BLC 21- Letter to my 16yr old self

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Dear 16 yr old Simone,

I really would like to tell you all about life, but I don't want to spoil the surprise. Honestly, some things will be good and some things will be bad. You will get your heart broken and you will break a few hearts. Some days you will cry, others you will smile... some days you will do both.

Sometimes I look back and think, 'I would do that differently' or I wish I hadn't done that, but my choices in the past have brought me where I am today... and I'm happy to be right here. Everyday won't be a blast, but make the most of what you have and just enjoy life. It is yours to enjoy.

I think the most important thing that I know now that I didn't know back then is that I am beautiful... Yes, Simone, YOU ARE beautiful so don't tell yourself or let others tell you otherwise... so you can go ahead and smile in those photographs. Most importantly, always love yourself.

Nearly 26yr old Simone

    Nice letter Simone! Since I am so much older than you, I can honestly tell you that you are way ahead of the game! Life is just beginning to unfold for you and your words will serve you well.
