Back From The Future Blogfest...

 
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!

Not to be so self-conscious. It was quite debilitating when I was a teenager.

Oh, and the winning lotto number!

Hello from the blog hop!

I've come back from the future, but I think I'm still a day late...oh well, those darn flux capacitors can be testy at times...sorry :)

Great entry and I liked the simplicity. They say money is the root of all evil, but in the right hands, it can work wonders.

I like how the future you challenges you to do something positive with the cash.

If I sent myself a note, I think I'd let me know I'm still breathing, so I'd know I have at least ten more years to do something good with my life. Or maybe I'd just tell me a good joke.

Better watch out with the winning lottery ticket. The Time Cops are liable to come after you.

The challenge to do so - love that. Because of course we all want to change lives and truly help others, but wanting and doing are entirely different things.

Thanks for joining the hop!
