Reverb 10, Day 21: Future Self

Over the month of December, I am taking part in Reverb 10, and the daily prompt for today from Jenny Blake is this:
Future self.
Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?)
The advice my future self would give my present self is very simple:

DO IT.

And now for the note to myself ten years ago. It is also very simple:
Dear Not-Yet-Schmutzie:

That drinking-too-much thing you struggle with and try to hide from the Palinode? You do eventually quit that, so stop beating yourself up about it and do something interesting.

Love,
Schmutzie
