I made so many mistakes in my life specially when I was younger. I always look back and wish I hadn't made them and I always have moments when I wish I could bring back time and tell myself things I should have known but didn't.
I've always thought of making a post about it, but somehow always forgot to until
I read Brook's post today and saw her post entitled, If I Knew Then....
So, inspired by Brook's If I Knew Then, here are the things I wish I could tell my younger self.
6th grade self
You are so much more than you think you are.
You think you can't dance but you CAN and someday you're going to enjoy being
on stage so much that you're going to wish you started earlier.
Chin up and be proud. If they can do it, you can too (even better!) Don't let anyone push you around.
Dream big. Aim high. You can be anything you want to be. Just believe in yourself.
Don't be in a hurry to grow up.
Don't be sad if you haven't met a guy. (For those who don't know I studied in an all-girls school).
They will come later.
You are special and don't let anyone make you think otherwise. One man's opinion is not necessarily the opinion of the whole male population.
Ask God. Listen to Him and Trust in Him.
You are not yet ready for a life-long commitment.
There'll be plenty more opportunities.
Babies grow up so fast. Enjoy every moment you spend with your baby.
Don't make decisions when you're mad or angry. It is difficult to find another company as great as the one you're connected with.
Spend as much time as you can with your son. Play with him, do things with him. He's not going to be a little boy forever.
You are not as thin as you think you are. If you gain a lot of weight now, it will be so hard to lose some later.
Pursue your dream to be a laywer. Teaching is good but one day, you'll wish you pursued your dream.
So these are just some of the things I wish I could say to my younger self. But yesterday is gone forever. I guess I just have to be satisfied with learning from the past.
