This month I share a full letter that I wrote to my younger self, at the age of nine.  Thanks to Ellyn Spragins for creating the Letters To My Younger Self books, kits, and more!  This exercise was extremely therapeutic and I hope you give it a try! 


Dear Susan,

I know your thinking “why me?” “Why did they pick me out of all my friends to go into the Special Education classes? You were only nine years old and at the time, enjoying Mrs. Altman’s recording lesson that day.  Then, the guidance counselor came into the classroom and took you to her office. That’s when your life instantly changed, and believe it or not, for the better.

You’re feeling stupid, mad, alone, confused and helpless. Nobody cares how you feet or what you think about this new life in Special Ed.  Everyday you go into another classroom that none of your friends would ever be in. You don’t relate with the other kids at all. You sit in your seat and just work.  You barely speak or smile. You have one mission, and that was to get out and main streamed again.

You are so angry and frustrated that your focus is to prove them wrong and work hard to become mainstream and in classes with your friends again.  You’re unaware of all the skills your learning to survive and achieve in life.  You won’t realize it until you get into college, graduate, travel the world, and own your own business.

At the age of nine you are learning to take each day, one day at a time and breathe by breathe.  Susan, hang in there because you learn the ropes and achieve on many levels.

With love from your achieved, intelligent, older self…


Now write yours!
