To the little boy who turns 19
July 18, 2010 § 16 Comments
You have apparently completed one more revolution around the sun. Quite heartening-congrats on this wonderful achievement. I know you have learnt a lot in the past one year. You really aren’t expecting too much this time around are you?
This is what probably is called wisdom- there is nothing great about turning a year older. But I know, you are still that little kid, who wants to have a party(and lots of gifts).
So you are almost out of that college you hate. That is nice. Hope you take the right decisions and get to somewhere. After all, everyone says that you have a lot of potential and I agree with them. But potential alone isn’t going to get you anywhere. You need to keep putting in effort with belief and have a bit of luck(which will come on its own). don’t be disappointed if you aren’t able to do anything as of now- after all you are only 19.
I can understand you don’t like to wait. You like doing things and can’t wait for things to fall in place. But you need to be patient. The planets don’t run as fast as your head-a real pity, but then that is how it is!
Don’t let things hold you back. Have a clear head- I know it is tough but keep trying to. You are an optimist, I know. Don’t worry, things will go your way. Keep believing in what you believe and yourself. Don’t let petty things bother you. Be brave and don’t be afraid of dealing with those small things which trouble you.
Learn to control your temper better. It doesn’t help in anyway, except in making you feel bad. If anything, you should have learnt that life isn’t perfect and people aren’t all that good by now. I know, you like to trust people. You don’t like to be egoistic, selfish. Try to be good to everyone, whatever they say or do.
Growing up isn’t about giving up those good things. And people may come and people may go, but you go on forever. All the best! Remember I will always be there for you, whatever happens. Have an awesome year! hope you succeed in whatever you set out to do!
With loads and loads of love
