Open letter to
Jackie Tinovimbika Ngarande
Happy Birthday. I wrote this letter to remind you that God is not yet done with your story.
Here are some lessons you wish you knew a year ago when you started this year off, but are fairly happy you didn’t know them, because it’s just that much more fun to figure it out along the way.
1)He is out there. You don’t have to change who you are to find him. You don’t have to be someone who you are not. You can focus on building a business with intention, you should focus on finding the time to be by yourself, to focus on your family, your health, giving back, and then he will be there. He is not the guy who you will change. Those guys don’t want to be with you. Stop making excuses that romance does not exist and that guys don’t want to take girls on dates anymore, the right one will love you for exactly who you are and inspire you to be your biggest self. Keep being you, he will turn up right around the time you are 28 and make you a wife and a mum of twin baby boys
2)Not everyone is your friend and that is quite okay. You are no longer in middle school. You do not need everyone to love you, and you do not need to be everyone’s best friend. You do not need to worry about birthday parties, social calendars, the more people who tell you they are your best friend the first minute they meet you, the more cognizant you have to be of who you are actually spending your time with. People will talk about you behind you’re back because they are in their own messes, people will love you because you remind them of the things they love about themselves. You can’t be everything to everyone else but you can be good, kind, and intentional. Sometimes being good is not the easy way out. Sometimes being good and doing the right thing is hard and creates enemies. Those enemies don’t matter, and neither do those who are your fake best friends. Be you, and always be kind to everyone, even those who think they don’t like you. Be compassionate Tino knowing they may not like themselves that much . 😍😋😋😋😋😋
