    Jan 7 2013: Dear Feyisayo,
    Hope you're having fun? It's great being 17 isn't it?
    But remember when you were 10 and 17 seemed distant? Now you are 17 and 27 looks distant!
    Life is short. The foundation of a house is very important even though no one sees it when the house stands; so, Feyisayo, now is the time for you to build a solid foundation for the future.
    Dont believe everything you see on Tv; there is no beauty of the world that would not fade. These pop stars are here boasting like immortals.....many have done that before them; now they are old, grey, wrinkled and probably ugly.
    Take Ecclesiastics 12:1 from the Bible seriously.
    Love life, live in love, and make every day a day of selfless service.
    And dont forget: we are not made to make money.

    Yours Faithfully

    Be patient all good things comes to those who wait.......life's a bitch at times but the good times make up for it always & we all have good times to come as long as we enjoy the moment & be appreciative of what one's got not what one could get.

    Jan 9 2013: I would have told myself to be very careful who you surround yourself with, because the five people you spend the most time with often you become a lot like them. I would have told myself not to stress out, take a deep breath and relax because everything will be okay. Most importantly I would have told myself, to love myself!
