Drake unearthed a few Twitter relics Wednesday night and preached a short-but-sweet lesson on progress.

The Grammy winner publicized screenshots of his DMs dating between 2009 and 2013 via Instagram, posting an introspective caption that everyone should take a minute to read. “…take a quick moment to digest the progression in your life no matter how small or large,” he preached.

The oldest conversation presented was with Trey Songz from nearly a decade ago, telling Drake to “hit me on da berry” with his BlackBerry Messenger email account. A pre-Section.80 Kendrick Lamar followed in 2011 with Drizzy making an assumption that turned out to be correct — the album was indeed incredible. Messages from NBA players Kevin Durant and Tristan Thompson, the late A$AP Yams and his muse Paris Morton were also included.

Take a look at the Instagram post below.

In case you missed it, Drake and Future teased a possible part two of What a Time to Be Alive.
