A Letter For The Future (100 Ideas 2)

Envelope (100 Ideas 2)
Of the first few tasks Mim and I agreed on doing, I kept postponing this one. I had an idea what I would like to do, but didn´t feel like starting it. But I did buy a nice red envelope and two beautiful sheets of paper with a watermark.
Today I finally wrote the letter. It was easy once I started writing.

3. Write a letter to yourself in the future.
I plan to open it on New Year´s Eve 2009. The content means a lot to me. Of course I had to blur the text. It is too personal to show it to everybody.

I think it is a briliant idea. I´ll make one for me , too.

Hmm...I was going to write to myself about 20 years in the future, next year is coming too fast for me already.

@JaKo: let us know if you post about it. :)

@Mim: actually i had planned to write a letter for myself when i´m about 50(?) years old. but my life hasn´t exactly been wonderful the past years and so i needed to write this letter, so that in one year i will have to change a few things in case nothing turned to the better side. and i didn´t want to wait 20 years for that. ;)

@Forever Young: i´m surely going to be scared opening the letter in one year as i also might not like what i read or see. i just wrote down some decisions which weren´t easy and which will demand a lot of me at the worst.
