We often see people writing letters to their 10, 13, 19 year old self, but how often do we consider what our future self would say to us right now?
I’m about to go to my coaching Mastermind, and they keep encouraging us to show up as our future self.
This is not to make us feel bad about who we are now, but to challenge us to really think about WHO we want to BECOME.
So who do I want to be a year from now? Hmmm.
Let’s be honest. If we’re not growing, we’re just stagnant. We’re not becoming a different or better version.
But guess what? Time is going to pass by. You will be a year older September 11, 2020 if nothing else.
You can either have the exact same life with the exact same routine, or you can update your version.
You can either have an updated version that was given to you by life’s circumstances and the people in your life (and you accepted).
Or you can have an updated version that you intentionally chose.
Either way. Your Future Self is coming.
Who do you want to be a year from now?
Here’s a great way to think about it. Write a letter as that person to you.
To help you out, here is part of my letter from my future self:
Natalie – You are changing lives. Don’t ever forget that is why you are doing this. You want to help more women be the heroes of their own life. For them to believe they can be the leading lady, not the best friend. For them to let go of all the worry and people pleasing and rule-following that keeps them in a prison. For them to step out of the shadows with a strong voice. They can find love, value, and acceptance within themselves and then use it to create a career they want, a relationship they want, and friendships they want.
Be secure and rock it.
Go with your gut. Always. It’s a gift you have and it won’t lead you astray.
Most of all realize that ‘there’ is not better than ‘right now’, but you will have evolved to become stronger, more loving, and a more involved human. You will have created a life that will leave you skidding into heaven, which is what you want!
Last, be full of gratitude every step of the way. Be grateful for the Lord, for Darin, for your family, your choices, your mental health, your clients, and for you.
You did it. You stepped out of the boat. You stopped being a wallflower. You shined your light for others to follow. Way to go.
XO – Natalie, Sept 2020
Alright y’all. It’s your turn. Who do you want to become? And what would that woman say to you right now? I’d love to hear from you and your future self!
