Since February is the month for Valentine’s Day, I thought it would be fun to join a blog hop where we write a letter to our sixteen year old self.
It’s been a while since I was sixteen (and no, I won’t tell you how long ago ;). But if I wrote a letter to myself, here is what I would say:
1) Learn to be a good friend. Don’t worry about dating or finding the right guy. Just enjoy being yourself and be a good friend.
2) You know that leader from youth group, the good looking funny one? The one who you see just as a friend? He’s the one, and he’s worth waiting for.
3) Don’t take life so seriously. Yes, be responsible. Yes, get the grades. But learn to laugh at yourself and when you fail, get back up. Failing doesn’t mean the end of the world.
4) You’re going to go through a lot, but you will become a better person for it.
I survived my teen years. I married my best friend. And I have become a better person. Makes me wonder what I’ll learn in the next thirty years and if I could write to myself from my sixtieth year, what I would tell myself now.
How about you? If you could write to your sixteenth self, what would you say?
