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

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

Pick up your trash wherever you go!

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.
