My Year Ago Self

By Tiffany A. Dedeaux

‘I’m mad at my year-ago-Self!’ someone recently said to me. They were upset because they started using an old device they haven’t used in a year and didn’t realize the alarm was set for some before-the-sun-rises time. I thought this was a fun way to say and think of the things we do that catch us unawares. I have been reflecting a bit on what has happened in my life in the last year because Memorial Day marked a transition that rooted me full-time in Whatcom County. I am not mad at my year-ago-self because I did what I had to do. Some parts of this last year were hard (the physical labor of moving in and out of houses), some were worth celebrating (spend more time with loved ones and outdoors).

Think back to this time last year. What were you doing? Thinking? Planning? Talk to your year-ago-self and let them know what you’ve learned and what you’re grateful for about these last few seasons of life. Next, stop and consider your Future Self. Ask what you want to ask, what you’d like to know, and see what answers you provide!

NOTE TO SELF: double-check your alarm
