New Years Letters to Ourselves:

What do you want to tell yourself from the beginning of the year, and what do you want to tell yourself going into next year? Write two letters: 1. TO THE YOU of the past who has just survived this year. 2. To the you in the future that is going to be living in the next year

Think about what from 2019 do you want to bring into 2020 and what do you want to leave behind?
