Don't Worry, Be Healthy

A letter to your younger self.

on April 9, 2012

If you could write a letter to your younger self, what would you say? Here is a beautiful example by Michael J. Fox.

Dear Michael,

When the time comes to chase your dreams, and it will, they may seem elusive; but know you won’t catch them all at once. Just one challenge at a time.

When success comes, and it will, don’t gobble it up—savor and share it, and it will last.

When love comes, and it will, don’t bury it in expectation and projection—be prepared to fall in love all over again every day.

When the unexpected and inconceivable intrudes on life, and it will, deal with life’s actual events—don’t obsess about perceived eventualities.
Relax—enjoy the ride.

–Michael J. Fox
50, actor and activist
