A letter to my future self.

Dear Irene,

How are things with you? I hope you’re doing well. Life is crazy right now. The whole world is faced with a pandemic. What a huge blow this year has dealt us! I have been at home for close to two months. The feeling is bittersweet though. I like having enough time to read and relax but to say I miss going outside would be an understatement. Anyway, I’ll get through it. That much I’m sure of because God has got me. I hope you still put God first. You wouldn’t be reading this if it wasn’t for Him.

I hope you continue to go after your dreams with all your heart, you dreamer. You always made a big deal about the things that are important to you, however small they seem to other people and I admire you for that. Travelled anywhere recently? I bet you’ve run out of space on your fridge for all those souvenir fridge magnets you like to collect from the places you visit. Make those memories, girl. Let nothing hold you back.

I hope that by the time you read this you have opened up your bookshop and coffee shop. How you love to sit in the corner of cozy cafes with a book in hand. That’s why you’ve always wanted to create a beautiful space for others who love to read as much as you. I can’t wait to see this happen.

I hope you meet your prince charming. You know, you couldn’t hide the fact that you’re a hopeless romantic. Even a blind person could see that. If you do, I hope God is at the tip of your triangle. Give your relationship your all and be as patient as you can with your kids.

I hope you always remember to be happy. Do the things you love, the things that make your eyes sparkle and your heart beat a little faster. You’ve always been a passionate soul. I hope you still are. Take risks and never settle for less because you deserve a lot more than I can put into words. Spend time with the ones you love and make sure they know that you love them. Life is slippery.

I hope you managed to fight the procrastination that’s chewing at me like an ulcer right now. Girl, it has such a grip on me. But I’m doing my best to break free.

I hope your heart is filled to overflowing with joy and happiness. I couldn’t have wished more for you. I hope you are proud of me and the things I’ve done up until now. I’ve done some things wrong, that I know. I’m not perfect, I’m as flawed as they come but I’m working hard towards the best version of me that I can be, which I believe you are now.

Lots of love,

Irene 💛
