10 lessons over 10 years 👧🏻
A letter to myself :)
I turned 25 on July 30th, 2021.
About a year ago, on September 30th, 2020, I began writing an article to capture some of the lessons I would teach my younger self should traveling back in time achieve fruition in my lifetime.
Below is a letter I wrote to my 15-year-old self to share the 10 lessons I would teach her if I could meet her.
10 Lessons I Would Teach My 15-Year-Old Self 👀
Happy 15th birthday! <3
This is your 25-year-old future self coming back in time to teach you the 10 lessons that will significantly change your life over the next 10 years.
P.S. You will undergo a monumental transformation in the next 10 years. I hope you’re ready for it!
1. Learn to understand, not to win. You’re the only one walking your path, no one else. Everyone has their own paths to walk on. I know you’ve been conditioned into focusing on the outcome rather than the process, but it’s time to uncondition yourself. Unlearn how to tie the shoelace, even if it takes a few years. The world is not built on a zero-sum game. Look at everything from the lens of abundance; especially education. Learn to understand and indulge in your curiosity, don’t learn to win a battle and in turn lose the war. This time that you get to spend in school, in classes, surrounded by a community of learners, is a privilege. Use it well.

Hi, wonderful reader!
If you’d like to support me in some way, all you gotta do is use some very cool apps.
I painstakingly choose the products I use, and some of them happen to give out some referral bonuses. Here’s a list of some of them neatly arranged on a table. Give it a glimpse, will you? Thank you. :)
Aaand.. you’re awesome. Don’t forget that. :)
