HAWMC Day 10, Dear 16 Year Old Me

Today's challenge topic is; Dear 16-year-old-me. Write a letter to yourself at age 16. What would you tell yourself? What would you make your younger self aware of?

My letter to myself is short and sweet, if I remember correctly my attention span at 16 was short!

Dear 16-year old me,

Start healthy habits now that will last you a life time, eat better, and exercise more. Try running (barefoot), you might like it! Learn to meditate and stress less; take life as it comes. Work on your patience, it's a virtue that will help you throughout your life. Worry less about what people think of you and march to your own beat; your true friends will stick around. Get out of your shell and do something out of your comfort zone, it will help you later in life.  Don't be afraid to speak up because what you have to say needs to be heard; if you don't, people might take advantage of you. Don't follow your friends, they are not always right.

Learn a second language. It will help you later in life. Follow and cultivate your artistic side, you might find a few hobbies you enjoy. Be less of a perfectionist, finish things even if you don't think they are perfect; it doesn't always matter in the end. Read more for enjoyment; you like it and you will be smarter for it.

Don't worry about not knowing what you want to do with your life. Try thinking outside the box; you can do whatever you want! Don't follow someone else's path, choose something for yourself; that someone won't be around long anyway. 

Spend more time with your family. Take more pictures; it will help you remember things better and you might find out you're good at it.

Keep doing what you're doing; there will be ups and downs, but that's life.

Love always and forever,

P.S. When you are in college, take a second glance at that guy sitting behind you in your technical writing class; one day he will become your husband!

If you were writing a letter to yourself at 16 what would it say?
