Day3: 31 Days to Reset Your Life – Write a Love Letter to Your Future Self

Today’s exercise was pretty cool! I was tasked with writing a love letter to my future love… ME! The idea was to write an inspiring letter detailing how much I’ve improved in the seven areas I mentioned in my post yesterday. You can copy & paste the letter into futureme.org where you can set a future date for your letter to be emailed to you – how cool is that?!?! You can also read other user’s love letters to themselves. Here’s my love letter to myself:

Dear Future Jazzy,
Girl, welcome back! It’s been a long time since I’ve
seen you, but I am so glad that you decided to show up with a bang! Congrats on
all the progress you’ve made thus far! Choosing to take an honest look at your
life was one of the best decisions you could have made.
It’s been a month, and now you have even more to be
grateful for in each area of your life, including:
Lifestyle: You’ve made such an effort to get out
more and enjoy life with & without the company of friends/family. You’ve
tried new things and have enjoyed finding new places to hang out & visit. Although
you are still in GA, you are no longer just dreaming of traveling, but you
already have 2 trips in the works for 2014!!
Career & Work: You still love your flexibility,
but since you know Credigy is NOT the company for you – you’ve made positive
moves to find your passion and the career that best fits in with that. I’m
confident that once you do that, the contentment and happiness with your career
& work will improve significantly. But in the meantime, you are no longer
the negative Nellie and you will look for the best in all situations, even at
work. I see you, girl!
Money & Finances: This is area was not too bad
for you, but I see you making monthly payments on both of your student loans,
getting those paid down! The increase in pay will come with your new career and
with God’s blessing on your life. Keep making positive choices!
Health & Wellness: A month or so ago, you were
completely unhappy with your health & wellness but you were doing nothing
to make it better. But look at you now! You are working out 4-5 times a day, more
toned and making a conscious effort everyday to make better choices regarding
diet & exercising. I bet you feel better too!
Family & Friends:  You stopped worrying about cultivating new
relationships with others and worked on cultivating the relationship with
yourself and look at the payoff! You have good friends and family that love you
and with God on your side, that’s all you need.
Love & Romance:  I think spending time focusing on you made all
the difference in the world. I love this quote:
 “If you aren’t
good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since
you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even
giving to yourself” – Barbara De Angelis
 
It is so true! The more and more you fall in love
with yourself the less and less being single will bother you AND you will be
ready for the man that’s for you. But in the meantime, there is nothing wrong
with mingling and meeting new people. Get out there with your new trimmed
physique, gorgeous legs and awesome smile!
Personal Growth & Spirituality: You were good
here a month ago and you’ve only grown more!
I can’t express how happy I am for you. Your outlook
on life is so much better now and it’s all because of your hard work. Keep
striving for the best you!

My take away from this exercise:
I’m excited to see if what I’ve put out in the atmosphere for my future self will be as I stated it. I’m optimistic that it will because writing it and posting it will make me more accountable. To be honest, I don’t want to get that email in a month and not live up to my personal expectations. I made sure to be realistic so that while it may not be easy, it is attainable.
Til tomorrow….
