Dear Future Me,
Hey dude! This is coming from your
20-year-old-self. I just wanted to write this letter to you. It's said
that writing a letter to our future self is an intimate act of
self-love. And of course, I love us.

know you are so damn succesful. I see you smile with gratitude for all
of the lessons I am in the middle of. The gut wrenching, painful moments

condescending words; you are proud to have them be a part of your past.
You made it through and hold nothing but positive loving thoughts for

follow my heart. I am going to become the person you know I can be.
Future self, you are my guide and you show me what is possible for our
life. You show me that no matter what life throws at us, we are
stronger, smarter, healthier and more beautiful than ever, not because
we rise above it, though we do, but because we have the courage to keep
Future self, you rock, and I am so unbelievably proud I get to become you.
Your younger, not-so-together, sad and overweight, yet doing the best he can, and hopeful self …
