A Letter to My Future Self From My College Self…

Dear Future Me,

Looking back at those past four college years, they definitely did fly by. Mom and Dad weren’t lying when they said these are the fastest, and best four years of your life. Walking into my freshman year, all confused not knowing what to do and going to class; I can tell this is going to be a crazy ride. I’m going to be exposed to relationships, parties and a lot of studying. It can be hard to manage all of that sometimes, but I’m more than ready to tackle it. I have no idea what I want to major in, something business… finance, marketing, entrepreneurship… there’s so much to choose from. I have no idea what my future looks like, but hopefully it’s something great.

I hope you’re the wise, mature graduate I wanted to be. I hope you’re successful and find the man of your dreams. I hope you stayed close to your family in Cincinnati or Columbus, because they’re the best thing to ever happen to you. I hope you’ve done everything I wish to do. You met a lot of people in college, but who’s still left years later? Are you still the girl who has 20 friends she can call up when she’s bored? Or is it only 3? Who do you marry? What’s your occupation? I hope it’s what I want. You’ve overcome a lot of obstacles, and now it’s all finally paying off. Congratulations, you did it! You’re facing the real world as confident as you can be.

I hope you’re still your fun, goofy self that enjoys making people laugh. I hope you still take 30 minutes out of your night to speak to God. I hope you still look at life in a positive light. I hope you grew into the woman I wanted you to.

This is all scary and you don’t know what to expect, but I encourage you to be an influence. I want to be an influence. I want to inspire people to do what’s right, to follow their dreams. I want to help people in times of need, each and every day. I hope you’re doing that.

Just remember, in life, happiness is the most important. Always look at life in a positive light, you’ll have those bad days, but that’s what makes the great days, GREAT! I have no idea where you’ll be in the future, but just relax and remember Bob Marley, “every little thing, is gonna be alright.”  I promise you.

Sincerely,

Emily

    Great blog!!! I can definitely relate to this. It’s always brighter looking back at things, so I have got to stop being so hard on myself all the time.
