Full Disclosure: I wrote this post several months ago, however was too afraid to hit the “publish” button. I’m now at a point where I’m at peace with my past as well as my future. But I’m also still healing, so felt it would be a step in the right direction to go ahead and put this out there. Maybe I’ll wind up taking it back down, or hiding it deep within my site somewhere. We’ll see what the future holds …
An Imaginary Letter From My Future Self
You read a lot of articles where experts are asked to write letters to their younger selves. Like, if they could go back 10 or 15 years, what advice or wisdom they’d offer.
Whether they would’ve gone to that private college, or saved money by going local. If that first new car was actually worth it, or if they could’ve survived and thrived with a used one. And, for God’s sake, to make sure they started planning for retirement right out of the gate!
And I guess that’s what this article is about. Except from a point in time that hasn’t yet occurred. I don’t yet have that wisdom. I haven’t learned the lessons to pass on to my former self.
If it were at all possible to fast forward to the future — If it already happened to be a few months or years from now — There are a few things I’d like to hear from my future self right now.
