Future Authoring Letter

Letter Date: 26th January 2024

Hey stella,

Let me just start by saying thankyou for what you’ve done, because of you I’m now able too…
– have the freedom to work flexibly in job i really enjoy
– travel to amazing locations to explore really cool nature
– spend quality time with my partner, friends and family
– live in a home that i own and that feels like mine and suits my needs (sanctuary, calm, space to enjoy with the people I love)
The wisdom and discipline you showed has helped me to achieve…
– live in a house that is right for me and feels like home (space for books, space to gather, nature, quiet, connected to my people)
– international travel to amazing destinations (NZ, Mongolia, Scandinavia, Europe)
– having a family with stability that means we can live an enriching life, not just making ends meet including camping and hiking locally like I did as a kid
Because of what you learned and how I gained, I’ve been able to increase my impact. Here’s just some of what you’ve made possible:
– live in a house that is right for me and feels like home (space for books, space to gather, nature, quiet, connected to my people)
– international travel to amazing destinations (NZ, Mongolia, Scandinavia, Europe)
– having a family with stability that means we can live an enriching life, not just making ends meet including camping and hiking locally like I did as a kid

In case you were wondering if it’s all worth it, let me assure you that… 

– I feel content that I’ve been intentional in creating a life that brings me and the people around me joy.
– i feel secure that I’ve set myself up well and have the knowledge and skills to deal with challenges that arise
– i feel excited for what else we can do with life and the experiences we can have
I know you worked hard and made sacrifices to make the lifestyle I now live possible, so let me walk you through a typical day so that you know what’s head of you…
wake up on a super comfortable mattress, in my sanctuary of a house. I can see the trees outside my window. I get up and move my body, maybe a run, maybe yoga, maybe a hike but im not rushed to do it. I get to go to work, but on my terms and get to work on helping to solve problems in health policy that will improve peoples lives. I work with people i like and who inspire me to work hard. I connect with family or friends and then i go home to eat some delicious food, read and spend time with my partner. (maybe kids. if so, throw in being present with them and doing the things for and with them that make them fulfilled)
Lastly, I need you to know that…
I would be happy that I stopped waiting for things to happen and started living intentionally. That I made decisions even though they were scary because it got me closer to the life I want to live.
