Response to letter to my 30yr old self

Hello everyone, 

So I got a very unexpected comment today on my post “A Letter to my 30yr old self”. It was from

I don’t know the owner of this blog but I was really touched and blown away by the letter so thank you. Here it goes:


Dear 14 year old me,

You still love photography, and writing if you must know. In fact you even performed a couple of poems for an audience much to their applause. Your friends and you grew up. Some left the country for further studies, some got married, some kept in touch.

You dropped One Direction the moment you set foot in campus because some new band came along, and a new hype of music caught your ears. Not because you stopped loving One Direction, you actually do, and once in a while you will play back their music and get all teary and washy (feeling nostalgic) but because that is how human beings are – they move on fast.

And about travelling, you did travel – A LOT! You met amazing men who could ski and swim and do all sorts of things you never dreamed possible… and then you met this one man who made everything else make sense, who made you happy and who got you.

You had adorable kids, a wonderful job and guess what, a lot of people look up to you now. Yes you are an inspiration. I think you even wrote a book… please publish it!

A word of caution: Always remember to tell those you care about how much you love them, and girl, don’t let boy drama side-track you because trust me, your campus days were filled with a lot of that stuff. You’ll have plenty of time then. Focus on your books now, and cherish those three best friends you have!

Just so you know, the view from here looks incredible!


Well that’s a relief!
