❇The key to making healthy decisions is to respect your future self. Honor him or her. Treat him or her like you would treat a friend or a loved one. - A. J. Jacobs
Right. It's June already. I don't know about you but I feel like a snake about to shed its skin. I was reflecting that when we cast our skin, let go of the old, we are first more exposed, vulnerable, sensitive. We are also more open. Tara Brach talks about this beautifully, see details in the Digest.
That said, I feel a bit raw and unprepared for getting back out into the world but luckily I have an Inner Mentor who I introduce you to in Looking Forward. She's wiser and smarter than me, so I'm trying to take a leaf from her book. Actually, I was reminded by someone yesterday that you can write to your Future Self and choose the delivery date of the message via FutureMe.org or even choose to write the message to someone else in the future where you thank them for how they contributed to your life. Fun exercise. Both worth a try.
