Evolve,

To My Younger Self

23:40 Sauniya 168 Comments

Looking back at my younger years, there are a lot of things I see and understand completely differently than I did at the time. There is nothing I would change though. Everything I am today is because of all my experiences from the past, good and bad.
There are still a few things that I would tell my younger self.
I saw a few bloggers had a similar post and it motivated me to do one :)

Personal
Fight for what you want, don't be so quick to compromise.
There is no limit to what you can do. Do not ever listen to anyone telling you otherwise.
Be more confident, Believe in yourself.

Relationships
Not everybody is meant for you, you're not meant for everybody and that's OK.
Keep in better touch with the ones you care about.
Time heals a lot. It might not feel like it but there will be other boys.

Life
Don't worry, it gets better.
Appreciate and be more Grateful for what you have.
Life is happening the way it is suppose to, be in the Now.

Goals
Write your goals down, Visualize clearly, Plan, Act.
Just start something, practice makes it better.
You'd never be completely ready, sometimes you have trow yourself out there and see.

More than Anything
I am proud of the value you holding, even so young.
Proud of how creative and ambitious you are.
Proud of everything you've accomplished.

I wonder what this would all sound like to me 10 years from now. I wonder what my future self would think about current self.. but before I get there I'm going to try and live the best life I can, enjoy and learn as much as possible.

What would you tell your younger self?

  12. There so many things I would tell my younger self. I would have definitely not made as many stupid mistakes. One main thing is that "he's a jerk...leave him now!"

  33. I think about this so often these days. To the point where I wish I could go back and do it all again. But that is life and you wouldn't be as wise as what you are today without having experienced such things.

  53. Such an interesting post. I would tell my younger self similar things. There is so much to learn and sometimes you are not ready for what's happening at the moment. Yesterday I knew about a project in Spain where little girls are recording a message for their self in 2036. I think it's very interesting.
