I turned 25 today 🎉 if you know me well enough, you know I’ll take every chance I can to share a message. Hear me out on this one and let that be my birthday gift 🤷🏻♂️ I’ve always known this, but I think I’m only beginning to understand it. I hope it resonates with you.
As the very generation in our mid 20s and early 30s, we are currently writing the history of the future with every move we make. We are at the pinnacle of influence; young enough to create/innovate, but old enough to be taken seriously and navigate through the constructs that exist. Old enough to take action. We’ve lived long enough to realize there are many powers of evil at work, but have found peace in realizing there is much good too. History has been brutal, but it’s also had its glorious moments that have led us to this day. We are alive, well and breathing. But we know this isn’t enough. There’s much to do here. In this pursuit, let us not forget the beauty of the old and the ancient; in fact, let us dig deep and find the treasures our ancestors have left us, and encompass the ones our parents and grandparents have gifted us foremost. For it is not our duty as the new generation to completely build the world up, but to rebuild it - step by step, choice by choice, word by word - encompassing all that has ever been good with humanity, but leaving behind that which doesn’t serve us anymore. And adding in that which we know will, in fact, add. Let us not forget the responsibility we have in carrying forward the parts of our own history that the future generations should know - whether that be the story of us getting bullied in high school or that food recipe our mom was handed down through generations and generations - it is essential wisdom which must not be forgotten in order to create a better world. And it starts with us individually first. Wishing you the best in our pursuit ❤️ thanks for reading, love you.
