I wish I could say to my younger self

It’s Jacob Pacheco, we’ve connected recently at a: conference, campus, workplace, a friendly chat, or online.


I shared a message that stuck, and you wanted to hear more; it’s why we’re talking now. Thank you. You mean a lot to me.


I wrote a small poem, “ I wish I could tell you…”


What I wish I could say to my younger self now, saving him heartache


I wish I could tell you to be patient through the pain

What we gain is priceless:

A path to glue the broken bits of our soul back together again

You have a part to play, but you will be okay

To learn that life-long lesson

But let the record show, we took the blows,

And did it our way


If you could, what would you tell the younger you?
