Letters To Myself #4

Published by Alison Watson-Shields on

As part of Young At Heart ULO’s commitment to encourage and promote opportunities for self-reflection, our members and volunteers are offered the opportunity to write a letter to their past, present or future self on a  regular basis. The letters can be serious reflections on their life or can be a tongue-in-cheek commentary on life in general. Group members can write their own letter or they can work with other people to collectively express thoughts, feelings and emotions. What follows is one of the contributions provided by a group member at one of the writing sessions…

Dear Present Self,

If only I knew years ago what I know now my life would be completely different. I would have been a lot more careful with what I did to look after my body as to not end up with the problems I now have. Maybe choosing a different profession would have helped no end? As for other aspects of my life there is a lot I would change, including my second marriage.
