Reflections on Life: A Letter From My 90 Year Old Self

Dear Self,

As I reflect back on my life, I realize that there were so many things that I worried about that, in the end, really didn’t matter. So many things that I focused on that took my attention away from what was truly important. As you sit here now, at 90 years old, I want to share with you some of the things that I have learned about what truly matters in life, and how to achieve the balance that you are looking for.

First and foremost, what matters most in life is the people that you love. The relationships that you have with your family and friends are what truly make life worth living. Take the time to cherish these relationships, and always make sure to let those around you know how much you love and appreciate them.

Secondly, don’t take life too seriously. There will be ups and downs, but at the end of the day, life is meant to be enjoyed. Take time to laugh, to enjoy the simple things, and to appreciate the beauty in the world around you.

Thirdly, always take care of yourself. You only get one body, and it is important to treat it well. Eat well and stay active. Take care of not only your physical health, but also your mental health. This will allow you to enjoy life to the fullest.

Lastly, don’t wait to live the life that you want. It is never too late to pursue your dreams, to try something new, or to take a chance. Life is too short to live with regret, so always be true to yourself, and never be afraid to take a risk.

As I look back on my life, I realize that achieving balance was not always easy. But I also know that it is never too late to make changes, to focus on what truly matters, and to create a life that is fulfilling and meaningful. So my advice to you, my dear self, is to always remember what truly matters in life, and to strive to live a life that is full of love, laughter, and happiness.

With love,

Your 90-year-old self

    As I move toward that goal of 90 I must say that I have tried to live that part of life. It gets more difficult as you age due to pain, death etc…
    A strong family is where it becomes easier to deal with. A loving spouse that understands the marriage vows and works through the trials of marriage.

    Great website that I hope all will see and try to understand in our countries time of change!
