Letter to Self – No Postage Required. (Chapter 12)
About midway through my chemotherapy, I attended a workshop where we wrote letters to ourselves. The topic was, “where do you see yourself one year from now?” I was the only one in the room with cancer. I was in treatment and didn’t know what my future held. I was bald. I still had to face radiation and future surgeries.
I will never forget the feeling I had when I read that letter months later. Here are my takeaways from my letter.
Always Be Grateful – I was reminded of how far I had come and of all I had endured.
Envision the Future – Does anyone really know what their future holds? Why not dream?
Appreciation - What is good at this present moment?
Achievement - A gentle reminder of pivotal successes.
Now it’s your turn. I suggest turning on your CD and play “The Water is Wide” or any music that will help open your heart. Write a letter to your future self. Be very detailed when envisioning your future.
I HOPE YOU DANCE!
