Trade-offs


Dear Old Self,

I am making this letter for you a sign of how happy and fulfilled I feel today. I just woke up from a good sleep in our king-sized bed with my beautiful wife. She’s still sleeping tough, tired with the stuff we’ve been doing in the past weeks.Oh I love seeing her soundly asleep, so innocent, so pure.

We actually came from a out-of-the-country vacation last week. We really had a great time with the family.It was the first time my little kids had the experience to play with snow. It was really a good feeling seeing them having fun. Oh, my boys are growing fast, my wife had a hard but good time running after them. Haha. And my little baby girl, I’ve been with her most of the time. I’ll be her first love, her prince and knight. I look forward to her wedding, the moment she will finally decide (and accept) that she has found a great man better than myself. Haha. I’d be glad to escort her to him. Until that time, I will be the man of her life.🙂

And my wife, I am falling in love with her every single day. Great mother to my kids and a good wife. My heart melts with love whenever I see her dedication to my kids. Yeah, I had a really hard and long time finding her. It has been a grueling journey to her, lots of lonely nights but it’s all worth it. Thank God! Thank you old self.

Financially, we are so much blessed. My business is going really fast but steady, just at the right pace. And my personal stocks are doing good. Thanks to the time you have invested for education years ago.

I’ve been in thinking of going full-time in business. Office work is great but my business needs me more. My boss in UK will have hard time finding a replacement for me for sure. Haha. Maybe be they will offer me an increase. Oh well, I’ll cross the bridge when I get there. Thanks to the goals at work you’ve set old self, you’ve grown so much since then.

Old self, thank you for all the choices that you’ve made. The sacrifices that you made for your future and your family’s welfare as well. Thank you for the patience and the hard work. I know It was a hard and difficult journey and it was all worth it. I know I’ll not be in this great life if not for you old self.

So if you’re feeling down, just read my letter and I know your fighting spirit will again lift up. So, dream on and work on it old self, it will be great. All the good things you’ve been planting will reap good fruits for sure. You have Him, what should you fear? God will bless you old self🙂 You’re actually doing great, keep it up!

Oh, my wife just woke up and I think she needs kisses.🙂

I am looking forward in meeting you. See you! Thanks again man!!!

Sincerely,
You Future Self
