An Open Letter to My Former Self (Part 1)

I wrote to myself last year. Addressed to the old me... on a cold January morning in 2015.

A time when I was at an all time low. 

My new years resolution? I was ready to quit…everything. 

I’d basically stopped…

Isn’t January the WORST time to start something? 

I’ll be honest…

Don't pick up poo...

Do NOT pick up the poo. Do not sniff the poo. And DEFINITELY do not pull the poo…

Remember that app from last year?

 

Faceapp? The one that made you look 20 years older? 

I’ve posted at the time but I wanna say again.... 

I totally look like a old BAMF right here haha! 

Seriously though. I don’t wanna look back in 20 years…
