Legacy of life what's yours ? (Letter to sixteen year old self)

Life's too short to moan isn't it?

Blink and you will miss the wonderful world that is around your life is for living after all its not a rehearsal and your life is like the London 2012 is a legacy for all. So it might be raining , the bankers have all our money you've burnt your toast again. So stop feeling like the superb film that is 'Wonderful life ' and how the world would cope without you are just get on with living!.


Like the Olympians that have thrilled us with their humbling humanity who just get on with their lives.

You might not be everyone cup of tea so what  if you could go back in time what would you write to your sixteen year old self . What would be your legacy of life?



Well this is my sons letter to his sixteen year old self . You know the drill the sort of letter you would write to your sixteen year old self. He is only thirteen and his letter is very in depth and very humbling. Its something that we as adults could learn from. To often we are cliched about teenager, how they are too angst and likening them to Kevin and Perry. And when we try to talk to them a tumbled weed bounces through the room.

Its frightening to see my son feels at times how I felt at his age and still feel at times. So its time to give him a positive legacy for the challenges of life that he will face. All he needs to know is that he will not be alone when he does so.


So I from now on put my confident boots on and leave my "worry boots" behind.

  4. He writes so well, and sounds so much more mature than 13. It made me feel sad though to think people are horrid to him, but once he leaves school and goes to uni maybe, I'm sure he will shine. I think he's amazing, and from the pictures I've seen, he's very good looking too, his future girlfriend will be a very lucky lady xx

  12. It's odd, isn't it, I somehow accept 'us adult' writing these letters but it feels even more wounding to think of a teenager doing the same. I guess that's because, well for me, I remember how tough those years were, filled with both maturity and immaturity in different levels. And yet, reading this, I feel I have underestimated my recollection.
