Dear me,

I’m just eighteen now and I feel insecure about many things in my life: my body, my character, my choices and especially my future. I’m not sure who I’m going to be in ten, twenty or even thirty years from now. Which path is the right one? No idea. I’m certain, however, that I’d like to find love one day and make it last. As you probably remember, I’ve never found love before and I’m looking forward to discovering the beauty and the joy of it. I’d love to have children and a fullfilling job that makes me happy.I hope you will have travelled a bit around the globe by then, as you’ve always dreamt. I hope that the Coronavirus pandemic will end soon, in order to go back to our ordinary life. We already know that climate change is an urgent issue and I hope that by 2050 we will have fulfilled our duties, in order to make the Earth a better place. I believe in humankind and in its conscience. We may have just enough time to prevent certain catastrophes, I hope we’ll do a good job.
I hope that throughout your life you’ve always been yourself, the genuine, funny and messy Anita. I’d love to know that by then you will have joined an amazing gospel choir and took theatre lessons. I hope you’ve improved your cooking skills and become a skilled pastry chef.
Best wishes for the future,
always me

More Messages to the Future

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear love,

The world is facing some serious crises right now as Viral pandemic and war situation between Ukraine and Russia.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

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

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.

 

To anyone who has heard my music,

I promise to care about the planet.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.
