising things about myself I want to change and evolve.
I think it’s good to always be changing, as long as its for the better. People often get so offended when others say “You’ve changed”, but not me. I take that as a compliment. Why would I want to be the same person they knew 5 years ago? I think it’s such a privilege in life to be evolving into a better person, I don’t know about you but I don’t want to remain the same.
This seemed liked a really good exercise to do and I hope in years to come I can read it and see what I thought my life would be like. I recently wrote a letter to my anxiety and it was such a good exercise and helped my mental health alot. So why not keep it going!
DEAR FUTURE SELF,
I hope you’re well, I hope you’re safe, happy and content in whatever circumstance you’re in right now. I wonder if you’ll still be single or if you’ll finally find the man of your dreams? We can only hope, lets pray for that together now.
As I’m sat writing this, 25 years old. I’m wondering what life you’ll be leading and what job you’ll have. I don’t care how much money we’ll be making, what I care is that you’re happy from the inside out. That you’re in the place you want to be and that you finally beat anxiety. I really hope we beat anxiety and show it who’s boss. It’s about time.
I wonder what the circumstances around us will be? Will there still be poverty in the world? Will there still be racism and sexism. I really hope that those things change for the better. I’m hoping you have kids by now. I just know they’ll be as crazy as you are and hopefully not as sassy. If you do have kids, I hope you’re raising them like your parents raised you. I’m Praying they are well rounded individuals who know right from wrong.
Are my family safe and well? I really hope they are. Have any of my siblings given me any more nieces or nephews? I hope we haven’t lost anyone, not yet anyway. I pray that everyone you surround yourself with is full of good health and happiness.
NOW ONTO THE IMPORTANT STUFF,
what clothes are you wearing? I wonder what new makeup and clothing trends have happened. Who is the president of the US? Is Tiger King still in jail? These are the questions I need answering. I know for a fact that you dyed your hair blonde again. We need to stop doing this. You need to decide if you want to be blonde or brunette. This in-between thing isn’t working for us. I wonder how many followers our blog has now, I wonder if we are even still blogging? I’m hoping we are!
As I have already said before future self, I just hope you’re happy. You’ve spent so much time being unhappy in many aspects of your life, I hope now you can finally be content in whatever it is you’re doing. You deserve happiness.
What would you say to yourself in the future?
What things would you want to know?
This was such a fun and interesting thing to do! Its crazy to think that I’ll have the answers to these questions in so many years. It makes you wonder how your life will turn out.
