Dear Future Me (myself & my children),

Ah it is 2021.. 2020 was a very very very rough year for the world, our vulnerable communities, and personally I went through a lot as well. You see I pretty much fit under all that were impacted by past events. 2020 a lot happened, racial injustice was everywhere. Although it has always been, this time the world talked about it. You see personally I went through a lot bc I was suffering from intense headaches that I have self-diagnosed as a response to the evils of the world that have created vulnerable people. What do I mean? We live in a capitalist society where it is very hard to prioritize Mother Nature & our well being…its difficult to serve our communities while taking care of ourselves & it should not be this way. I have hope that the future generations will rise against the world’s human made structures that have led to where we are now..we don’t have to live this way! I know I have hope bc I believe I am doing my best to serve our communities while practicing self care to prepare myself to also serve the next generation (my children & their neighbors) to build a sustainable & just world. I want my children to know that life will not be easy..it was not for our ancestors. The privilege we will be living (bc I am committed to building a safe space for us all) will be a response to the work of our ancestors. Many have dreamt about living comfortably ..I know that is my dream. I hope that by 2050 I will be happy with the time I’ve been given in this beautiful world..I hope that I can make this space for you all as well. I want us all to live at peace with our environments & the people in our spaces. Thank you. Wait lol If you don’t have children I want you to know that is ok! I just hope you find peace within yourself & everyone in your life in 20..?

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.
