Dear Erin. is something I came up with when I was lazing around dreaming of everything under the sky. You know, we all have that moment where you sit, gaze into space and let your brain wonder to catch whatever ideas there are in the air?Dear Erin,
The biggest investment you can ever make is investing in yourself.
It brings no meaning to have the riches of the world or a gazillion friends, but at the end of the day, not know who you are.
Invest lots and lots of time in yourself. Be patient and full of compassion to yourself.
Read books, write letters and surround yourself with good and wise people.
Do things that make you happy. But most importantly, do things that makes you think.
And when I say think, I don't mean having a thought in your mind for a near second or having a passing thought that gets lots with the wind.
You have to dig deeper.
Think and rethink and rethink again.
Your thoughts need substance and
Your thoughts need depth.
The brain doesn't like to think so it might seem unnatural in the beginning.
But persevere on because the merits of having thoughts of your own is better than anything you can get from the world.
Some people grow up, never to know who they truly are, never to have any thoughts of their own.
Some people only start thinking when they are 22 or 56!
But you are not like that
You were fearfully and wonderfully made by your Creator
And you will think.
You will think of precious thoughts
And no one can tell you that they are of any less of worth
Because they were your thoughts
and they are uniquely yours
Invest in yourself and think.
