I stumbled across this site future me the other day, and I just can't stop thinking about it. I love it's simple premise, to write a letter to your future self today, set a date in the future to receive it and then ideally forget about it until the day it arrives. It's interesting to think about what the me of today would say to the me of tomorrow as well as imagining the me of tomorrow, reading what the me of today wrote to me "back then". There's a different tone and clarity in imagining writing a note to oneself with the knowledge that one day it'll actually be sent to you. It's a very interesting and exciting idea.
I've been wondering what I'd say in a letter to my future self, if I was to do such a thing. And what keeps coming up for me is that I'd write something about hoping that I'd found more peace in living with diabetes. More peace. More comfort. More gentleness. More balance. That's pretty much where I keep landing. I don't think I'd say much about better A1C's or new technologies or better management. No, I really think I'd send hope to myself, hope that I feel more peace in my heart around diabetes, pure and simple.
