I’ve been trying to keep up with Bonnie Frank‘s #TrueYou Periscope Challenge, but I missed an important one. The one about what you’d tell your ten-year-old self if you could. So I’m sharing mine here instead.
You have much more potential than you realize. Don’t let anyone make you doubt yourself. You are smart enough, strong enough, and creative enough to do anything you want in life. So don’t choose “safe”. Choose “challenging”!
Don’t waste your time worrying. Do your best in everything and let God take it from there. Worrying and second-guessing yourself is an insult to God’s wisdom. Just pray for His guidance in all things and leave it at that.
Live simply. Once you start earning money don’t waste it on things. Use it for experiences – for yourself and later for your husband and children.
Have as many kids as you want. They will bring you so much joy!
Take good care of yourself, or you won’t be able to help anyone else. Speaking of which, start saving young for a rainy day. Monsoon season’s gonna come early for you.
Let your hair grow and don’t bother with makeup in your coming teen years. Youth and health look better than anything in the “beauty” aisle 😉
