Dear Olivia,

First of all, I hope you are healthy and happy now. Life has been pretty rough for you ever since you were 12. A lot can happen and change in 10 years, so I am hoping in these next 10 years, you are doing good. I hope you have a good job doing what you love. I know right now, thinking about what career path to go down is difficult. But I hope you are doing something that involves helping people, whether that be in healthcare or sports management. I hope you are financially stable and don’t stress about that. I also hope you will be married to the love of your life and have some kids. I hope you find the right man that will treat you right and do anything for you. I hope you are living somewhere you want to live, near the beach. I hope you have dogs and cute little orange kitties. I hope your family is healthy and doing well. I hope you have a cute little house and a life you have always dreamed of. I pray there are no more tragedies that you will go through because you have already been through so much at such a young age. I hope you are near your family, because family is the most important thing. I know you have been playing tennis ever since you were 6, and I know your tennis career is over now since college, but I hope you are still playing for fun and exercising a lot. I hope you still keep in touch with some of your best high school and college friends, and are continuing to make life long friendships. Also, it is okay if you have not achieved all of this, you have time, you are still young. Stop stressing. Just know I love you and you can always count on yourself to make the right decisions and choices. And I want to emphasize that I hope you are healthy and happy.

Love, 22 year old Olivia

For this writing assignment bank, I chose Your Hopes, Dreams, And Fears, which had a value of 3 stars. I had to write a letter to my future self about what I envision happening in these next 10 years. This was difficult to write, because I have always stressed about my future. I feel like with society you have to have it all together and there are “deadlines” people need to meet at certain ages. But I did enjoy writing this and just trying to have an idea of where I want to be in 10 years is good. I know I might not be able to achieve it all, but even if I accomplish some things, I am proud of myself.
