What would you tell your younger self?

what would you tell your younger self?

If we could go back in time, for only one minute - what would you tell your younger self?

It could be written as a list that would serve you well growing up, even till this day.

A list of things written on a piece of paper for teenage You to read when needed - in times of self doubt, fears or worries. To make sure you stay focused and to keep you walking your own path.

A piece of paper that would bring You back to the future. What would you say?

I’ve made a list of 10 things I would write to my younger self, that would serve me - and I hope you too - even today.


Believe before you See. Visualize what you want to achieve, as if it already has happened.


Keep dreaming Big Dreams & don’t listen to naysayers. Write them down, pen to paper. Let the words flow without interference.


Create realistic Goals. This will set you up to achieve them. Then take Action on each one, step by step.


Offer your Help, your Smile or Energy to others in need - especially when you have enough.


Take care of Yourself. Your Body and Mind are the first to let you know when it’s time. Listen.


Count till ten. And somedays till 489. Breathe deep, take a walk outside. Sleep. Then start again the next day.


Always trust your Strengths and keep Believing in your Faith & in Yourself. Remember, you come from a strong line of Women.


Failure is a Lesson. A stepping stone to success. Know that you tried & left your comfort zone. That’s how you Grow.


Beware of what you Feed your Mind and Soul, through what you Read, Listen to and See. Absorb Positive Energy only.


You were Made Ready when you were born. No matter what life throws at you, You are not alone.

So now I wonder - Would You write to your younger self?
