Dear Future Me

Dear Future Me,
This letter is probably going to be funnier to me now than when I open it later, but hey it’s worth a shot! I just want to remind you of a few things from back in the day. Remember your surprise birthday party that went sour? How about the time that you crashed your mom’s car only hours after receiving your learner’s permit? Remember afterwards when you found out your friends had all crashed too? What about all of your constant stress in high school? These are things that today weigh heavily on my heart, take a toll on my everyday life, and it is so weird to think that there could possibly be a day when they won’t be relevant. I can’t imagine what I will be composed of, what I’ll believe in, and stand for. Yes my beliefs at the moment are rock solid- or so I think- but who knows what the future holds? How is one to know what will be, and what won’t be? I know this letter is filled with questions, and I suppose they won’t be answered until I open this, but in a way that’s kind of intriguing. It’s crazy how hectic my life may seem at the moment, but in a flash it may not even matter? So here’s to forgetting my (or, our?) endless fashion mishaps, cringeworthy moments, and anything that may seem important now, and here’s to focusing on the adventure of life, and to never not live in the moment. In the wise words of Ferris Bueller: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around for a while, you could miss it”.
