Hello Beautiful People ❤
I hope you had a nice weekend? It goes by too fast doesn’t it?
I’ve been thinking recently of how much my life has changed over the last few years. How much I’ve changed really. While we are supposed to be foolish when we are young, there are a few things I wish I could go back and tell my 16 year old self. It’s amazing how much one’s perspective can change and what you can learn in just a few years.
16 Things I Would Tell My 16 Year Old Self
- Stop over plucking your eyebrows, those bad boys are hard to grow back!
- Stop eating so much crap – eat nutritious food that isn’t full of chemicals!
- You’re not fat, you really just aren’t.
- Being a book worm is cool, don’t pretend your not.
- Listen to your parents, they really are right.
- Stop sweating the little things, you’re going to look back and laugh at the problems you thought you had.
- Spend more time with your grandparents.
- Your make up does not look good. Less is More.
- Stop trying to act cool. You’re not. You’re the clumsy / goofy friend and that’s ok!
- Saving isn’t boring, you will be thankful your parents made you do it!
- Realize who your real friends are, they are the ones who really matter.
- Stop plucking your eyebrows – this just needs to be said again.
- Make sure to tell your parents how much you appreciate what they do for you.
- Understand that things don’t always go your way, you will be ok though.
- Stand up for what you believe is right – don’t worry what other people think.
- Don’t fight your parents on the braces topic – you will end up getting them later on in life and have to pay for them yourself!
To be honest, this list could go on and on. I can only imagine what I will be saying about my 24 year old self in a few years time. Hindsight really is wonderful thing. I have always been told that time is the greatest healer, something I never paid much attention to. Probably because I didn’t have to. It’s amazing how past problems can now seem so trivial when they meant everything to you when they were happening.
It’s a great learning curve to realise that life keeps going and so do we, even when we think we can’t. Something that is definitely a perk of growing up!
All My Love
