reverb 10 Prompt: Future Self

Prompt: Future self. Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?)

My advice for my younger self and my future self is the same.

Darling,

You need to know that you are doing a lot of things right, and in the end the things you do wrong will not be things you will want to have avoided, so there is no use in telling you what not to do. I can only tell you what to keep on doing.

Keep drinking a lot of water. Keep doing yoga. Keep putting on sunscreen every day. Stick with meditation. Keep calling your parents on Sunday. Keep eating things that make you feel good. Keep talking to God – She doesn’t care which name you are using right now. Keep getting rid of things that clutter up your space and your mind. Keep being polite to everyone – you never know how that will pay off. Take care of your body – checkups and dental visits are not optional. Keep trying to live lighter on the earth.

The rest, well, the rest will take care of itself as long as you live heart-first.

Love,

Me
