If I knew then what I know now...Tweetyour16yearoldself

I don't usually get into the trending topics on Twitter, but this latest one "tweetyour16yearoldself" struck a little bit of a chord with me. When I was 16, I kind of had life by the horns. Of course at the time I didn't know it, but then again that's when things were more simple. Here were some of the things I wish my 16-year old self knew:

  • That itch you had to break up? Listen to it & do it when you're still calling the shots.
  • All that self-confidence you had? Try like hell to keep it as you get older.
  • The tweezers is your friend, the Brooke Shield's look is OVER.

And most importantly:

  • Spend more time w/g. gma, & pay better attention when she teaches you how to knit...again.

I wish I had listened to my g. gma more when I was 16. I was too busy being a social butterfly and rolling my eyes when she had something to tell me. It wasn't until soon before her death that I really let the knitting & crocheting instructions sink into my head and I'm forever happy it did.

What should you say to your 16-year old self?
