Positivity Boost – Letter to Myself
At the beginning of this year ( in January, to be more precise) I wrote a letter to myself – my current self. The rule was not to read it until December 2018. I wanted to find see if my vision changes in time. If so, is it better or worse?
To be honest, I actually forgot about the letter so my promise was kept. A few days ago I randomly found it, while I was browsing through my old articles on We Heart It. I was a bit nervous to click it, just in case I disappointed my old self, but I was also curious. Here’s the letter, if you want to see it.
After reading it, I had mixed feelings, but the last part definitely made me laugh – as weird as it sounds. And yes, I still have the light bulb glass.
Let’s take it part by part. Positivity has stayed with me almost all year long. I’ve had ups-and-downs here and there, but generally speaking, my optimism remained untouched. Yay! As regards selfishness, umm… I’m not sure how that would work with me. I do care about my blogging adventure and I invest A LOT of time in it. It does mean the whole world to me, but I think I tried to make myself seem more selfish than I am. (Why? I’m not sure. Maybe I mistook it with confidence.)
Overall, I think I achieved the things I had on my list, besides Spanish which has not been worked on at all. X_X
Although it has been long since January, I could still feel the energy and enthusiasm there. I felt happier and more determined after reading the letter. I guess sometimes the best person to encourage you is yourself. And it’s great having this emotional reminder on why you started and how much you want to achieve your goal.
The reason why I decided to share this with you is to encourage you to do the same. There’s not much left of this year, so write a letter to yourself. You could follow my rules or create your own.
Find the best words to motivate you through eventual hard times. Or express gratitude for all the little things you’re so happy to have (Just don’t mention anything you’re not sure you can keep for a long time – imagine my precious light bulb glass would have been long gone😬). Do some silly art meant to brighten your day. Or simply write about your day to see if anything changes within a certain period of time.
No only it will feel therapeutic putting it together, but it will make your future self happy to open it.
✨Be part of a soulful family!✨
