Letter to 10-Year-Old Me From 20-Year-Old Me

Dear me,

Wow! I can’t believe how much you’ve grown. I totally knew you were gonna grow past 5”2. (Duh! Were you expecting me to remain the same?! *rme)

Wait! What’s all this black stuff on your face?! (It’s called acne. comes with the territory). Hmm. Whatever! You’re still cute tho; 🙂

Your hair is absolutely gorgeous. Natural eh?! Knew that Kim Kardashian-weave-wearing-wannabe wasn’t you. (IKR!)

Aww! You’re a writer. Who would have known?! All those Harlequins and M&Bs finally paid off. Buh you detested literature! How come?(erm..Dreams change!)
*sigh. I’m happy for you though. I knew you’re so gonna step out of that comfort zone of yours. I cannot wait to hear your composed vows on your wedding day. It’s allowed right?! (Pretty much i guess)

Really glad you finally found your bearing with God. You’re so passionate about fulfiling your purpose and bringing others to Christ. Impressive! I knew all those Churchy things wasn’t totally a waste. (Really?!)

Seoul?! Hmm. What exactly is it with you and Koreans (Duhh! I’m in love). Smh

Gosh! You’re so stubborn (I’m not. I have a mind of my own :|)

Took a sneak peek into your bucket list……Globe-Trotter?!! Goodluck with that. (Get Lost Kid!)

Hold up! No boy trouble?! Nahh that’s pretty hard to believe. (Pftt! Don’t make me sound like a broken record). Buh what happened to Dayo?! Tot you guys were BFFs. (Stuff happens!)

Photography?! LMAOO. After all your shakara. thought you said you were cameras-shy?! (*rme). You’ll totally rock as a makeup artist. I know so. All those hide-and-seek makeup cannot go down the drain. LOL (Wait,what?! Smh)

Honestly,i’m proud of who you’ve turned out to be. With God by your side you’ll be unstoppable.
Just hold on to those values,set standards, don’t compromise your chastity, don’t settle for less and put God first. (Aww! How sweet)

Yours’ sincerely


Letter to My Future Daughter

Hiya People!

I have always wanted to have children (Not now tho; LOOL. Somewhere in the near future). 2 boys and 2 girls. (No cheating :|). Really i dunno where the inspiration came from. I just thought of it yesterday. Oh! now i remember. My mum and i have a rusty relationship (Old news i know). From time to time, after one of those heated arguments, I sit back and think of my own children. One thing i know for sure is history isn’t gonna repeat itself. I’m gonna be part of my children’s lives. I’m gonna be involved and above all i’m gonna be their best friend. Really! I mean it.

Anyways i’ve decided to write a letter to my unborn daughter you know so as to remind myself of those things i’ll love to do with her.
