A letter to my younger self: Aisha Sheikh-Anene

as I call it my ‘mental health tool kit’.I would also say to my younger self: remember you are the holder of the key to your own destiny. Decide for yourself what your experience will be; listen to others but let the decision be yours.Also remember in life everything needs balance.

Different sized cogs all play their part in the forward momentum of life – one is no less and no more important. They all require attention; be kind to yourself. Finally I like to remember Desiderata by Max Hermann, an excerpt of which says:“In the noisy confusion of life keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.”
