Hello, younger self. Words of wisdom from your elder self:

Make it a point to define and understand the difference between passion and desire. Focus on passion to guide and direct you on the paths that you journey in life, and don’t let desire get in the way.

Be an agent of transformation in your culture and not a subject of conformity to what society tries to tell you to be.
Be generous and give abundantly, yet learn to receive graciously, but don’t take from others.

Be bold and keep moving forward, don’t spend too much time making decisions when a fork in the road presents itself; it’s amazing how all paths can lead to the same destination. Focus on the goals ahead of you and the milestones that you’ll leave, but don’t be distracted by comparing yourself with others.

Make sure you find time to rest and rejuvenate.

Love, laugh, and live a life worth living.
