To older Tatiana,
So, you made it! You’ll be 25 now, probably too busy to read a letter from your past self, but I think you should read it anyway. As I am writing this, 2019 is coming to a close. You somehow made it out – albeit with a few scratches and cuts, bruises and burns. But none of that is important right now! We made it! Since you’ll be old enough to drink, get yourself a beer or wine or champagne or something – whatever it is you like – to celebrate finishing the first 25 years of your life.
Of course, you couldn’t have done it alone. I have my strong support network of my friends, family and boyfriend. Are you still close with them all? Have you met new people? I don’t mind as long as they make you as happy as Thumper and your BFG make me now.
Have you got all your tattoos now? I really hope so, I can’t wait to get them done and I’m sure they look nice!
Are you finally able to be totally true to yourself? I’m trying to be currently so I hope that it’s all paid off and you’re doing what you love.
How did GCSEs go? Was prom as magical as you wanted when you were 7? What about A-Levels? Did you choose the right career path for you? Did I choose the right thing for you Tati? I’m so desperate to be a lawyer or journalist – just someone people will listen to. Do people listen to you now? I’m so ready to take on the world so is the world ready to take on you?
But most importantly, are you satisfied? Are you satisfied with the life you live? Are you satisfied with the life you chose? Are you satisfied with everything you’ve done?
I hope so, but if not, you still have a lot of time left on this earth – please spend it wisely!
That’s all, xo baby, Tati xoxo
