March 11th, 2013… Email of the Week

With the movement of 100 Things growing gradually into various regions around the world, this week’s ‘Email of the Week‘ comes from China where I received the lovely offer of being a young boy’s “big brother”.

“Dear Seb!
 
     I am a 17-year-old boy named Jonathan from Beijing China. I have the honour of reading ur book these days and I have learnt a lot from it. I think everyone can have own ideas and only need some courange. I am studying interenational financial affairs in BJ and there are many years from my graduation so I can not do something like u now but I believe one day I can live my real life.  I love ur  plans and ur courange. I always remembering a sentence when I was reading ur book that “follow your heart “.U are doing the right things and I hope one day I can make a list and achieve them like what u r doing now. If u don’t mind I really really really want to be ur friend or a littile brother. By the way, when u come to BJ u can call me and I am very glad to talking with u about everything. That will makes me extremely excitied. Here is my phone number 15************ and my qq is 15*********. I know there are number of e-mails that sent for u but I really wish u can read my letter and write back because maybe this is the frist thing on my list if I have. Thank U so much!
 
I wish you all the best and every success!!!
Yours, Jonathan”
There is something to this journey so much deeper than a simple list and to see that message make it’s way to the minds of people like Jonathon makes me smile endlessly. Of course I wrote back to Jonathon and i’m proud to say I now have a little brother in Beijing!
