Dear future me,

cute dear future me lyrics sayingToday is the the last day of 2016. A next year will start tomorrow and it will bring new challenges, new accomplishments, new friends and more new years resolutions that you will half stick to.
I want you to take the time to reflect on this past year. What was your happiest moment, what was the saddest? Which person did you have a deeper connection with? What have you overcome? Did anything surprised you? Has something completely changed your way of thinking? Is there anything you regret doing? Is there anything you wish you had done?
You by now will have finished school, and have maybe even started to study. I am proud of you for that. I am sure it will have been hard work. But you got through it. Hopefully with good scores?
Unpredictable things will have happened too. Did you conquer them?

A lot can happen in a year. C.S Lewis said once: “Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different...”.  Years can fly by and yet can hold pain or happiness for a lifetime. Every day is different and every situation evolves differently.
A problem can, for example, seem huge at first and then dissolve so easily, you ask yourself why you ever cared. Or a memory, that might just have been a small, single moment, can intertwine with another small, single moments and evolve into another memory. Meeting new people for example: Everyone starts as a stranger. Or falling in love.
What I am saying is: yes, you have probably faced a great deal of problems this year, but think about how everything has found it's way. How something turned out so well and how you don't have to think about that problem any more. It will all evolve and so will you.

For the next year you should pick that as you motto. It will not only inspire you to not be worried and to sit back, because everything will find its way, it will also be a reminder to live in the moment. Feel every moment, catch every second of it and be aware. Always take everything you can from moments, laugh and learn, because everything will evolve.

Trust in the evolution of time, in God and in yourself for 2017. Know that already you have achieved a lot and you will achieve more. And everything will turn out fine.
