In this fast-paced world, too often we don’t take the time to stop and reflect on our lives and the direction it is taking, whether personally or professionally. Are we actively participating in and achieving the goals we set for ourselves or just being carried along by the business of life? Self-reflection is a means to observe and analyze yourself, to help you grow as a person.
Maybe you’re in the middle of a big career change and have a lot of hopes and dreams, as well as fears and uncertainties, for the next few years. Creating messages to send to your future self can be a cathartic way to get all those thoughts down in a space where you can reflect on them in a few months time. It can be motivating to receive a message from yourself in the past, encouraging you to push on with your dreams, even if life has gotten hard. It can also be the motivation you need to get back on track in pursing those goals.
Maybe it’s not something as life changing as moving jobs but more of a reminder to your future self to slow down and enjoy the present. You can create messages to be sent every December 1, to remind yourself to not get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays but to slow down and enjoy family.
You can create messages to yourself to keep up the motivation to finish that 5k you’ve been training for, or the sewing project you’ve been meaning to finish.
With PipPip, creating messages doesn’t have to be only for life-changing events, but also for quiet moments of self-reflection, daily encouragement, or even just as a reminder of where you are in this moment.
