Dear future self.
The other day I wrote a letter to my future self, I wanted to share with you what I wrote.
Dear future you,
It's September 2020, the Coronavirus lockdown has been lifted. You have been able to reconnect with your loved ones, tell them how much you love them, kiss and hold them tight. Seeing them again was like seeing them for the first time, you noticed their beauty and their little quirks that were always there but never seen. You're closer to them than ever before.
Your relationship is stronger than ever, you love more deeply now than you ever have. You appreciate each little moment, every embrace, every kiss, every touch. You revel in the pure joy of the simplest of things together and no act is taken for granted. You're now saving and planning for the future, ready to move in together next year. Following your dreams and growing a loving life together.
And to you. I am SO proud of you. You have grown and flourished in ways your old self could not have imagined. Your focus is crystal clear, your intentions are set and you are more in tune with the Universe now more than ever. You are strong, you are brave, you are fierce. You are building an amazing life for yourself and your future family. I am proud of the way that you handled yourself in times of crisis and sadness, you chose joy. You chose to practice gratitude, you chose to fill your life with positive affirmations and flipped your mindset to deal with your emotions. You were supportive and compassionate to others, putting their needs and emotional support above your own at times. You are a wise and wonderful soul. You are a great daughter, girlfriend, sister and best friend. You are loved. There were times when bearing the weight of the world on your shoulders became a little too much and you needed a moment alone to shed your tears, but you bounced back with integrity and passion, as you always do.
You are everything you were ever meant to be and more because you told yourself "I refuse to come out of this situation unchanged" and change you have.
Now look back on your past self and tell her how proud of her you are, how she's doing amazingly and how she will get through this. Lest we forget this season in our lives, let it remind us of the gift of life, of love, of health and of friendship.
I love you, and I believe in you.
I found this exercise to be of great comfort and I encourage you to do the same and if you do please share them with me, I'd love to read them!
All my at this time, stay safe,
