Love Notes To Myself

by Scott Noelle

Ever wish you could go back in time and share the wisdom of your experience with your past self?

“If only I knew then what I know now...”

In your imagination, such time travel is possible and can be healing. But you can do it for real in reverse: share your present wisdom with your future self!

Here’s how:

  1. Write a bunch of short, inspiring “love notes” to yourself on small pieces of paper. Say things like “Love is the answer,” “All Is Well,” “Truth will set you free,” “Let go!” etc.
  2. Hide the notes in places where you’ll find them unexpectedly in the future — in a cookbook, your car’s glove box, a file folder, a coat pocket, etc.
  3. As you hide each one, hold the thought that you’ll find it at the precise moment when you’ll need to remember that bit of wisdom.

Your child(ren) can play this game, too, and you can also write love notes for each other. There’s no right or wrong way — just follow your heart.
