Letter To My Future Self

Dear Readers,
It seems like every time I get my act together and find a schedule that works, something happens that throws me off balance and then I have to start all over again. I apologize for the long and hard break in blogging. Life just seems to always find a way in. That’s not to say that it’s not been a beautiful year so far.

For the past few days I've been reflecting a lot on how far I've come in my personal life and what lessons I’d like to remember ten (10) years from now. Therefore, I've decided to write this letter to my future self. If you could, what would you say to your future self, based on your current situation?

Dear Future (Mrs.) Adenike O. ______________ (Adebayo):
If you are reading this letter, then you are most probably at a point in your life when you feel the need to
reflect. You are most probably married with kids. Your life is beautiful just as you've always prayed for.
Are you happy? Are you truly genuinely happy? I sure hope you are. You see, you've been through so
much: physically, emotionally, spiritually and in every aspects of your life. You've made a lot of mistakes. I’m thinking of some of the mistakes now and It’s making me cringed. Dang! I can’t believe I actually did that. Anyway, back to you.

My main purpose of writing this letter is to let you appreciate how far you've come, and most importantly, how far God has brought you. You found Christ when you are only 7 years old and you devoted your life to him. In the course of your journey you stumbled and fell, over and over again. But He was always there to help you up. He never gave up on you.

You made friends, you lost friends. You cried, you laughed. You dated! Oh, let’s not forget the boys. (Since you are happily married now, I’m sure your husband won’t mind.) There were guys you liked but they did not like you, some liked you but you did not like them and others you dated. But of course, it did not work out for any of them: until you met your husband, then you knew. You just knew it was him.
