    Although I’ve never written myself a letter (sounds funny putting it that way, but you get me), I’ve always loved the prospect of it. The idea of writing to future you means having that self-love that a lot of us lack; it means that we’re taking care of ourselves and making sure we remember the things important to us and what makes us US. And so I really liked reading your letter to future Xandra – I’m sure 2018 Xandra would be pleased to read this back. Thank you for sharing!

    I’ve done a couple of these as development exercises, and I always enjoy looking back at them. But honestly, I hate writing them, because I never know what I want to say!

    I LOVE this letter!! So authentic. I haven’t done this before, but I actually really really want to now. You’re totally right when you say that writing a letter to yourself is so much better than a memo or whatever.

    I think 2017 is going to be such an amazing year for you- I can’t wait to see where you end up! <33

    This was such a lovely thing to read! I don’t really write letters to myself, mostly because I get too in my own head about it and start freaking out. Also, I get weirdly bummed out if I haven’t managed to achieve whatever it was that I wanted to achieve.

    Can’t wait to see when 2017 takes you! <3
