A letter to my future self.


As a follow up to my letter to my seventeen year old self, I thought I'd write one to my twenty five year old self (I thought 25 would be a good age to pick).

Dear you,

I really hope you're still blogging and you've built up a decent audience by now, by this time it'd be almost 9 years since you first set up your blog and in that time you've learnt how to connect socially, professionally and how to engage an audience. You've improved your writing skill drastically and you're really enjoying it. If in four years you've decided to pack it in then no worries, as long as you're enjoying life and have found other ways to occupy your time.

I really hope you've started freelance writing by now, I know how much you've been wanting to do that ever since you were about five and that maybe you're thinking about a degree in creative writing or media, there are loads of universities that offer that and even online ones.

Or who knows, maybe you have a part time job by now that you've actually managed to stick at. Sorry, I didn't mean for that to sound brash, but I know how much you want to start earning your own money again and if freelance writing doesn't work out it's the next best thing.

As well as this, I hope you've met some new interesting people since my last letter, and that you're getting out a bit more and that you value the friends and family you have around you. Maybe by now you'll have been to some blogging events or volunteered at festivals and met people that way.

And I really do hope you've started vlogging again, I know how much you miss your youtube channel and you miss couponing, and however awkward you are in front of the camera, this'll be the burst of confidence that you've needed for many years.

Anyway, things are going well at the moment, despite being depressed and some of the time, hopefully in four years my mindset will have changed. Has it? Please write back to me when you're 25.

I absolutely loved writing this post and I can't wait to see what my life looks like in the future, I'm hoping it'll be good. Anyway, what would you tell to your future self?
