Reverb10: Future Self

I took some time off from the internet this week to hang out with my family. And by family I mean the Mister because I’m always hanging out with the girls but sometimes the Mister and I don’t see each other much.  I require a lot of alone/downtime in the evenings. Oh, abortion and I borrowed Percy Jackson and the Olympians from my 11-year old nephew and now I just want to read.

However, I would like to play catch-up with Reverb10 but I don’t plan on doing them all – just the ones that suit my fancy.

December 21 – 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?)

Dear Self,

In 3 days you will be 35 which means in 5 years you will be 40. That’s a big number. Think about what kind of 40-year old you would like to be and if you are being honest with yourself you would say: a really hot 40-year old. So start working out now and if all else fails get those boobs fixed!

Love, Self

********************

There are a lot of things I could write to my younger self but I’m too tired to think of anything quasi-witty other than: no bangs! Or anything poignant like: stop being so afraid and just write. I could say a lot of things to my 25-year old self because I was pretty messed up when I was 25.  But, at the end of the day, everything I have done in the last 10 years has led to me have the life I have now and so to regret or want to change anything I have done means I regret or wish to change the results – and I don’t. So keep screwing up 25-year old self! It will all work out in the end.
