From Our Readers: A Letter For My Future Self
Dear Me 2.0,
Do you still remember the days when you’re enjoying a Disney movie and you also dreamt of your own fairytale? Do you still remember how you fangirled over One Direction and LA Aguinaldo? Do you still remember everything that brought you to where you are now?
By the time you are reading this I have no idea where you are, how you've been, and who you're with. You might be travelling another country, you might be busy with your dream job, you might be with your very own Prince Charming, no one knows but one thing is for sure, 'still a free spirit with a wild heart. You go for what you want and you stand up for what is right.
I know for a fact that I am in no position to give you an advice because I'm pretty sure that you're a lot wiser than me. But let me tell you this, always put in mind what mommy always use to tell me... well, us. Always remember that, (1) your self-worth is something that you must always treasure, (2) don't let anyone rob you of your chance for happiness, and (3) know that no matter what happens in your life, your family will always be by your side.
If there is something that you should bring as you age, those are mommy's words of wisdom. Do not forget that if you live by these rules, you will be where destiny planned you to be at. But do not forget your rules as well, be fearless and live life with no regrets.
Be fearless and live life with no regrets
Your life isn't as full of rainbows and smiles as you have dreamed it would be. You might have fallen a few times while you're walking down your bumpy journey but what's important is that you were able to learn and have fun at the same time. Those mistakes completes your individuality and I'm pretty sure those things contributed in making yourself a better person, and that is as equally important as mommy’s golden words.
So, me of tomorrow, continue on listening to the little voices inside your head, march to your own cadence, and always follow your heart no matter where it would lead you.
All the Love,
