With a new year comes reflection and sometimes reflections
bring us back to our younger selves..
I thought this would be a fun post for this Monday.
I read this article in Oprah's magazine sometime last year
and she recently talked about it again at Huffington Post
on her OWN feature and I thought i would touch on it.
It's things she wish she would have known at 21 years-old....
I know there have been many things we all wish we would have known when we were that age.
Here are some of the things, Oprah would have told herself:
*Never doubt your path
*This too shall pass
*You can be the observer of your life
*You are the artist of your own life--
and can use as many colors and textures as possible (and erase when necessary)
Telling herself these things she says would have saved her a lot of heart ache and self doubt.
But then sometimes the experiences we have become the greatest teachers.
But it's never fun when we are going through it.
|And the fact that she got to meet Jesse Jackson at 21 years-old
and now is more powerful and well know than him is incredible in itself!
Oprah's meanderings got me thinking about what I wish I knew at that age...
because when you are 21years old...you honestly do think you know it all!
So here goes, What I Wish I Knew at 21:
*Choose a career that will allow you to have more time with your children
*The boy you are chasing is not going to be your husband...leave him alone!!
*Start running (instead of just doing aerobics)
*Save more money
*You are bolder now personally and professionally than you will ever be
*Start blogging...it will be fun to look back on the memories
*Wear more high heels (& have fun with fashion)
*Go to hollywood
*Be bold always and do not fear--that will take you far!!!
Now it's your turn...
What do you wish you would have told your 21year-old self?
