Dear Future Me

Dear Future Me – Part VII

For the people that still follow this thread, I know I’m late for my regular update. This has been on my mind a lot but it’s taken me a whole year to get around to it now.

For everyone that has no idea, I post a letter, once a year, addressed to myself, one year in the future. I started this somewhere in 2015 and have continued to work through it.

Looking back, there’s so many memories that I would have forgotten had I not written them down.

Anyway, here you go, 2021’s update

Dear Future Me,

It has been a hell of a ride this year.

I’m sure the days have blurred for you already, but 2021 brought challenges that 2020 couldn’t.

Dear Future Me – Part VI

Yes, I’m going to do one of these before I get to April (that’s the usual upload) because I think this year needs to be dissected a little bit.

For everyone that has no idea, this is a tag I started years ago based on a challenge.

I write a letter meant for myself, to be read a year later. I usually end up reading these multiple times through the year though.

These are long, sometimes personal details that slip through the average readers eyes, a code only I and a select few people are meant to understand. Make of that what you will.

Dear Future Me – Part V

This is a series I started a very long time back for a challenge Savio had tagged me on.

As the name suggests, these are letters to myself a year later, talking about what past me wouldn’t want to forget.

I liked the concept a lot and it honestly feels like a time capsule to me. When I was a kid, there was a show on the TV which asked kids to write messages to themselves and then bury the bottles in their yards.

I remember being so upset because we live in flats and don’t have yards. Now this series is my message in a bottle. To myself.

Here’s the link to the rest of them, if you want to have a read.

Hi Sonali,

God, this letter is going to be a long one so better brace yourself.

Dear Future Me – Part IV

Hi everyone,

I know I’m about half a year late to update this series, but I had a good reason for holding out so long.

For those who will read this for the first time, this is a letter from the me of today (it is the 26th of December 2019) to all the mes of the future, to remind the future me of the struggles I have gotten through whenever the going gets tough.

If you’d like to read the rest of them, I’ve linked them below –

Dear Future Me Part II

Dear Future Me Part III

Now, here we go.

Dear Sonali,

I’ve just read the letters from the last three years, and I find myself moved to tears, by myself. That sounds weird, but life is, so we’ll deal with it.

Dear Future Me Part III – 2018

Way back in 2016, Savio nominated me for a challenge that continues to bring both tears and smiles to my eyes.

It’s the Dear Future Me Challenge, in which I read letters written to me, by me a year ago. If you do go to read those letters, they’re here and here.

If you ended up following those links, you’ll realise how late I am in answering myself, but I had a good reason. I wanted to be able to put this letter out only after all the formalities were complete and everything was dead certain, so I’m writing this and setting it up to release on 1St September, I’ll be somewhere over Europe by then.. or now since you’re reading this.

Here’s the actual letter

Dear Future Me (Part II) 

A year back, Savio had nominated me for a challenge. I had to write a letter to myself, that I would only read a year later. Being the extremely forgetful person that I am, I made sure to set a reminder. It showed up on my calendar yesterday.

You can read it here

It made me realise how the younger, fresher me saw life. How she predicted somehow, how I would be feeling. Little nuances of my life at that time, that were almost forgotten by me till today.
