Letter to my younger self- Mohamed

Dear me,

I don’t even know where to begin. So much has changed since you were a young child. You probably are getting annoyed at Hooyo for always dressing you up to go to some party of your friends or Dad telling you off because you threw some food on the floor. Always remember that all these things will add up and you will fully understand why. There will be a lot of obstacles in your path and a lot of struggle will come charging your way. But remember, the struggle you go through will make you become patient, kind, compassionate and humble towards others.

So many great things will happen. I can’t explain to you what they are but you know soon enough little one. You will experience things you never thought you would experience. You will accomplish challenges and expeditions that even a normal person wouldn’t be able to comprehend. Also, you will experience pain, frustration, and stress along the way. It comes both ways Mohamed.

You will meet lovely people in your life. People will always have your back no matter what. Never let them go. Also, there will be people that will say all the right words at all the right time but in the end, its actions you should judge them by. Its actions not words that matter. Travelling will be your utmost joy. Going to cities, meeting new people and contemplating on yourself. There will be a lot of that. Don’t be frightened because I know you will rise to the occasion when it matters. Always do what you love. Because the things that you love will get you to where you want to go. The mistake that you will do is set high expectations on others, but always set high expectations on yourself.
Everything was impossible until it’s done. 

Yours Truly,

Future Mohamed.
