Dear future me,

Dear myself, How are you? Do you have wet feet but miss the rain? Did you see some hurricanes? Do you miss your wintercoat? Did you make your trip to the NorthPole as planned when you were 20 years old? Maybe you’re already used to it …

If I want to read this message lying in my bed with my husband, close to each other because it’s cold and raining, I need to take action now. The message needs to be transmitted as well, which you did, I’m sure!  But now, I, and others, need to take action. My future husband is, I hope, doing the same. I hope he wants a green garden as well, rainy nights but dry feet.

Everything is a question mark…. we can’t predict everything but we can do everything to prevent the worst of happening.

Xxx,

Your 20 years old self,

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.
