advice to my 16 year old self


-        - spend less time constructing an outward image, and more time cultivating a happy spirit. work on yourself, who you want to be, how you want to treat others. be more introspective & stop caring so much about what other people are thinking about you.

-         also, take it easy on the mac eye shadow. you’ll have plenty of time for a full face of makeup when you’re older.

-        make your relationship with god a number one priority. that bond makes your life 110% better, and you’re going to want it to fall back on.


-         don’t be shy, and don’t be afraid of asking for what you want. be bolder, be more curious. the answer is always no until you ask.

-          for heaven’s sake, make curfew every once in a while! it will make your life a lot easier.


-          stop trying to categorize yourself by high school standards. break the mold, be an individual, don’t limit yourself. just do the things you love, let the rest fall into place.

-          most of the boys you obsess over? you’ll probably never talk to them again after high school. spend your time accordingly.


-          do not dumb yourself down for anyone, anywhere, ever. the people you feel the need to dumb yourself down for are not worth your time.

-          keep having fun and acting like a lunatic and making up stupid dance moves and being hyper. life is more fun that way.


-          lastly, care a little more about being classy and a little less about being trendy. learn a few things about money and finances. and be a little nicer to your parents, you’ll like them a whole bunch better in a few years J

  2. Your blog is so cute! And I thoroughly enjoyed this post, sounds like something I wished I knew as a 16 year old! Funny how things that used to really matter no longer matters as we get older.
