Dear Younger Me by Mercy Me is a song that often comes on the radio while I'm in the car and it gets me thinking.... what would I tell my younger self. My younger self that was pre-hubby,pre- kids, pre-adult. Here it goes.
Dear Younger Me.....
*Take the nap! For real.
*Tell your parents you are searching for that deeper relationship with God not abandoning what they've instilled inside your heart
*Compliment your sisters so that you can grow closer together
*Write more often. Keep journals.
*Only date boys who truly respect your beliefs and are ok with your being a "good girl"
*A little bit of adventure is ok. Don't always play it so safe.
*Tell people how you REALLY feel when they ask
*Start swing dancing earlier than 23, you LOVE it!
*Invest. Not money. But invest in things that matter to you.
*See the good in everyone because it's there. Sometimes you just have to look a little harder to see it.
*Stretch because girl you are paying for that now. :)
*EAT HEALTHIER!!!!!!! You'll thank me later for this one.
*Love. Love your Lord first. Love yourself, I mean really love yourself. Love your family and friends. Love all that you do. And only say I love you when the time and the one is right.
I'm sure this list could go on forever. What would you tell your younger self?
