A Letter to my future self

Dear Future Self

As I’m sat writing this I have no idea what I’m doing with my life. But, as you are reading this at this point I hope you have it all figured out. As I’m sat here all confused and stressed because the path to where I want to be is not as straightforward as I thought. I hope as you read this you are thinking that it was all worth it and you are glad I didn’t give up.

I hope where you are now, you are above anything else, happy. I hope you are at the place you have always dreamed of and I hope it is exactly how you imagined everything to be. I hope you have created the life you cannot wait to get out of bed every morning.

I hope that you have found the person who you want to spend the rest of your life with. I hope that they are nice, kind and treat you how you deserve to be treated. Please don’t ever take them for granted.

I hope you have your own home and decorated it exactly how you always dreamed of. I hope your home is cosy and full of love and happiness. And I hope your weekends are filled with lots of tea, books, and Harry Potter marathons. Yes, I hope you are still obsessed with Harry Potter as you were.

I hope you haven’t forgotten the younger version of yourself, the lessons you learnt and the struggles you faced. I hope you always remember those and carry them with you always. And I hope you still keep in contact with the people who made you who you are today, those who helped you when times were tough. I hope you tell them how much you appreciate and love them.

Those that have hurt you, I hope you have found it in your heart to forgive them. I hope that the people you surround yourself with now are happy for you and celebrate every little success. Most importantly, I hope you have forgiven yourself for your past mistakes and I hope you are never hard on yourself. 

I hope the future treats you well. I am so proud of who you have become.

From your younger self.
Mariam X
