What would you tell you?

It's easy to get inspired by Pinterest and blogging in general. And that's exactly what happened to me yesterday. I came across Heather's blog post and I thought...gosh, if I knew what I know now!

Here's what I would tell a younger version of myself:
  1. Don't marry for the big white dress and wedding. Marry because you're ready - even if that means you're the last of your friends to walk down the aisle.
  2. Credit cards are not your friend...stay away and use only for emergencies. Friday night closet raids are not an emergency.
  3. Moving in with someone before marriage is always a good idea. Trust your instincts.
  4. Stop starving yourself. It actually slows down your metabolism, genius.
  5. You should take more business classes @ Iowa. They will come in handy.
  6. If you feel like your friendship with someone is one-sided...it probably is. It can't be all you giving with no return.
  7. Stop drinking cheap wine. That's why you're puking the next morning. Oh and you should probably eat before drinking...see #4. 
  8. You should live on your own before you move in with any man. Trust.
  9. If you want to be something or pursue a certain career goal - go for it! The time is now...no strings attached.
  10. You will conceive and have kids...stop worrying.
  11. Travel, travel, travel. You should do more of it and often.
  12. Be nicer to your parents - they will always have your back.
  13. Don't even consider dying your hair brown. That would be a mistake.
  14. Floss more.
  15. Ask for that raise. You deserve it. Don't be a human door mat.
  16. Take a chance. Take a risk. Don't worry what others think - that's the only way you'll grow.
  17. Don't date a man on the rebound - especially one who just had his heart broken. You can't be her.
  18. If you're going to get a tattoo...put it somewhere you can conceal it. 
  19. Remember you're brother is 6.5 years younger than you. Give him a chance...he'll catch up to you.
  20. Do what you love if you're going to have to work everyday.
  21. You don't have to be a stay-at-home mom if you don't want to.
  22. Sometimes what you're searching for is right under your nose!
  23. Visit your parents more often.
  24. You'll grow out of this whole "designer denim" trend - don't buy so many pairs, sister!
  25. Buy Apple shares. {courtesy the husband}
  26. Always be able to support yourself - don't rely on anyone else.
