i found this lovely print from minna may over the weekend and i was captivated by it. captivated by the thought that i can do something today that my future self will thank me for. i can think of many times when my future self didn’t want to thank me – it said “why didn’t i do this yesterday when i had time” OR “i should have done the dishes already now they smell bad” OR “what was i thinking?” OR “why didn’t i study for that test”… the list goes on.
what would it be like to look back and thank myself? i sit here now and i can also think of many times that if i had thought about it, i would thank myself like “i am so glad i finished this project before i left for vacation” OR “i am glad i spent time in the Word this past week” OR “i am glad i decided not to eat that cheese pizza because now my tummy is happy and not gassy (for us lactards)” but i have never intentionally thought this phrase & i am in love with the idea.
