Send It Forwards
Are you noticing that between this post, and the last, that a theme is forming? Maybe it's the time of year, but I seem to be thinking forwards and backwards. It is, after all, that resolution time of year. Today, it's all about forward thinking. I learned about this really interesting site, it's called Future Me, and I am all about it right now. The deal is, you write emails to yourself, in the future. Then, on the designated date, the email is delivered to you. How cool is that? I highly recommend you send at least one to yourself, dated for a year from now, it is totally therapeutic! I thought I'd just write a quick little somethin'-somethin' to myself for fun, but when I started writing, it was amazing, all the stuff that poured out of me. I believe it will be phenomenal to receive, and it was so cathartic to write. It was this lovely self nurturing experience. I really loved doing it, and I think I will make it a regular habit. It has so many layers to it. It could be used as a simple way to organize your life, it's a great business tool, or it could be a deeply profound reminder from the person that is, hopefully, most dear to you. I'm completely sold on it. Check it out.
