10 THINGS I’D TELL 16 YEAR OLD ME

1. You are beautiful, stay away from the trends if you can (the photos will haunt you) and make the most of your uniqueness. Let everyone else try to look like everyone else and you just be you. You’re awesome.

2. Talking of beauty, you will look back one day and be amazed at just how glorious your body was and wish you could live one more day in that figure. Enjoy it!

3. If they treat you like dirt now that will never change, no matter how hard you try.

4. Bad Boys are attractive yes, but they bring nothing but trouble and pain. In a few years they won’t be so cool trust me, they will be left behind.

5. Talking of cool. Here is a little fact for you: the things that make you cool at this age don’t necessarily translate into ‘the real world’. Being cool only matters to kids. You have a long life ahead, choose wisely.

6. Just do what you think is right in this life and let everyone else do the same. Try not judge and don’t pay attention to other’s opinions of you, that’s none of your business and it only distracts you from your goal.

7. When it comes to matters of the heart: you are the main act, NOT a warm-up show, not a rehearsal.

8. You feel so passionate about everything right now I know, it’s a combination of hormones and desperation to mean something to the world. Try to only stand up when you’re sure the cause is worth your time. If it is, go for it.

9. Friends come and go like the seasons. Let them come, let them go. The right ones will stick around, it just happens naturally, it shouldn’t feel like hard work.

10. Integrity is important. It means doing the right thing even when no one is looking. Have fun yes, go wild sometimes yes, but always, always remember to keep your integrity. It will serve you well.
