This is a style preference and probably depends on why you are writing a letter to yourself.  You can write in the first, second, or third person.  If this is for a school assignment, your instructor may have indicated which type of narrative you should write.  If not, then you can pick whichever way you feel works best for your writing.


First person:

I am very proud of my accomplishments.


Second person:
You should be very proud of your accomplishments.


Third person:

Denice was very proud of her accomplishments.
