Dear Future Me

Dear Future Me,

I hope that today you are the person you always set out to be. I hope you accomplished everything that they said you could never do. 

How many lives do you change in a day? 

Do you speak out for what is right, or sit there regretting your silence? I hope you are what I’m not. I hope you speak out with such a voice that everyone around you can hear it even when you aren’t speaking. I want you to have power in the way you speak- giving light into someone’s world filled with darkness. 

I hope you live as if you are the only one capable of making a difference, and embracing that ability in the best way possible. You don’t need to have your name written in the text of a history book, but you need to live to make your words give life to the ones who thought they didn’t deserve one. 

When you read this letter, I hope you are somewhere where all of you previous goals can be made accomplishments. I hope you still remember your past, and pass on your story to those who need to hear it most- to show them that they are not alone. 


I hope you achieved that brighter, happier life you used to daydream about when you were younger. I hope all of your dreams became your reality, and I hope that eventually your nightmares dissolved into the depths of your past- never haunting you again. 

I hope that you one day took off the mask that hid the truth. That you broke down the barriers you built, and learned to trust someone - really trust them - somewhere along your journey. 

I hope that you look in the mirror with a small, true smile and be proud of what you see. I hope that you learned to break through the surface of the water drowning you- anxiety.  I hope that you now see the world from a whole new perspective, and learned to enjoy the sun more than the rain.. 

Most of all, I hope you learned to speak. To speak in such a voice that must be heard; a voice that embroiders your words onto a heart that needed them most. 

I hope you are happy, and teach ones who are like the old you to be happy as well. I hope that today you are the person you always set out to be.

Sincerely, Your Past

I wanted to update this blog so much but due to my current hectic schedule, blogging has become a luxury I couldn't afford. So for now, let me just share this interesting piece I found from one of my favorite Facebook Pages - berlin-artparasites. About the page: Artparasites shares compelling artwork that alters the way we live, love, work, play, think and feel. Hailing from Berlin.

  1. I could echo everything you said here to my future self. I really hope I'd be so much better (my fear is to get stuck) and that I'll be really really really happier. :)
