Reverb 21

Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?) (Author: Jenny Blake) (

I do not understand this question; surely, if I knew what would lead to the best outcome 10 years from now, I would be doing it. In fact, what I *am* doing now is my best guess at what *would* make my future self happy (except all those Quality Streets I just ate, which my 42-year-old self is probably none too impressed by).

I don’t at all understand what I’m supposed to write here–a fantasy where my 2021, rich and famous and wildly adored self congratulates me on fine work ethic and great ideas? Or something silly, about how bad my skin will be in 10 years if I keep consuming chocolate at this rate? I just don’t get it; my life at the moment reflects the best information I have.

    Go to my blog. I did this one. i wrote advice that I imagine my 35 year old self would give my 30 year old self for the upcoming year. It’s a bit ridiculous, but i just tried to imagine what my future self will be like. Super-wise, I think. And also very good-looking.
