I was asked to write a letter to myself of ten years ago for Day 4 of the Shortform Challenge.

Dear Self,

I don’t like to evaluate what I might have done differently. It always makes me feel bad about the path I took.

I will say that buying Tesla stock in large quantities and hanging onto it would be one great idea.

And keep running, maybe just a tad more than you did.

Own who you are — kind and caring, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. What’s that you say? You’re right, it’s an issue I’m still struggling with today.

No one gets things right all the time, so be proud of what you’ve done and don’t worry about the shots you’ve missed.

Dance on!
