A letter to the past (my birthday post)
In a few hours I will be turning 34. I want to celebrate my birthday different this time. Normally I would be out with friends, buying drinks, sharing some laughs and having a good time.
This year I will be sleeping when the clock turns 12 and I turn 34 as I want to not miss my BJJ training in the morning.
Inspired by @diabolika letter to herself I want to do the same.
Dear young me. I am actually uncertain what I want to tell you and you should be doing different. The experience you are going to make will be fun and sad, irrelevant and meaningful but you will take a lot of time to be able to see which is which.
I like my current self and as I have still a lot to achiev and would be happy if I started certain things sooner, I want to be me.
I could just leave you with the message buy a shitload of bitcoin or this and that stock since you care so much about money at this stage. But let me tell you, money wont give you the happiness you are looking for and you little idiot would spend it all anyways. Finacial freedom is achieved by saving and investing and is not only for the lucky ones.
You will need to create it within yourself. And this is an ongoing process. There is no finish linie you need to reach and then you are done. It is an ongoing endless path.
And it is your path. Dont be afraid of change. Dont be afraid to not fit in. Dont be afraid of the future.
Start reading, start meditating and go all in in the things which really interest you. Dont half ass your life. Dont compromiss because you think it has to be this way, society wants it.
Dont be afraid or ashamed to be yourself.
You think you have life totally figured out by now, but let me tell you, you have no idea and I mean totally no idea.
It is chaos, it can be brutal and it will knock you on your ass a pretty hard a couple of times and it is suppose to do that. Thats how you learn, grow and come back stronger and this will be your path. Be constantly growing, put in the work, dont look for shortcuts all the time there are none.
You didnt liked what ifs and have I only put in a bit more effort then and you even hate it more now.
Make sure you enjoy the journey and buckle up, it will be a hell of a ride and we are just getting started.
But yes buy some Bitcoin when you hear they exist and HODL.
Happy Birthday! May you have more bitcoins to come! Hehe.
No regrets, everything happened for a reason, and thanks to your younger self, you are what you are right now. Stay happy!
Your steemit friend,
BOOM! So true
thanks a lot.
This is such a good idea and sounds so much like something I would write to myself. I still look back a year or 3 years ago and wonder why didn't I buy more bitcoin or ETH and well at the time I didn't know lol It is always easy to look back and say yeah should of done that but living in the moment you did what you thought was best. Plus admit it happiness comes from how you live and not by the money you make or could have possibly made.
there is so much I would do different if I knew the results. Just bought more steem 2 days ago if I knew it would be dropping like this well I would have waited of course.
But thats not which will define my happiness and next month I will not think about this anymore, so no reason to be mad about it.
I try to focus on the things I can control, doesnt work everytime but I am getting better at it
I would just tell myself the winning lottos numbers and ounce I win never worry about money again.
The best joys come from true freedom of choice.
Happy birthday.. May you scale high in Life, Cryptocurrency and in Steemit.
I wish you the same :-)
happy birthday to you, god bless you
