A few years from now, I expect you would have made many more mistakes than you already have. I know for sure you would still be your very inquisitive self because nothing has kept you from that in the past and I know you’ve been through a lot already.
You will find true love and settle down. Eventually you would have enough money to live well. How do I know? Well, you never stop talking and thinking about making money! Also, you’re a very industrious woman and it’s only a matter of time before all your hard work pays off (it always does).
You will become a mother to many – not only to your biological offspring – but to others who will seek you out to find out how you survived these years. You would take them under your wing, feed them knowledge and they would never remain the same.
Life is sometimes hard, but you will overcome being shy and afraid. You will come to truly appreciate that we all die but once. Dying a second time is overkill (LOL)! You will become more daring: speaking up for what is right, fighting for justice and defending the oppressed.
You will stop worrying about money because you will have plenty of it. You have seen, you have heard and you will conquer. In dark times, you will remember and hold on to the God you’ve served all your life. You will remember to be strong and that you are a survivor. You will not be a quitter. You will survive whatever life throws at you.
When things aren’t rosy, you will stay strong. Remember that in humility, we find peace. In abundance, we discover who we are and plant for the time when darkness shall fall again. You will remember to sow the good seed in the life of all who cross your path.
And years from now, when I remember to visit you again, when I look upon you and read the words which you have written for me today, it would be with smiles upon a wrinkled face that says:
“You have been true to yourself all your life. You have been an amazing and wonderful person. You have spent your life well. You took the chance that has been given to you as a human being; and it was worth the shot.”
If you had to write a note to your future self, what would you say?
