What would I Tell my 16 Year Old Self

Monday, January 28, 2013

When I was 16 I was a skinny farm girl, the youngest of 5 kids and the only one left at home. I was boy crazy, thinking every guy I saw was cute. I also had low self esteem. So I would start by telling myself that I need to focus on myself. I am a beautiful intelligent young lady who has the world at her door steps. I would encourage my self to look into college. (The reason I didn't then was I thought we couldn't afford it.) I would say keep up the hard work because it does build character. I would tell my self that I do not need a man to make me feel complete. If I don't first love myself, no one else will and the right guy will come along when its right for me. I will tell myself enjoy being thin, but don't get lazy or think I can get away with eating just anything for long. The most important thing I think I could tell myself is to stay true to myself. If I have any doubts about doing something, then I shouldn't do it.

Looking back at my life since being 16, I know I have made some mistakes. I have also made some choices that in the end have made me a better person. I am happy with my life and don't think I should change anything, because that might mess with the way I am now.
