The Phone Call from my Future Self
Tuesday, August 06, 2013
My future self is very happy, fit, and enjoying her life very much. She has lost all of the weight that she wanted to and has kept it off! She has that joyful spring in her step. She still walks to work everyday and enjoys more social time and dancing than she used to.
The kids are growing up but are always an integral part of every day. She is so proud of them. She has been an excellent role model for them and they are all leading healthy, fulfilling lives.
The house is simple and neat, with little extra to cause chaos and clutter. Coming home is a rest in itself - a peaceful haven.
My future self takes time to call her friends and spend time outdoors gardening. She loves the fresh air and the quiet.
She tells me not to give up. Despite my own frustrations and my doubts right now, the future is very good - and I will be very happy with the results of all of my hard work and sacrifices.
She tells me she wishes she could send me a big hug over the phone - that she knows that I'm needing it right now.
I tell her "Thank you. I will keep going. I won't let you down."
