Letters to the One to Come - 21


Dear Eniife, 

Lately, I found out that my endearment for you translated into English means 'Beloved'. 

It reminded me of King Solomon's love letter to one of his concubines. 

He said, "I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine."


It's the same way I know you're mine and I am yours. 

But before we get to meet, what tiny steps are you taking to ensure our fates and destiny are sealed together. 

What baby steps are you taking towards the home we want to build? 

What tiny steps are you taking toward purpose and destiny? 

You see, if we truly want something to play out in our future, we must start by taking little steps in the direction that will see to its fulfilment today. 

We don't just happen on greatness in any sphere. 

We must take several staggering and unsteady steps before we gain our balance. 

Eniife, do you want to become the best neurosurgeon in the world, what first steps are you taking in that direction? 

You want to be the best podcaster? Record the first podcast now and put it out. 

See, there's something I learnt recently that I'll share with you. 

Remember how to eat an elephant: one bite at a time. 

It's that simple, all you have to do is to take a bite at a time. 

Most times, the bites do not come with certainty.

You are often questioning whether you are headed in the right direction or not. 

You are constantly checking your confidence and ability.

But Eniife, you know what? 

You don't need to have the blueprint clearly mapped out before you take the step. 

The things you desire are not out of reach, you just have to put one foot in front of the other and keep moving. 

You'd need more than wishes to get something done. 

Before I wrote this particular letter, I didn't know what I wanted to tell you. 

But I knew I had to write to you. 

All I had to do was open my notepad and write whatever my fingers could form.

It didn't come out perfectly at first, and I had to struggle for some minutes. 

Before I knew it, I knew what I wanted my beloved to read. 

Whether it's towards your health, God, career, goals, dreams, finance, and even to finding me, Eniife take a tiny step in the right direction today.

I would like to know what that step would be, however.

I will be reading the comments. 

I will write again. 

All my love, 

Rebekah 🤍


  1. Thanks for the Push Opeyemi

  2. Although you addressed this message to Eniife, I found it motivating. I have learnt that we can't take a leap in life without first getting up, and a consistent drop of water can fill up a bucket. Thank you for this timely call to action.
