It’s now day eight of the Blogging University Course. The task today was to write a letter to someone or something. I sat for a long time trying to decide who to write to and became overwhelmed by ideas. So many to choose from, that I felt stranded in a sea of choice and couldn’t move on and do it! I’ve therefore decided to reblog a previous letter I wrote to myself. Apologies to those who have already seen it.
Dear youthful me,
I know you don’t tend to listen to advice from anyone and you know better; but perhaps you’ll take it from me, your older self:
Talk to everyone who is important in your life. Really talk to them. Ask the big questions because life is fleeting. Before you know it they’re gone and you’ll miss the chance to find out about the stuff that matters.
Phone your mum on that first night you move from home. She’ll be hurt you didn’t call her to let her know you were there and happy.
Travel to many places and continents and never lose your curiosity about the world around you. Pick places on the map, book the flights (even if you’re skint) and go. You’ll save because you make it a priority. Those are what memories are made of.
Your mum will be the best friend you ever have.
