Dear Future Me,
How are you doing?
I’m sure you have everything under control, as always, your goals pointing you toward the stars and beyond. I’m certain that every step you’re taking in one step in the right direction, for better or for worse, and you will be astonished one day at how far you’ve come.
But it doesn’t always feel that way, does it? Somedays you beat up yourself endlessly on the little decisions you’ve made during the day, and it’s really hard to see those stars you’re striving for. So, this is why I’m writing to you, because you need to hear what I’m about to say.
You are an amazing human being. No ifs, ands, or buts.
Let me tell you why.
You are amazing because you get out of bed every single day and try your hardest to get through everything that life throws at you. Somedays you leap out of bed and knock everybody’s socks off with what you accomplish. Other days, you roll over and fall back asleep before getting up and just managing to scrape by. What matters, though, is that you got up in the first place.
So, next time the going gets a bit rough, remember that today you tried. Yesterday or last week you might have gone on a date and gotten really high grades, but today you got through a day of work. Both of those are worthy of celebration, and you should be proud of yourself.
I charge you with going out into the world every day and simply trying your best. You are a talented, smart, caring, and beautiful person inside out; and the world deserves to see you out there. And if you don’t feel that way right now, take care of yourself, and pick yourself up to face the world again.
I believe in you, and that you will fulfill all your goals and then some.
Love you always,
