Dear, 16 Year Old Me

Dear Shubhi,

Hello there! It’s me! You ! Us!

I am writing to you from the future. I am now 25 years old and it feels great here. You want to know how I am doing ? Well I have a great job, and am happily married too, just like you wanted!

Oh, I have a spoiler for you! You would go to Disneyland before you turn 25!!!! Yayieeeee… Oh it would be your life’s best experience till date, I bet you. And guess what??? You are going to travel a lot and see new places, all by yourself !! …Ok Ok, I should not give you any more spoilers now, really !!! I ll let you discover your adventures yourself!

I dont want to give you too much gyan – that’s not how we are , right? So I realise how hard you are working day and night to get good marks in board exams. Believe me, it ll be all worth it. You are going to do a fantabulous job in college, so have faith on your self and work very hard. Stop worrying about the opinion of others and be yourself. Everythng is not going to be hunky-dory, of course. You are going to face a ton of challenges. Stick to what resonates. Follow the path your heart feels is the right one. And Oh! if you make a mistake, dont shed your crocodile tears right away. I wish I knew this earlier, I would have wasted less energy contemplating over my mistakes then. Chose courage over fear and dont fear from mistakes. People will say mean and hurtful things to you. You might hurt someone too. When you do, dont be afraid to apologize. And lastly, Happiness is the key to success. Keep yourself jolly, carefree and always be adventurous. Love yourself and enjoy what you do!
Love,

Your Older You!

Shubhi
