Dear 23 (going 24) year old self

Dear twenty three (going twenty four) year old self,

It’s the eleventh day of 2014, and I hope you’re surviving. It’s not easy being a working adult, holding down a 9-5 job. What do I exactly want from my life? Or specifically, what do I want by the end of 2014? I really hope to set myself free, and travel to different countries to help people, and share my joy. I know it’s tough to work for something that you’ve always wanted, and this is no exception for me. I’d really like to bring joy to people through animal assisted therapy. It would mean so much to me to see people receive the help they need. I’m really not sure how I’m gonna raise funds for my 2016 trip round the world because it’s not going smoothly at all. If you know how, or have any ideas on how I can raise funds and let people know my progress, I’d really appreciate it.

I will update this blog every week to let y’all track my progress in the amount of funds I’ve raised thus far. As of today, I’ve raised a total of SGD$1000.92 nett. To those who are willing to help me out to reach my dream of travelling around the world, remember that your monetary/non-monetary contributions will go towards helping people overcome their difficulties through animal assisted therapy. Fret not, I’m not gonna cheat you of your money. Am currently trying to collaborate with a few animal assisted therapy centres around the globe to see what we can offer.

I guess I could use this time to reflect on my inner self and see if I’m capable enough to handle this project alone. I’m worried about the funding and whether or not this will work out for me and for the people I’ve yet to encounter. Hopefully, someone will give me the chance to work with them and make my dreams a reality. So dear twenty three going twenty four year old self, trust Your own instincts and follow your heart. Help others in need. Find the time. Save whatever money you possibly can.

Till then,
Have a good year ahead.
