Dear You, From You

Dear Matt,

It’s 2015 – I’m 5 years ahead of you writing, well, you to let you know what life is like, and to put some things into perspective.

You’re probably wondering what life is like in 2015 – well, let me tell you. Yes, there are hover cars – no Twitter does not exist, Facebook, Google and Apple came together and now own the entire world, everyone wears silver suits like those 1960 space movies, and yes, Saved by the Bell reruns still come on TBS.

So all in all, you have a lot to look forward to. Future life is pretty sweet. Oh, and you also have lots of money, like, a lot a lot. And everyone loves you. Yes, that too.

As your year comes to a close and another year is on the horizon, here are a few things to think about and to remember – a few “reminders” from you slightly older and wiser self.

Make time for yourself. And above all, relax. You work too much, and haven’t REALLY relaxed in a long, long time. That needs to change. Trust me. Put the computer down, unplug, and go do something else. Recharge, refuel…it makes a huge difference.

Keep doing what you do. Keep up the hard work, but don’t stress about backing off and taking it easy more often.

Signed your silver-suit wearing, hover-car driving, still Saved-by-the-Bell-rerun-watching self, Matt.

      Haha, I’m pretty sure I could survive with ONLY TBS – at least through 2015.

    I love this Matt! I think if my future self gave me just one piece of advice she would say, “TRUST YOUR GUT.” I don’t do that enough and know I would be better off if I did :)

      Easier said than done sometimes, isn’t it? But yes, going with your instinct almost always pays off…Happy Holidays, Brooke!

      2015 may be a bit ambitious for hover cars, huh? :) Thanks, Krista and Happy Holidays to you!

    Great list, Matt.

    Also, I met Belding as well. He is super creepy and definitely ruined my love of Saved By the Bell – which is really too bad!
