I was surprised. First of all, I never thought I'd ever get that e-mail. Even if I did, I already forgot about it. I wrote that and forgot about it. But I did give it a long time to think and write.
Second of all, it's heart breaking. All the dreams and hope I had for my future self. I was so innocent back then. I used to think higher of me, and I'm so sad that I wasn't able to succeed at it.
Surely, I did succeeded on some goals, and some unwritten goals as well, but it breaks my heart to see my expectation not meet the reality.
After reading mine and going over to the 'FutureMe' website, I saw other people posting public future me messages. Some people were writing too far away like in 4000 AD. Most of them were like, "Hey people in the future, I hope humanity is still alive to read this. If you are then well done. You did good."
It's like trying to be immortal. It had some kind of nostalgic vibe. I loved it. I felt so timeless. I don't know.
I would have written all this properly, but I just want to post this blog. And hence, I'm writing it quickly.
Here's the link to the FutureMe website: FutureMe.org
Go ahead and write a letter to your future self. Trust me, you'll be very happy that you did when you'll receive the e-mail some years from now.
More over, your thinking will get in line with the value you posses. For example, I started out with some goals in my mind, and after reading those old letters, I'm starting to get into the same frame of mind.
If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have known which frame of mind I came from.
