Before embarking on my own wellness transformation, I decided to write a letter to my future self as a way of making my hopes and intentions for this journey clear. I’m a little embarrassed to share this, but I did say I would share everything about my self-love journey.
Here is my self-love letter to my future self:
Dear future self
Wherever you are in your life, I hope that you are happy. I hope that you have found yourtrue self and are able to live freely and in the moment. I pray that you were able to let go of all attachments that kept you bound to your struggles and that you have reached the point of food freedom.
The future I envision for you is one without anxiety and filled with trust and love. I hope that you have learned to follow your intuition and let go of all illusions and perceptions that lead to your sadness and insecurities.
I trust that you are strong and confident and believe in yourself. I imagine you will have your mini-empire by now, teaching people about nutrition and making the world a healthier place. I’m sure you’ve found a way.
Look back on your past struggles and see what you’ve had to overcome to be where you are. You must be proud and know that you have gracefully overcome darkness on your path to the light. You are exactly where you need to be. You are exactly who you need to be.
I hope you radiate and glow, not only from your super healthy diet, but because the spiritual essence of who you are is strong and cannot be destroyed. Knowing you, you spread love and joy wherever you go, because when you are happy and feel loved, you pass it on to others. Be led by love as you’ve done in the past. That way, you’ll always know that you are on the path to joy.
Becoming who you are is my greatest intention. A woman who is happy, content, and kind. A woman who is free from self-judgement and is able to just be.
