Back To The Feature Part IIII – Kris Gibbons

Letters to Your Younger Self

This week we hear from Kris Gibbons who blogs at Thank you Kris for getting involved.

Kris at 33

Dear Younger skinnier Kris,

Its me the older wiser you from the future. Your 33 now and the year is 2016. Sadly we aren’t all riding around on hover crafts and cars aren’t quite at the flying stage yet (although manufacturers are working on cars that drive themselves – Mind Blown). I’m reaching out to you through this amazing invention called the Internet, listen closely I have some things to share.

Your 18 years of age now which means your still living at home STAY THERE as long as you possibly can and do the really boring thing of save save save. I know Mum and living at home drives you mad but seriously just stick it out. Oh and stop with the attitude, nobodies impressed and it certainly will not win you any friends.

  • You will have started working at Zens at the weekend, all I can say is GET OUT. Go get some ambition and get a proper better paying job. Working in a nightclub isn’t all its cracked up to be.
  • Make sure you still get your job in The Kings your going to meet your future husband there. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR FUTURE.
  • Stop stressing about where your place in the world should be, you will find it eventually as a mummy to your 2 beautiful sons(that’s right you give birth twice and it hurts like a mutha)
  • Don’t worry about how you look or what others think. As long as you are kind, honest and genuine you really will not go wrong in life. Looks fade.

Most of all just be happy. Live your life to the full. Go see the world, dance in the rain and generally don’t give a crap.

There’s going to be plenty of time to be a grown up trust me.

Lots of love

Kris (you from the future)
