Write a Letter to a Future Self
If you had received a letter from the younger version of yourself, what would you have written? What would you wish for yourself today if you were 10 years younger? An inspirational letter to your future self might just be what you need to become motivated to achieve your goals. This website is sure to be helpful when it comes to writing an email that you can read over and over again, setting goals and sending yourself a message with wishes in one, five, or even ten years from now.
That being said, fear not, FutureMe is here! Once you’ve decided that now is the time for self-reflective greatness, enter an email address or your name to begin writing.
In addition to signing up, FutureMe gives links to three Pinterest boards that are great for boosting motivation: fitness motivation, creative motivation and business/career motivation.
Alright, ready to write? Let’s go!
The website is pretty straightforward, but the text box is pretty large, so you’ll have plenty of space. FutureMe suggests writing for 5-10 minutes which could be about 300-500 words. With that in mind, choose a date in the future or days from today when you’ll read your letter and start writing!
Take a moment to reflect on what you want the future to bring you over the next year, five years, ten years? FutureMe allows you to visualize your dreams. Predict anything about your life, the world, or how you feel. You might want to make a resolution for the coming year. Even writing a letter to yourself in the future could be therapeutic!
After you’ve finished filling out the letter, FutureMe says it will be delivered by email. If this doesn’t sound like it fits your needs, there is an option to print out the letter, so make sure and check that!
