I hope you are keeping well. We already made a pact; we will soldier on, no matter what. While we do so, please, let’s make sure we are checking on each other, helping those who need us during these tough times. A simple text message each morning “What can I do for you today?” or “Is there anything I can do for you today?” will go a long way.
Do you remember your younger years? What emotions do they spark in you? Do you remember those days with nostalgia or with a sense of regret? Maybe you are not of age yet and so; your younger years aren’t far away. Perhaps, you are too old to remember those years, whichever the case……..we all have a past.
This is the second time I am receiving a request to write to my younger self. Sometime last year, a features writer in a Kenyan newspaper reached out to me and asked me to write a letter to my 21-year old. I did. Last week, an upcoming blogger, 25-year-old; Jael Keya reached out to me, asking me to write a letter to my 25-year-old.
This is how you know that you are getting old and that through sharing your story, you might help young boys’ and girls’ live a life better than the one you had.
A few pointers in your twenties include;
- Be kind to yourself.
- Celebrate the little things in life.
- Embrace life challenges and setbacks with resilience.
- Surround yourself with people who love and treasure you.
- Pause and breath, it’s never that serious.
- Smile and find reasons to laugh some more.
- Give without expecting anything in return.
- Travel the less travelled path.
- Embrace failure and be ready to fail spectacularly.
So here we go. This is my story as a 25-year-old as published on Jael Keya’s blog- https://unveilblog.wordpress.com/category/dear-younger-me/
