Living for my Nephew (Open Letter)
How are you feeling today? Pretty good. I’m glad to hear you’re doing well. Let me ask you question. Are you an auntie? Yes you said. Oh good so am I!! Isn’t auntiehood a blessing? Yes I made the word up lol.
Well I asked you that question because I want to share a letter with you I decided to write to my nephew. I want him to have something he can look back on and read forever. Do you have a few minutes to read it? Yes you said. Ok good. Here it is…
My dear nephew,
I love you today, tomorrow and yesterday. From the first day your mommy brought you home from the hospital I’ve been in love. You’ve always been a happy child with a smile that would light up a room for days. Never change this about yourself. It’s a rare trait to possess in today’s world and since God gave it to you it’s a must you never lose it.
I’m writing you this letter to encourage your journey ahead as a sophomore in high school. This is the time for you to start preparing for your next move in life. I want you to begin asking yourself questions like” What do I want to do? What do I like? What do I love? How will I show up in the world?”because although your parents brought you into this world you have an individual assignment to fulfill. You are responsible for how you choose to live your life from this day forward. I know you want to make your mommy, daddy and sisters proud which is perfectly ok but never forget about making yourself proud first. Now I know you may not be able to answer the questions I mentioned earlier right away but I want you to start preparing your mind for manifestation. What is manifestation you ask? Simply put it is asking God for what you want then waiting on Him to reveal it to you. You deserve it all. I want you to be ready for when it comes. You are a beautiful soul with a big heart. You are hard-headed sometimes but I’ve seen the lessons learned make you stronger.
I want you to continue to learn your craft. Your talent for singing has elevated you to a nurturing school enviornment with unlimited opportunities. Take advantage of them all. This is a blessing that not everyone will get to experience. You were chosen so don’t ever forget to let God know you’re thankful.
The last thing I want you to do is to continue to love honestly. Check in with your heart often to see if it’s getting all it needs. It’s important in order for it to continue to work correctly. Ask questions and start again. Enjoy the journey and never give up!!
I love you always and forever Monta,
With Hugs and Love,
What advice would you give your nephew?
