Dear Uche! When you were a kid the future was different. A lot of things were thought and said but the truth is that the world is constantly changing.
Every seconds, everyday there is an end of today, raring and looking up for tomorrow, with little or no ambition or better still in good stead great ambition.
Amidst all you have got to bear this in mind that tomorrow is just a dream away and that’s why you have got to buckle up to make that dream a reality.
Because the journey to success is not without road blocks, detours and sometimes unforeseen ditches. Your desire for achievement should be stronger than all obstacles along the way!
Words of wisdom and encouragement are what lightens our mood. It help us find strength when we are about shutting down or when our energy is wanning.
As I pick up my pen to write this letter this morning to my younger self (PT 2), today being my birthday. With the mind of going back in time and give my younger self a little bit of advice , encouragement and wisdom from my older and wiser self.
In this letter I would be saying things I think my younger self would need to hear as a reassurance that I can still work with change and be better and also would be alright as I walk through the journey of life.
Now, I have to ask myself again. Do you feel you could have done better from your past? Do you feel you could change something from your past. Have the thought of your younger self crossed your mind and you vehemently wish you could ever go back in time and tell your younger self something? O yes, I do, so follow me let’s ride together.
DEAR YOUNGER SELF,
Guess what? It’s me! Yeah ,you heard me right! Is me, I mean real you! Not you in the past. It’s you now in the present trying to talk to you ,about things to help you work and point in the right direction in the future you.
You know time separates the past, present and the future. I really can’t tell you much about the future, because of the whole time paradox thing, but I can give you some advice so open up your heart and put your ears down to the grindstone and listen.
Now its me again, literally sitting beside me (in my juvenile years), like a father does to his son, having seen and tasted the bitter and sweet pills of life, spilling out the content of my bosom to my younger self, telling him son,.. “Those who hunger would get fed ,how, the issue is they will get fed with what they hunger for.
Just like papa talking to his son, please listen to the voice and learn. You have got to hunger and thirst for the right things and make the world a better place with love for humanity.
This is a letter to be woke, and not rest on your laurels, it’s a letter to be prepared. Because as you get older and stronger you will see and experience some uncomfortable things.
