Dear Me

This is a question I read sometime ago: If you could sent a letter to yourself aged 16, what would you write in it? Today, August 30, 2012 date in which I celebrate 16 years of living in Bolivia,I’ve decided to take the challenge.

A LETTER TO MY 16-YEAR-OLD SELF

Dear me,

Wish I could tell you that you will be able to write and explain things in a more lengthy and detailed manner, but after 30 years you are still a straightforward, few-words, go-to-the-point kind of guy; so this letter will be short, as usual, but do not worry, you will learn to force yourself to be less laconic. Even though now you think your shyness will be an obstacle, you will do and carry out many things that will make other people think you’re an adventurous extrovert. Your desire to study abroad will come true and even if you now think that God has not given you many talents, He will use you in a place prepared just for you in another country. You will be a teacher and will speak in front of many people with a strong voice. You will stop regretting being weak for your weakness will be the key to find your strength in the Lord and the means by which you get  more understanding and can be of encouragement to students like yourself. Just wait, in a few years being thin will be more popular. You will see that with every year things do get better even though the outer man is wasting away, the inner man is being renewed day by day and in the end you will conclude with thanksgiving in your heart that you wouldn’t want to have it any other way.

“Be strong and of good courage for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go”

sincerely,

Me.

PS.

Cyber communication as you see it in the fiction futuristic movies will be real and in the not- too- far future!

  1. Nunca habia pensado escribirme una carta a mi mismo cuando tuviera 16… sería muy buen ejercicio

  2. Muy original, me ha gustado mucho lo que escribiste. Me hubiera gustado recibir una carta de mi misma también para evitarme algunas tristezas y temores y para darme ánimos.
    Que con el paso del tiempo nos vayamos convirtiendo en una version corregida, mejorada y aumentada de nosotros mismos.
