Why Don’t You Revel Now

The Multiple Personalities strike again. Past Heather wrote Future Heather a Birthday email.  She was pretty darn smart, Past Heather.


FutureMe.org is pretty awesome.  Super user friendly and a great concept.  It’s a digital word time capsule of sorts. Why don’t you write an email to your future self, too.

Don’t know what you want to say to yourself? Why not take Past Heather’s advice: Revel today – what about today is important to you?  Describe it to yourself. Write what you know. Write what you’re questioning. Write what worries you and what makes you proud. Write your NOW story. You’ll thank yourself later!

  1. oh heather, i love this! my high school english teacher had us do this during my senior year of high school. she then mailed the letters to us during our final year of college. it was SO neat to hear from my younger self and read what was important to me then and how things have changed since. perhaps my favorite part was my advice to myself!

  3. What a cool thing to do. I love this! I always hear people writing letters to their younger selves, but I like this even more. Past Heather is pretty wise :)

  6. I love this idea! I used to make time capsules in school and I would make little ones for myself. Its always funny looking back and seeing how things have changed but how similar they still are.

  7. What a cool idea for a site. In any point in our lives we’re feeling a certain way, worrying about things in the near as well as distant future, and stressing about things that just happened or are going on currently. I like the idea that these emails to yourself puts everything into perspective. I think I’ll write one to myself about enjoying the present and being aware of myself each day.

  8. That is super cool!!! I am going to have to check it out. Thank you for sharing!

  9. This is such a cool idea! I did it a few times at school- its amazing how foreign past self sounds some times. (and foolish sometimes too!). Neat idea.

  10. I love this idea! I’ve just written my future self an anniversary email (my birthday is too soon as you have to send it at least 30 days into the future) – thanks for introducing me to the site! :)
