A letter to myself | This time next year...

Hey there!

Recently life has taken me on a real roller-coaster of events - cliché I know, but seriously if you knew what I've been through in these past couple of weeks, I'm sure you'd agree that it's appropriate. There are so many things holding me back from my ultimate goals I wish to achieve and I hope to overcome them one day. Most  importantly though, I'm determined to stop this constant battle I fight with myself everyday, so focusing on the present is priority! 


One whole year ago today, you wrote this letter to yourself. I hope wherever you may be, that you're laughing at how silly this all sounds right now, knowing that in the past 365 days of last year your life has changed more than it ever has before and you're now a transformed woman. Or maybe I'm just daydreaming again, you know how good I am at that...

I'm writing this to you, almost 2 months into my apprenticeship, sat alone in the cosy little corner of my very own office, remember that? Fingers crossed you haven't messed up in your job and are still sat here 365 days later in a brand new office, knee deep in paperwork, powering through - wow, I'm happy for you! 

How did you cope with last year's New Year's resolutions? You better not have let me down, I'm counting on you to do well! You better have shed that weight you've promised me you'd lose since forever? I hope you're not still binging on chocolate and any other greasy temptations you can find? I hope that jerk of yours last year has become a man and is treating you well - I'm really praying you finally work out! 

You're a legal adult too and I bet you still haven't bothered with driving lessons...*rolls eyes* I'm not surprised, you've always been a professional procrastinator, but I hope this time you've surprised me!

Anyway I better be off, I've done way too much procrastinating at work already today...

Bye for now! Xxx


  1. this is such a great idea, I love recording memories so I may give this a go! xx

  2. Ha, this makes me want to write a letter to myself. Learn to drive! It's the best thing you could do and really makes working a lot easier as you don't have to rely on public transport.

    1. You should totally do it, I'd love to read it! I need to get the motivation to start driving, but I'm sure I'll get there eventually! :) xx

  3. What a great idea, and it really makes you wonder where your life will be this time next year!
