Topic #191: Write a short letter to yourself, to be read one year from now. You don’t have to post the entire letter, but you do have to a) write it b) post about what surprised you the most about what you wrote, or whether you found the experience interesting or not.
And don’t forget to set a reminder in your calendar to read it in one year.
I must admit that I have never written to myself. It was interesting to see what I would write / had written to myself. The letter is highly personal and before I started to write, I played with the notion about actually posting it on the blog. After I asked myself some deep hard questions about my life surrounding the issues of marriage, my kids, job, and life, I found the letter too personal to submit publicly.
The content of the letter surprised me because I thought I had serendipitously navigated the road map of my life. Obviously there are still issues I am vexed with when it comes to certain aspects of it. I can tell you that being a single father with two kids on the verge of teenage-dom was the single biggest theme throughout the letter.
Well until next time.
