Victoria Beckham has given her future self some advice on keeping her marriage thriving and her career on track in a candid letter.
The Spice Girl turned fashion designer wrote ‘an honest letter to her future self,’ for Vogue.co.uk, three years after composing a letter for her 18-year-old self.
The letter reveals the moment Victoria, 45, knew she had lost her passion for performing and decided to pursue her fashion career, as well as how the global pandemic has helped her refocus on family.
Dear me: Victoria Beckham has given her future self some advice on keeping her marriage thriving and her career on track in a candid letter
‘As it’s a new year, I wanted to take a moment to reflect and pen a letter to my older and **fingers crossed** wiser Future Self,’ she began the letter.
Reflecting on the challenges of the past year, the mother-of-four continued: ‘2020 and 2021 are in the distant past, but you’ve carried the lessons of that time with you. I hope you are reading this on a beach, surrounded by all the people you love!’
‘Give them huge hugs for me (wait, am I the shortest in the family now?!). You’ve experienced more togetherness with your family than you ever imagined possible (all 293 days of it and counting), and it is something you’ll no doubt cherish.’
She also touched on the challenges of continuing her business during the pandemic, admitting: ‘Building a fashion and beauty business requires passion, tenacity, fearlessness; it’s not for the faint-hearted. Building one in a pandemic was nearly impossible.’

Victoria then detailed a ‘life-changing moment’ from her past – watching family friend Sir Elton John on stage a number of years ago and noticing his passion for performing,
‘You realised this was like oxygen for him. It was a life-changing moment — while singing and dancing was fun for you, it wasn’t your passion. That day, you started your quest to uncover your own dreams,’ she wrote.
‘It was time to step away from being a Spice Girl. I know you are still reinventing yourself, taking on new challenges, and ignoring the naysayers. You always look beyond the conventional wisdom to pave your own path.’
And after finding her passion for fashion and beauty, the ex Spice Girl admitted it’s helped her in her marriage too, revealing ‘putting on a great dress and smoky eye’ during lockdown is her way of ‘surprising’ husband David.

‘Preserving that bit of mystique is always helpful after almost 22 years of marriage,’ she told her future self.
Victoria ended her letter with a witty P.S, asking: ‘Please tell me you’re still wearing heels?’
Victoria has split her time over the past year between her family’s country home in the Cotswolds and their London home, as the global pandemic halted her busy lifestyle.
The designer, husband David and their four children are currently enjoying some time in Miami, where they rang in the New Year with son Brooklyn’s fiancée Nicola Peltz and her family.
The famous couple are reported to have flown to the US by private jet with their offspring, allegedly celebrating the new year at the £30 million mansion of actress Nicola’s family.
On their trip, a source claimed David flew to Florida with his family because he has business there with his footballer team, Inter Miami.

The source told The Sun: ‘David and Victoria had been planning this trip for months. David needed to be in Miami in January on Inter Miami duty because it’s the start of the MLS pre-season, and he is helping recruit new players.
‘He also hadn’t been able to get there since last March due to restrictions so it was an important trip.
‘After spending Christmas morning at their Cotwsolds home – which was Tier Two at the time – they all took Covid Tests before safely flying from a local airport via private jet to Florida.
‘Once in the US, Brooklyn was reunited with Nicola, and the two families spent some lovely quality time together. Unfortunately, and in a scenario beyond their control, since being Stateside, lockdown came into effect.
As a result of the latest lockdown, which was announced since the New Year, the publication is reporting that the stars plan to homeschool their children remotely in the US for the next several weeks. MailOnline contacted representatives for David and Victoria for comment at the time.
