I love this one. Love it, love it, love it! Past Me is something I have given a lot of thought to. Having empathy for our younger selves, knowing that really and truly, most everything works out and we really are ok. How nice it would have been to know that back then.

Here's my link which I forgot to include in my first post and then deleted to include here. I'm still newb.

I found this very cathartic when I wrote it, especially forgiving my past self. The note i wrote to fufutre me i have also emailed my self, to recieve 6 years in the future, via http://www.futureme.org

The wonderful thing about blog prompts is that one is 'forced' (well, not really) to study things from a different point of view. Thanks.

After reading Stephen Levine’s book, “A Year to Live,” and discovering the concept of reconciliatory letters, Jules is in the process of sending letters like mad, both physically and via her words on the wind, to every entity animate or inanimate, that she has taken exception to. Her first letter is documented here, and this letter, concerning her wellbeing in the future, is documented here.

Good Afternoon. I'm writing this to tell you about a new blog that I have started, called Tell a Tale. It’s a platform where one gets to write on a prompt, and attach it with that weeks prompt here. It’s about writing stories. A Story on the prompt, normally. I would like to tell you about it and would request you to pass on the information to your fellow bloggers, provided you like it.

I would suggest you to visit the blog and check it out. If you like it, please pass the information. I would like you to take an active participation in the same and be present there visibly.

Thanks for reading this. I will be waiting to see you there in the Blog.

Thanks and regards,
Story Teller :)

the past is something i dont like to think about, a life lesson that zigged when it shouldve zagged. id like to think that, presently, im moving on and living above it.

theres been a lot of soul searching for me with some of these prompts, but this one was short and sweet.

I just stumbled across your wonderful prompt blog in a google search for writing prompts.

Still trying to find the link to subscribe, but definitely have your blog bookmarked, and will be back daily.

I'm in love with the inspiration here!
