Question 4. List 10 things you would tell your 16-year-old self, if you could.
Sheesh. I don't typically live in the high school past. I'm going to try and we'll see where this goes:
|Senior prom. I'm 17, but couldn't easily |
get my hands on a 16 yr old pic.
2- You are beautiful. BEAUTIFUL. Enjoy that skinny body now because it will not last.
3- You are smart. No really, you are and you shouldn't take it for granted, but instead should dive into new areas to learn even more.
4- I'm proud of you. You aren't trendy, you aren't fashionable, you aren't super cool, but you have a neat personality that makes you unique. I'm glad you realize you don't need all that superficial stuff. Good Job!

6- I wish I could help you fear less and take more chances - go for it, girl! You've got mad skills that you'll forget about later in life, so soar with them now!
7- When your dad yells, "Tap It Out, Leroy!" across the field when it's pretty much silent and everyone across three counties can hear him, he's really telling you he loves you and is proud of you. :)
8- Eat something other than Reese Cups and Dunkin' sticks. That is horribly unhealthy for you and what the heck are you thinking? How about creating some healthy habits for a change?
9- This is simply a warm-up for the life you have ahead. Yes, you are having fun and I'm thankful for that... but girl, you have so much to come that will be wonderful. Enjoy this now, be prepared for so much more!
10- Don't. Just don't. You know what I'm talking about, get your head on straight and listen to me. Don't. ... ... then again, who knows what would change if you didn't, so it's ok. Do. :)
