I hope you’ve got it all figured out by now because while writing this, my head is all over the place. I’ve always known what I wanted and I sincerely hope you have at least tried to make sure that the dreams and hopes you’ve dreamt of are no longer just a dream or just a hope that you’re holding on to.
I have great plans for you, future me. But I’m afraid you won’t realize that. I’m scared that you don't have enough faith in yourself to realize what you are capable of doing. Yes, you might not be the first person to commit to something, to make something happen or to start anything. But, when you’ve set your mind to something you go all in, you put every little ounce of passion, time and hard work into it. You nurture it, you make sure nobody gets in the way. But the best part is the desire and fire that shines through you. That side of you shines brighter than the sun my friend.
I’m certain you know all of this. And I’m also certain that you know about the big dark cloud you carry along with you as I watch you grow. I truly believe that, that cloud is the main reason why you are so scared of getting out of your shell and letting the world see your true colors. You’ve always been a great advisor but man you really suck at taking our own advice!
You’ve put your fears, dreams, hopes, ambitions, plans and ideas into this one big cloud. And I’m pretty sure you keep stuffing that cloud as you read this, if not great, but if you are, then shame on you. Now tell me, what are you waiting for!? What’s all of the stuffing going to do? Because it sure as hell not helping you or solving anything for you. If you’re waiting for a new Big Ben to happen, forget it! You can’t expect that after the big explosion everything will fall into place. Life doesn’t work that way. I taught you better than that.
