Welcome back to Day 8 of Blog Everyday in May! Today’s prompt is to write a letter to my future self. It’s supposed to be 20 years from now but even thinking ahead to this summer is too much for me so I’m going to write a letter to myself 10 years into the future.
This prompt was incredibly challenging but I’m really glad I had a chance to think it through. Let’s just say there’s a lot of scratched out sentences in my notebook… When I first was thinking about this prompt, the song “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack popped into my head as a starting point, so I kind of based this letter a bit off of that. So, without further ado…
Dear Future Alex,
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder at the beauty of the world. I hope you get to see the world, check places off your bucket list and have so many amazing experiences.
I hope you haven’t been afraid to take a leap, personally or professionally.
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean (this one’s a quote, yes, but I couldn’t think of a better way to phrase it).
I hope you’ve found your passion and are doing what makes you happy.
I hope you haven’t taken for granted what you have.
I hope you still have fulfilling hobbies, like writing or photography, and I hope you make more time to give back to the community.
Finally, I hope you’re [still] fabulous, happy, confident, and living the life of your dreams.
Alex in the Present Time
