Life Lessons I’d Share with My Younger Self
I love country music, and there’s one song in particular that I love to listen to because it causes me to reflect. It’s Brad Paisley’s song Letter to Me. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s about a man who thinks about his life and what he would’ve wanted to say to his younger self at the age of 17.
I think the reason why this song resonates with me and why I think it’s such a compelling idea to be able to have a talk with our younger selves is because as we go through life, we obviously learn many lessons along the way. As teens, we all likely felt pressured and cornered into our lives as if there was no way out of the circumstances, ever. Things always seemed so permanent back then.
I can’t help but wonder how much easier teenage life would’ve been had I known some of the things I do today.
So this got me thinking about some of the most important life lessons I’ve learned along the way.
Join Suzie as she explores the following life lessons she’s learned along the way:
- Confidence originates inside not outside. No amount of highlights, makeup or clothing style is going to give you the confidence a strong inner spirit can.
- You can’t force what isn’t meant to be. What is meant to be, will be. What isn’t meant, will never be.
- Have a great Plan A, and even a little plan B on the side. Hone in on something you’re good at, and then add a secondary element.
- Take care of yourself first so you can take care of others. This is not selfish. It’s called being prepared.
- Everything is temporary. Appreciate all the gifts now. Tomorrow may be too late.
