I'm talking to you

Aren't there so many things that you would love to tell a younger you.  I've made a list of a few of mine.

  1. Play a sport even though you're really, really bad at them.
  2. Almost never get a credit card.  
  3. Don't wear dresses/skirts to school everyday while in the 8th & 9th grade and don't use the excuse that they're comfortable. You are killing your social life.
  4. Don't start drinking diet coke.  You will be an addict for life.
  5. Choose good friends who are going places and make the sacrifices to stay in contact with them.
  6. Alway, always value friendship and apologize as soon as possible when you mess up (because you will mess up.)
  7. Alway pay attention to what you wear and how you look.  Wrong or right other people pay attention.
  8. Do what you love not what you like.
  9. Never kiss boys...only men.
  10. Only buy nice purses and nice shoes.  Your feet won't hurt and your purses will last longer.
  11. Spend more time with your grandparents and write down every story
  12. Allow more godly mentors in your life.
I would have to say that #2, #10 & #11 would probably be the ones that are the most important.  So let's share.  What's one thing you would tell your younger self if you could?


  1. Hi Danette- I got my yellow JCrew bubble necklace on ebay. Just punch in JCrew bubble necklace. I am pretty sure I have a knockoff it was only $14.99, (IDC) even with the Jcrew stamp on the little tag. Anyway, good luck, hope you get one. I also think VeryJane.com is selling them too. winks, jen

  2. Oh my gosh-so many! In a nutshell:
    1. Be yourself and if you don't quite fit in, don't try so hard. The real you is awesome and those who don't get that aren't worth your time.
    2. Don't be afraid to get out of that comfort zone or you're going to miss out on some once in a lifetime experiences.
    3. Having a boyfriend is not as important as you think!

    1. Thanks for sharing. Comfort zones are prison. They can so limit us.

  3. The #1 thing I would say to my younger self is:
    That thing you think you MUST say....because it's exploding inside of you because of anger...or indignation...or frustration. The thing that you think needs to be said and it's your job to say it...that you have a RIGHT to express your opinion....
    THAT thing......is better left unsaid.

    Love your list, by the way! :)

    1. Wow. That probably should have been one of mine too.
