#WisdomWednesday – 25 things that I would share with my younger self

So I turned 25 last month and although I did have a blog post planned, I trashed it. I don’t know why, I felt it was a bit cheesy. Anyway, since Jan-Feb-March are three consecutive birthday months, I am surrounded by thoughts of getting old. It feels like now is the time that I should begin my sentences with, “Remember when…” or “When I look back now…”.

So looking back on my life, here’s 25 things that I would share with my younger self

  1. Beauty is about more than complexion
  2. This too shall pass …and faster than you think
  3. Cut your losses
  4. It is not as important to be feared as it is to be respected.
  5. Live your life regardless
  6. Keep dancing
  7. Stay focused
  8. Don’t be afraid; be confident
  9. You can’t change everyone
  10. You are stronger than you think
  11. You are a small part of a big world
  12. Your today will become yesterday quickly; Have no regrets
  13. Being smart can get you in trouble too
  14. Sometimes compromises lead you to great rewards
  15. You can’t lose what was never yours
  16. You can be whoever you want to be
  17. Learn to cook
  18. Continue learning to play the keyboard
  19. Dont sing; you can dance, but just. dont. sing.
  20. Life has a great suprise for you at 21, look forward to it
  21. It doesn’t matter who boasts in the now, trust me, in the future they’ve got nothing to boast about
  22. You will be successful
  23. Accept disappointments; nothing can be changed about them
  24. There are so many paths in life, it’s okay if everything doesn’t go according to your plan because trust me, there is a bigger plan; one thats been working out great for you so far
  25. THINK before you EXECUTE


Now that I’ve finished writing this post, another thousand things have popped into my head ..hmm this should have be a thousand pieces of advice instead of just 25. Wait; was I that God awful at life that I need SO many pieces of advice?! Lol, I’d better get started on writing a book on do’s and don’ts for Ralee ..seems like there’s a lot I have to share!
