Growing up, I low-key wished I’d meet a fortune teller or a psychic that would tell me about my life what to do and what not to do. To make it even a lot easier I’d pray that God would come down and talk to me in person.
Imagine you could go back in time, there will be a lot of things you’d want to change or not? Things you wish you could have done differently? experiences you wish you could relive again.
A Letter To My Younger Self.
I have been postponing writing this to you because I didn’t think I had the right words to say. This is a letter from me to you. I think of you every day. Basically, this is a love letter from the future. Nobody knows you as much as I know you. If I could see you now, I’d give you the biggest hug and tell you “everything will be fine”.
You Stoop To Conquer, I know it feels like it won’t get better but it really does get better, I promise. I remember asking someone if it does get better or if we just get used to it. Life doesn’t always get easier but we get better.
I know you have never been a fan of school, I know how you feel everything is so easy and the only thing that is hard is school, the struggles with maths and all, I know you just want to get it over with but guess what? The consistency and effort paid off.🎉🎊
I know how much you love love but baby it’s a lot different from the movies and the books, the unrealistic expectations🤦🏾♀️ you’ll only get yourself hurt. So please dear… A lot of things take time, if it’s meant to be, it will happen.
Learn to expect, not to doubt. But you know, expectations itself bring doubts. Rather try ‘hoping’. You’ll start seeing possibilities. It need not happen. But if it comes true, you’ll be overwhelmed with happiness. – Georgina Smith
People come and go, there’s really nothing you can do about it, it’s just life, don’t beat yourself about it. I know you feel you’re unlucky with friends but you are not. You’ll eventually meet people who’d turn out to be amazing friends to you and be the best support system too 💛
Eyi, I want you to enjoy every moment, you’ll never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory, celebrate the little wins and find joy in the little things.
Adulthood can really be something 😖
Love yourself and everything that comes with it, it’s always easier said yeah, I know you feel a bit insecure about your body, you might just have to get used to it, it’s not going to change at least not from where I’m seeing it, so getting multivitamins and stuff, please dear rest, you’re wasting our money 😆
More than anything please have confidence in yourself, you’re almost always right.
P.S love your skin Eyiii, I can write an epistle on this, it’s perfect (expensive chocolate🍫) don’t be afraid of colours too. Your clothes, hair, shoes, it doesn’t have to be black all the time.
”My skin absorbs the sun rays and my hair defies gravity. You can’t tell me I’m not magical” – unknown
P.ss The talent you never thought you had or paid attention too, what I’ll tell you is all the newspapers, books, comics we read then, is paying off now👏🏾
We don’t have it all together yet, but one thing I can say is there’s progress if nothing at all I’m proud of you.
A work in progress. And the possibilities are endless – Elizabeth Eulberg
Here’s to so many more magic as they come ✨🥂
I’ll write you a letter again soon in like 2/3years’ time or less.
I love you Eyilayo, Forever and Always ❤️ You’re Loved, You’re Worthy and You’re More Than Enough. ✨
Xoxo – Eyilayo.
