Today is also the Back From The Future Blogfest, hosted by Suze of Subliminal Coffee, M. Pax and Nicki Elson.
We don't get to ride in the Delorean, but we do get a surprise from the future. . .
You're up before dawn on a Saturday when the doorbell rings. You haven't brewed your coffee so you wonder if you imagined the sound. Plonking the half-filled carafe in the sink, you go to the front door and cautiously swing it open. No one there. As you cast your eyes to the ground, you see a parcel addressed to you ... from you.
You scoop it up and haul it inside, sensing something legitimate despite the extreme oddness of the situation. Carefully, you pry it open. Inside is a shoebox -- sent from ten years in the future -- and it's filled with items you have sent yourself.
What's in it?
One winning lottery number and date for each upcoming year...
And the reminder that its not about the money, but what I can accomplish with it, the lives I can change.
And a challenge to do so...
What message would you send from the future to your past self?
Don't forget to say hi to the others who are taking part in the blogfest!
