Present-day you meets 10-years-ago you for coffee. Share with your younger self the most challenging thing, the most rewarding thing, and the most fun thing they have to look forward to.
Ten years ago I would have just recently turned 22. I’m not quite sure if I was still in my share house with the lesbians, or in my share house with the girl with cerebral palsy.
Back when I was 22, I was a bit of a hot mess. I was on this whole ‘on-again-off-again’ thing with my ex, was enjoying a lot of social time on weekends and loving my independence.
I’d be telling myself that I need to get into the gym immediately, because it would be one of the best decisions that I would ever make, and would probably change future (current) me and where I am now.
Perhaps the most challenging things would be finding the right male suitor for a relationship, however, he will come along and it will be the most challenging and rewarding decision. It’ll teach you a lot about yourself; enabling you to grow emotionally and become more in touch with your feelings.
The most fun thing that they have to look forward to? It’s too hard to pinpoint one precise moment, but instead, it would be to savour the moments you have with your friends – those moments where you find yourself in cheek-aching, ab-hurting, eye-crying fits of laughter. These are the moments that need to be completely savoured and treasured.
I’d also make sure that I keep in touch with the hypnotherapy guy… I’ve been thinking about him lately, wishing I kept his details. I could use some hypno sessions again.
