The Future Has Not Been Written

The Future Has Not Been Written

 

Future you

Who is that approaching you through the mist? There’s something familiar about them. They remind you of – you! Because they are you come from the future to talk to you about their past.

 

What do you want your future self to say to you?

 

Why didn’t you try harder?

 

I wasted so many years trying to please others when I knew all along what was right!

 

I wish you had realized how competent you were.

 

You should have spoken up more.

 

Or:

 

I am so glad you took that chance meeting up with X

 

I was nervous when you approached the president of the company with that wild idea of yours, but it turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to you.

 

It was hard taking that test for the third time, but if you hadn’t done it, I never would have made it this far.

 

Present you

One day you will be your future self. Imagine the things you want to be able to say to you. What you do today will determine what you will say to yourself ten, fifteen, twenty years from now. Your life has been written thus far. What are the rest of the pages going to say?
