A Letter to My Future Self:

Dear Future Self,

I hope you’ve let go of the small things that bother you about yourself, and found joy in how strong you are. I hope you haven’t dwelled on the little mistakes that you thought were the end of the world. 

I hope you have confronted your inner fears, smashed your insecurities, and let go of your doubts about your strengths and embraced them as well. I hope you have let go of the stress that used to build up and eat away at you.

I hope you aren’t afraid of what people think of you, and love yourself no matter what they do think. I hope you’re embracing feeling vulnerable, making connections, tending to relationships, and looking for adventures.

I hope you have given all that you could to your family, your friends, and those you care for you, but not forgetting to take care of yourself.

I hope your dreams have come true, that you’ve lived life to the fullest and made the most of each day as you always said you would when you were younger.

I hope you feel confident that you’ve tried your best to be the best mom, despite a constant weight of ‘mom-guilt’, worry, and judgment that you put on yourself. I hope you have realized that you were just the mom your children needed.

I hope you continue to have a desire to learn and grow, to never stop figuring out how you can be a better version of yourself, and to help others see what they cannot.

I hope you traveled and saw places in the world you thought you wouldn’t and made lasting memories with family and friends along the way. 

I hope you’ve stayed strong in your faith. I hope you’ve known He was there every step of the way and trusted that He had you in his hands, always.

Most of all, I hope you are happy with your life as you look back on all the beautiful memories. 

Until we meet, Future Self,

Me
