If you planted a time capsule right now of your life to be opened in 20 years, what would be in it?
Twenty years from now I’d like to look back in my life with smile and pride to what I have been through. If I were to plant my time capsule now, the following are the things I’ll include that would surely make me smile, laugh, and maybe shed a tear when that time comes.
- Let’s start with a baby picture. My Mama once told me that as you grow old, you will always go back to the figure you had when you’re young. I was a chubby child. 20 years from now, I’d like to see if that’s true, though I think I am getting chubbier already. Let’s see how chubby will I get in 20 more years.
- The rectangular box I have full of letters – handwritten letters from friends in High School, birthday cards from college, and sticky notes from colleagues. Whenever I am looking for something, I would always end up not finding what I was looking for. Instead I would always find this rectangular box filled with letters in stationery papers, sticky notes, etc. These letters and notes always make me smile and laugh.
- The Time Keeper book by Mitch Albom which is a birthday gift from my friend, Patty.
- The notebook where I used to draw while participating in the 30-Day Drawing Challenge. This notebook also contains doodles of my friends in the office.
- I’m thinking whether or not to put in my wooden rosary bracelet because I never take it off, except when taking the shower. So, I guess, I’ll just leave my ring with a cross in it.
- One of my guitars – the one with the LOVE bumper sticker on which I bought from Jason Mraz’s online store. After 20 years, I’ll see if I can still play a song.
- My copy of ‘Love Is A Four Letter Word’ album by Jason Mraz.
- And last but not the least, a hard copy of my favorite posts I blogged about here in my WordPress account. I’d like to read them again after 20 years and be proud of everything I have written and been through.
I do not know how my life will turn out in 20 years. I do not even know if I will still be here by the time I am supposed to open my time capsule. If that time comes and I won’t be here to open this time capsule, it would just be nice to have somebody open it up and see the life I have lived 20 years ago through the things I kept in it.
