A Note To My Future Self

This is my first Five Minute Friday link up since 2014! I cannot believe that it has been so long! AAAAAHHH I feel blessed to rejoin this group of writers. This week I’m going write a note to my future self.

You can join in too. The rules are pretty simple – write for 5 minutes on the word prompt for the week and post to your blog, then add your post to the linky party over at the Five Minute Friday community.


Hey Future Self, it’s me, your younger, less hot self! I’m sending you lots of love.

I know that the decisions I make today are leading me towards you and while sometimes I cannot see things clearly, my track record thus far has been pretty great. Whatever it is, whatever it looks like, no matter how bad it gets, YOU GOT THIS.

Every day that I wake up, I try to be mindful that you, the future me, depends on who I decide to be today, in this moment. And the woman I am today, decides to make the most of her time here, with what she has, right where she is, exactly as she it. Because that is always enough.

I hope I make you proud.


After I wrote this post I did a quick Google search and found this amazing website that makes it super easy to write a note to your future self. Feel free to check it out here.

    Welcome back to FMF! Sometimes it can be easy to minimize the future importance of decisions I make each day, even so called small ones. Thanks for the reminder that I am shaping my future self by the decisions I make now. Have a lovely weekend.

    I’ve written letters to my past selves but never future me. I will have to check out that site and do this myself.

      I think so too. I wrote a letter 2 years ago to be opened in 2020 God willing. I think it is a truly hopeful exercise.

    Writing to your future self sounds like a good idea. I’ll have to check out that website. It is important to remember that our future self depends on the choices we make today, so each day matters. Glad you joined in with FMF again! Visiting from #25.
