Kim Kardashian's Letter to Her Future Self


As the author of new book "Selfish," the star of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," the wife of Kanye West, the self-deemed "queen of contouring," and a (confirmed!) pregnant mother, it's no wonder why Kim Kardashian West is the covergirl for Glamour's July issue.

The 34-year old confesses that she's finally living the life she wants. Contrary to her life even just a few years ago, Kim enjoys a bit more privacy these days. In her interview with Glamour, she said:

"I used to enjoy the spotlight. If I had a day off from filming, I didn't know what to do. Now I enjoy my family time so much, there is this sense of, If it all went away, and I was just a mom, I would love my life."


We don't see it all going away anytime soon. However, due to her invigorating sense of privacy, we no longer feel like we know everything about the pop-culture icon. That's why we were so excited to watch this new exclusive video in which she addresses her future self, 10 years from now.

Looking into Kim's future has us considering her past. We can't believe how much her life has changed in the past 10 years now that the star has shot her 10th season of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." She's gone from colorful and highly accessorized styles that fit her loud personality to a sexy and clean look perfect for the vibrant yet matured mom (and mom-to-be!).

One thing that hasn't changed in the past 10 years is Kim's incredible body. In the video, she tells herself to enjoy her body, showing just how much she values and appreciates her youth. She says:

"When it comes to how you feel about your body, remember to be kind to yourself and enjoy how you look now, because you're not getting any younger."


She never hesitates to show off those defining curves, and we don't blame her. We imagine Kim walking the red carpet in skin-tight couture looking sexy as ever 10 years from now.

Kim also discusses her daughter, North, in the letter to her future self. She tells herself to be patient with baby North, who will be a pre-teen by that time! ​She says:

"Since North is now 12, I hope you remember that pre-teens are going through a lot. I know Junior High is really tough. So remember to have a lot of patience."


Kim fully expects North to go through the same identity crises, drama, and attitudinal experiments common to most middle school girls. It can't be easy going through that while living in the Hollywood spotlight. However, we expect North to learn from her experiences and grow into a family-oriented, self-aware, and happy young woman just as Kim did.

Most importantly, Kim tells her future self to stay positive and ignore the haters. People may criticize the star and disagree with her antics, but looking back it's clear that Kim has remained true to herself throughout the past 10 years in the limelight. She still calls her mom every day, she still aspires to stay tan all year, she still pokes fun at her sisters sometimes, and she still values family and love above all else.

To answer one of the most crucial questions you ask yourself in the video, Kim Kardashian West, you will always remain "on fleek." We can't wait to see where you are in 2025!
