Today I found a website FutureMe where you could write a letter to yourself delivered at a specific future date. A letter to receive inbox years later is a heavy topic, but I have a long-awaited journal would start on 28th, so I'd like to write myself a letter before beginning and receive it when I back to work.  Here's the letter.


Dear FutureMe,

It's dark and cold outside, I just finished my dinner standing in front of the computer to write as usual.  When you read this letter, your dreaming trip was over and you are back to work as usual now. I can imagine what a wonderful vacation you'd have with the one you loved. Your cellphone must have been filled with beautiful photos and selfies. A one-week vacation could create enough possibilities to change.

Since February, you have been anxious about the fact that a quarter of your entire time was over according to your life calendar. Past two months you have broken your old version by trying so many new experiments, the result is you are kind of overwhelmed and inefficient recently. A vacation is necessary and helpful, but  I'm worried that you'd be loose mentally after the trip. I want you could answer firmly that you are still motivated to be a better human then I would be proud of you.

Start recording your life and thoughts in your journal, transfer time into text, images, videos and common experiences, express yourself, be brave of ageing. 

Now I'll send the letter.

      @keni
      Kind of shy to share it.
      It's a journal with my boyfriend😊. We are 1,500 kilometers apart and only be together twice for vacation every year. So it's a long waited journal, traveling with him for a week talking about everything happened during our separation. It's kind of a tradition in our relationship over past four years.

    Amazing idea. Keni, don't you think it's about time we crowd write letters to my younger self and even make a podcast of it. It could just be a long term idea, simple tasks every week. We should complete it in 6 - 9 months or even more (to reduce pressure) and it wouldn't affect us as such.
