Letters To Myself #8

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 Me,

Remain happy.

Laugh lots.

Enjoy the little things.

Don’t take yourself too seriously.

Dance like there’s nobody watching.

Stay healthy.

Make time for family, friends and each other.

Build that studio you always wanted.

Own a VW campervan and travel the world.

Do something different.

Experience life.

Don’t hold on to negativity.

Every day is a fresh page.

Work hard – nothing comes to those who wait!

Be patient.

Take time to reflect.

Be kind.

Take note.

Take on as many new experiences as you can.

Finish all those jobs you have put off.

It’s not the end of the world if all the above haven’t quite worked out the way you want them to.

Continue to dream!!!
