December 21 Future self. Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Prompt by @jenny_blake)
Dear Future MayB,
It's five years from tonight as you are reading this. (No it's not, but we're pretending.)
I hope you still have a sense of wonder about The Guy. I hope you still appreciate his gentleness and his humour. If not, remember what it's been like and how he's kept you from losing your mind more than once. Hug him and tell him you love.
Relax. Breathe. Let some of the stress out and remember that you are not in charge of the world. Laugh about something. Take the dog for a walk and enjoy his enthusiasm. If you have a kid or two now, listen to them talk about something silly and learn to enjoy every moment. Freak out about things less and move on more.
Be creative and spontaneous and fun. Don't worry about how things turn out and just do them anyway.
That is all for now.
