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.

~one

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

~two

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

~three

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

~four

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

~five

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

~six

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

~seven

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

~eight

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

~nine

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

~ten

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?
