Full Moon  2018-style

For the past two years, I've participated in the Future Me writing project. Write a letter to your one-year-in-the-future self, and it will be emailed to you in one year. 

Yesterday, I received last year's letter. It's sort of a wish list, sort of a high five. I'm sharing it with you here. 

Dear FutureMe, 
Congratulations on another year in the books. 
Against the odds, you've maintained your sobriety and your faith. 
You're surrounded by people you adore, who adore you back. 
Your family is a strong force of good in the world. 
You did what it takes to get your health back and endured a lot of uncomfortable BS to make it happen. 
You spent less time sitting at the computer and more time writing on the computer. 
It all felt easier this year since you learned to look after yourself first. 
You've loved, created, sung, cried, and laughed - accepting all the life stuff and you've approached it with grace, and forgiveness. 
It's all okay. It's all going to be okay. 

I'm going to continue the tradition. Consider it. 


  1. Your commitment to writing and living life to its best is so so inspiring! Happy New Year!
