This future you remembers what you’re going through right now. They remember even when you first called upon them for counsel. Because they know what you’re going through they will speak to you with love, compassion and authority. You’ll be reminded that your sufferings are not permanent and your successes last only a moment in time. As much as you will be encouraged you to work toward your dreams, they will tell you how important the small things are. “There is value in taking your time, enjoying the moment and showing gratitude” They will tell you.

It is then, your future self will lean close, put their arm around you and with your foreheads touching, tell you how important you have been for them. “All sadness is temporary. So is all happiness.
