What I'd Tell Myself

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.  

14-year-old self 
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.

15-year-old self
Chin up and be proud.  If they can do it, you can too (even better!)   Don't let anyone push you around.

16-year-old self
Dream big. Aim high.  You can be anything you want to be. Just believe in yourself.

18-year-old self
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.

22-year-old self
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.

23-year-old self
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.

25-year-old self
Babies grow up so fast. Enjoy every moment you spend with your baby.

26-year-old self
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.

30-year-old self
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.

33-year-old self
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.
