GMP invites you to participate in a multi-media experience where you can share anything you want with your younger self.
Do you have a childhood moment that stands out in your mind? Do you remember the greatest fear you had? Your first crush? Your first broken heart? Coming out? Perhaps you remember the loss of your first pet or first family member.
Perhaps an unimaginable experience is flashing before your eyes as you read this.
Maybe you remember your first time at bat or the first time you were affected by national or world news. You might recall your first friend, a scuffle on the playground, or the hardest test you ever took. Maybe you remember your first dream come true or your deepest disappointment.
At those times, you didn’t know that you were building the cornerstones of your life but you know that now.
If you could write a letter to your younger self, what would you share?
Are you a man of few words? What would you tweet?
Are you comfortable in front of a video screen and wish to speak directly to your younger self?
Maybe you have one simple image that would say everything to your younger self that you’d want to.
The Good Men Project invites you to join us in a multi-media experience. We invite you to choose the expression most comfortable for you and submit your message to your younger self.
Wish to write a letter? Submit your letter to Heather Gray at [email protected] and it might be featured on our site. Feel free to include a picture of your younger self, too!
Prefer to tweet? Stay tuned. We’re going to be tweeting out “If you could tweet one thing to your younger self, what would it be?” Tweet @goodmenproject using #GMPTB with your responses. We’ll be featuring your tweets in multi-media presentations.
Want the artistic expression and instant satisfaction of Instagram? Find us there at GoodMenProject and share your pictorial message using #GMPTB.
Looking to speak directly to your younger self on video? We invite you to share a video message. You can send your .mp4 or .mov to [email protected] If you’d like to be a part of a multi-contributor video but don’t have video capabilities, please send in a still photo of yourself holding a younger photo of yourself and we will create artwork from that. Email Lisa with any questions or concerns.
Not old enough to have a younger self? Write a letter to yourself in the future, and send it to Scott Heydt, Senior Editor of the GMP Guyhood section, at scott
You’re also welcome, of course, to share your comments and thoughts below in our comment section.
We look forward to learning from, laughing with, and joining with your important messages. No doubt the message you share today will help a young man experiencing that very thing.
