The resurrection of “Letter to Thyself”

To the 15 people who entrusted me with “their letter”, I hope you have safely received the wonderful words you have written to yourself by now. I hope it was a good experience for you guys. And for those who did the exercise at their own privacy, I hope you all enjoy it too.

For those who are unaware, I wrote about an exercise of wonderful self-reflection. Basically, you write a letter to yourself. I am more than glad to be of service once again this year should anyone wants to do another round of such self reflection or perhaps, doing it for the first time.

Again, just write down your thoughts, aspirations, hatred, ambition… basically anything and put it in a password-protected word document and send it to me at zewtness(at)gmail.com and I will send the letter back to you. By the time, I hope you would have forgotten about the letter already.

Read
here for a detailed explanation.

For this time round though, I plan to do something different. You shall have a choice to decide on how long before I send the letter back to you. You may want me to keep your letter for 5 years. So long as I am alive, I will be more than glad to do it for you. And come next year, I will not be writing an entry like this to “remind” people.

Just don’t forget your password ok…!

On a related note… AZAIG turns 2 !!!!!!
And…. Happy Anniversary to Mr. and Mrs. Zewt… !

Start writing everyone!

Lifong said...

Happy Anniversary!
Wow, I only started reading AZAIG not for long and so I clicked that old post you've linked and read bout the self-reflection exercise. Not only that I realise how to go bout the letter, but also (how funny!)I sorta see a change in your style, in the way you deliver your words in your blog...
Erm, it's like you're this dude who's just graduated from uni stepping into the working world (feeling very hopeful in things, naive and so on), but now Wolla you are Mr.Zewt - witty and whacky.
LOL, Happy Anniversary again!

sochews said...

Wow, great idea. You might get one from me soon.. :)

HappySurfer said...

Hope all's good on ur end!

gina said...

Happy anniversary! Hoping for more "zewtness" from you!

Also, I think it's really a wonderful thing you have done for strangers by entrusting yourself for keeping the letters. I bet it would make people feel so much better about themselves, some probably laughed at their silliness! :D

jam said...
