I never advice anyone to change the past. Why we should talk about change the past to make our future better? But still on someone’s request I decided to write a letter to my past self on behalf of my future self :)
My Dear Past Self,
Hope you are doing good and enjoying yourself. I know that you like “to do” lists. I am sure about this. You have my full assurance. In fact you ll have one for each day, one for each week passing by. Hopefully, you will also have one for the rest of your life too.
I know you consider yourself master of your own universe but please do not forget that there is always a sense of accomplishment from being able to chuck out some items off that list. Its a fact that you ll thrive on feeling accomplished.
In front of the world, you show that you are so cool, calm and relaxed during the exams and presentations. But remember one thing, all you need is to win the “to do” lists that is saved in your dictionary. If something is willing to be happened, it will happen and it will not only happen, but it will happen on time.
There is no absolute control on this. No body is imposing any order on you. This is your skill. This is your talent. Your strength. Your power and trust me no one else can take away this from you.
Time will come when the over grown discontentment will fester inside you. There will be no time left for you to crave anymore. I am sure you have understood what I am talking about. You have seen the flashes of my happy life that came only for short period of time.
Do you remember the time when you proposed a girl in front of entire class because you just wanted to? You remember the time when the girl you loved so much married the other guy? You remember the first love whom you made me meet again after so many years?
Trust me these little moments of rebellion will never ever change.
There will be a time when you ll have no plans except to live life to the fullest. You will trust that your life will make a positive change sooner. You will realize that it is not about choosing the right career path in your life or making all your dreams come true. It is actually the process of making yourself happy and to give life a reason for living.
You ll feel like not adjusting yourself in the precise mold but you would like to adjust yourself in the most chaotic moments of your life. This is the part of live where you ll feel yourself alive.
If not this you ll find yourself locked in an isolated room with no light. Give your life a reason of living, not for others, but for your own self. Involve people who wants to see you happy always.
Your to be Future Self
