Dear FutureMe

6 years ago I received a letter. It was from an association which organizes job fairs in the Czech Republic. I opened it and realized it was my handwriting. A letter I wrote to myself exactly one year earlier as part of an excercise for fresh university graduates looking for jobs. I completely forgot about that. And here I was reading through my own goals, dreams and expectations. It was an incredibly powerful moment.

Then I learnt about FutureMe – a website which delivers a letter to yourself via e-mail whenever you want.

A lot has been written and said about the COVID-19 pandemic. The world will never be the same, our lives will probably change. But even with things we cannot influence we can choose our attitude.

These days my mind revolves around gratefulness. Things that are gone, that I took for granted and I wish I had them now. Things that I still have and I am grateful for this wake-up call to see them. I want to remember these thoughts. Will I still feel grateful 6 months from now? 1 year? 5 years? Let’s see…

What would you write to your future self?
