a letter to your younger self

Have you ever considered writing a letter to your younger self.  Now that you are older and wiser (yes, I am sure you are wiser) what would you say?  It may sound obscure but it actually allows you to release so much emotions, issues etc. you may have gone through.  We often reflect on our past and childhood, especially when we look at old photos.  I felt this way recently as I found myself looking through my high school yearbook.  Now that brought back a lot of memories – friends, awkwardness, trying to save the world and of course dating.  There is so much I would say to this younger Rubiena and so, I wrote a letter to her.  At first it felt almost uncomfortable but then it just became easier and afterwards I felt great.

Give it a go I know you won’t regret it.

Take Care,
Rubiena
