If I Could, I Would

If I could talk to my younger self, I would make that young girl understand just how short life really is. I’d tell her that every minute of every day counts for, or against, something.

I’d insist that she be true to others but especially to herself, and not to worry so much about what others think about her. I’d instruct her to be faithful to God and serve Him, even when life hurls meanness and confusion her way. I’d tell her to make better decisions and think of the consequences before committing to anything, or anyone.

I’d be adamant that she be a better listener, a better mom, a better friend, to love even deeper, to serve others, and live life more compassionately…and with far less judgment.

And I would tell that girl to dream bigger and work harder to make her dreams reality. I’d want her write more often and spend as much time outdoors as possible.

And lastly, I would insist that she not compromise or settle for less than who she is, or what she deserves.

These are just a few things I’d share with her. I would hope she’d listen.

What would you tell your younger self?

                    Yeah… I miss writing. So I’m trying to have a blog about me. Something that hopefully can blend everything about me and make sense. Poetry, faith, thoughts and if I share a questionable picture it wouldn’t be weird. John in a blog…
