LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF
[EPEKTO NG DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME AND WAKING TOO EARLY]
To the younger Mr. (True name Witheld), congratulations for surving high school. I am the older version of you.
here are a few things to report on the personal front:
You finally broke down and got a cell phone. (Sellout.)
You are not a virgin anymore. (Hurrah)
You will get to travel outside the country...a lot (25 countries)
Life is not what you thought it would be. (Hallelujah.)
here's some advice for you that I wish I had learned earlier:
The habits you form here will stick with you, in some form or another, for the rest of your life. If you want to do something you need to actually sit down and work at it everyday. Talent is nothing without hard work.
Take the time to reflect and think about what is honestly important to you, then figure out how to get there. You'll save a lot of effort later if you're only focusing on the things that are truly taking you towards where you want to go, not where someone else thinks you should go. I heard a great quote the other day "If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's. And guess what they might have planned for you? Not much
Follow your dreams. Whatever you choose, apply yourself fully to it and you will realize wealth. It may not be great financial wealth, but will come in the form of self satisfaction, self respect, and to love what you do for a lifetime. Wealth comes in many forms – and most of them are far more precious than money
When you think about the choices you have made in life and still have to make, go with your instinct and don’t change a thing.
Stop being afraid of what other people think and trying to win their approval. Everyone you're scared of right now doesn't amount to much.
Get a degree. Eventually music will be produced completely by computer and you will need to find a job if you want to survive. LOL
Study hard but play harder. Take more risks, party harder and please talk to the pretty girls in the party. Nothing is gonna happen if you don't initiate. I will say this. Do foolish stuff. Have fun. In a few years you will look back on it fondly and if you don't, by then you will have wished you did and it will be then too late.
Stop worrying about how things will turn out. You're actually gonna turn out to be a pretty interesting guy. You’re more popular than you think— try to enjoy that. smile always, because you never know who's falling in love with it.
It doesn’t really matter what you do in college, as you will soon discover no matter what you study you will still be woefully unprepared for the Real World. Make the most of it. Commit all the sins you can remember and invent some others.
Now is the time to make those mistakes. enjoy it while people still tolerate it.
Restless is a season, not a lifestyle. Spend your free time wisely. Learn...Always. From books, newspapers, college, the internet. Continue to constantly evolve and learn...Read for fun, even when you don't have time. Don't get lazy in your classes. What's the harm in giving your best efforts?
Keep playing the piano. You will really need it later on. Learn to dance. You've always wanted to. don't be afraid to go to classes while your body still can. Forget that all your friends think its faggy. don't quit your wushu training. develop that quiet confidence that you know if a real fight comes a long you know how to handle yourself.
Stay in shape.I'm now at a point in my life where I'm starting to pay more attention to my health and fitness and I'm realizing how hard it is to get in shape. It's no fun, but a few years from now when I'm in really good shape it will be easy to maintain. remember, all that SOFTDRINK you will drink will end up in your tummy.
Floss - EVERYDAY! You'll have healthy gums, healthier teeth, you will decrease chronic inflammation in your body and add 2 to 4 years to your lifespan, and you will not have to worry about having bad breath.
One of your big stress triggers is trying to do too much in a day. Learn to prioritize and just let some things go.Don't spread yourself too thin.
Keep up with the friendships you have. No one wished that he had lesser friends. They are treasures that should be kept close to the heart.
Lastly, and again, LEARN. learn from life. No matter how mundane or soul destroying any job or activity is you can learn something from it. The strangest jobs will be the ones that pay off the best in the long run.
Don't be afraid of failure. Actually, head for it. Now, of all times, is when to take risks. It only gets more complicated as you get older Too many wise men have mentioned the need for failure to understand success, and one doesn't work without the other.
GIVE, you will find yourself most contented when you think about yourself the least.
stay away from baggy clothing. its a fad that will quickly go away.
