Take a moment and think. If you could write a letter to yourself and mail to the past, what would you say? Would you give yourself advice? Tell yourself not to do a certain something? Maybe to do a certain something?

I think we all would love this opportunity. I know I would. For the most part, I am pretty happy with the life I have lived thus far. Like many, I have had some major ups, but also some major downs. I have done a lot of things right, but have also done things wrong. I have been proud, yet disgraced.

If I could write a letter to myself and mail it to my past, I would say many things.

Dear Me,

You'll face many trials in life. Some good and some bad. Learn from your mistakes and take the high road to become a better person.

Always help those in need as some will help you when you feel you are down and out.

Watch your finances closely. If you're not careful, they can get away from you in the blink of an eye.

Choose wisely in your mate. You'll succeed and fail. Once married, you'll become divorced but don't worry, you'll find love and be married again.

Life can be very hard but stay focused. You will have children that look up to you and you will need to be the best example you can. Be that example.

Most of all, it's worth it. Carry on.

Sincerely,

Future You

What would you tell yourself?
