As we look ahead to a new year of new hopes and new experiences, Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard is looking back to his 8-year-old self.

In a post to Instagram Tyler shared a letter he wrote to himself while he was doing a meditation exercise a few months ago.

“While I was at @onsiteworkshops a few months back I wrote a letter to my younger self after doing a meditation exercise that led me to seeing my 8 year old self and having a convo with him. This was a super cool experience they opened my eyes to so much. After I wrote it, I gave it to our group leader and she said they would mail it to our house in a few months, after all the emotional highs of onsite wore off. Well it showed up today and was a much needed reminder. I loved reading this. Y’all enjoy.”

Onsite is based outside of Nashville, Tennessee and according to the organization’s website, Onsite provides a safe, loving, family environment where guests can break the cycles that hold them back and rediscover themselves and their relationships.

Tyler’s letter has him seeing himself as an eight-year-old boy and relating to his love of people he surrounds himself.with.

“Dear little T-Hubb,”

It was great to see you and spend some time with you today” Tyler begins the letter.  “It was refreshing and inspiring to see you playing without a care in the world. Take that back, you did have cares which looked a lot like where is the next fishing hole, how will you build your next tree house, or bike ramp. It’s amazing to think how what I care about these days have changed and how much more I seem to care or worry about.  I could see how much love you had for your friends & the people around you. I can really relate to you because I still feel that today.” 

He goes on to share some advice. “If I could, I would like to offer some advice. Keep and hold onto that childlike energy and imagination. Continue to play always, even when work becomes an important part of your life. Never let work become the most important. Always remember WHO you are and don’t put to much importance on WHAT you are. You are loved. – Adult T-Hubb.”
