A letter to my 60-year-old self


Dear 60-year-old Me

Hi! I know that you are doing rocking your old age. You have lived your life to the fullest and yet there is so much more that you want from life. You want to love yourself a little more. Do it! You grew up into a beautiful person that I always wanted you to be.

Soon, it’s going to time for you to relax. But I know that you aren’t going to relax. You are going to continue following your passion of learning new things. And I know what you are planning about next. Psychology. You will never be tired of it. All those stories that you learned from throughout your life, they make you want to explore. I would say that it’s time that you can handle it. You are so much more stronger than I am.

I am so proud of you for buying the cottage in the mountains of northern India. Look at that giant door? You have built up thousands of worlds behind it. I know I know… You are yet to peep into more than half of those worlds. The to-read list always has to be bigger than the read list. I don’t blame you for it.

Can you please stop being a procrastinator and complete that book? Let the world know this part your story.

Keep staying healthy!

Your 24-year-old self

    1. Thanks! 🙂 There was so much more that I wanted to say. But I really believe that I should keep my dreams to myself until I fulfil them because nazar lag jaati hai (evil eyes spoil it). :p
      PS: I just believe in this one superstition and nothing else 😀

      1. Logically, I don’t believe in superstition. But my silly mother instilled these stupid things in my subconscious, like if your nose itches, someone is going to call- I actually find myself thinking it, then reminding myself, hey you don’t believe this garbage.

      2. I may jokingly say who’s remembering me when I get Hiccups. But I don’t believe in it. No matter how much everybody around me believes in it

  1. I can imagine you in that beautiful cottage with the large welcoming door. Don’t worry ‘Humari Nazar lagne wali nahee hey’ (no evil eye from me). Its good to dream, it gives us hope and that’s one thing No One can take from you.

  2. A good one. You got all your dreams sorted. I also wish to publish one book.I don’t care if it sells. I will call myself “the New York Times best selling author” 😛

    And starting to read psychology after 60? Its possible. I have an uncle who studied for law after retiring from his job
