I recently found a post online from someone who had written a note to self, left it in her drawer for a year, then dug it out to see if she had fulfilled the goals and ideas that she had recorded in that note. When I came across this postal notebook, I knew that I had to try the idea for myself. So, I sat down and wrote a note to myself. I wrote what I wanted to accomplish in the next 6 months, a year, 10 years. I wrote down all the things I was grateful for and I wrote about what I thought my life would look like when I pull out this notebook again. I addressed it to myself, and it will wait in a drawer for the day that I rediscover it. I wonder if I’ll have achieved my goals, and if I’ll still be thankful for the same things in life, but I guess only time will tell.
