What I Would Tell The 20-Year-Old Younger Me.

Bounce Back

Hello everyone, how are you doing? I am excited to share today but before I do, let me give you a back story to this post.

As you may know, my world is now much fuller with several responsibilities and the demanding paths of growth I am currently, extremely exciting and invigorating, I genuinely cannot wait to see the woman I would become as I journey with my alliances and God leading me.

I was at a small gathering with some of my team members and one of the questions at the meeting we all were to answer was, What Would you tell your 20-year-old younger self?                                                                                                This question took me on an interesting journey because this year marks 20 years since my mum passed.

Hmm…

I would have told myself not to worry, that everything would be fine; even better than fine. I would go through an exhilarating journey filled with growth, refinement, and purpose. Everything would lead me to the very place I need to be for my divine assignment. Every opposition and challenge is for my good.

I would have told myself not to engage in mentally draining planning because of many uncertainties and fear of not reaching my goals. I did not have to worry about my education because I would gain admission to the most prestigious college, the University of Lagos, and would even get a scholarship for a master’s in public health as I have always dreamed of.

My siblings would turn out just fine and they will be very brilliant at whatever path they tow as Moyo is doing here and here, and my sweet brothers are doing as well. Like the saying goes; Gbogbo wa la ma je breakfast.

‘Then the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. 3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it lingers, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:2-3 NIV  

Twenty years down the line, although I am not yet married as I imagined, I would be in a very happy place secured and assured of my sonship in Christ. Much more than that, He would find me as a partner to do His goodwill on earth to help those who are going through what I have gone through and to hold their hands because God can turn pain into purpose.

This is why I am hosting an online webinar on the 30th of May at 5 pm on Zoom as I celebrate the memory of Idowu and share tips and experiences that would liberate everyone from the grip of pain, grief, loss, heartbreak, and regrets unto living free and purposefully. I would be joined by Jacob, who is an amazing fella; I look forward to an interesting session with you.

Please kindly register to receive the webinar link and share it with everyone in your circle.

We need to be healed people to build a healed nation.

Talk soon.

All my love,

Perry.
