To Sixteen Year Old Me.

To sixteen year old me..

Right now you think that you are so grown up and that you know it all. You've just finished school, gotten your first full time job, moved out of home and feel like you're on top of the world.. 

I'm here to tell you a few things.. 

Three weeks ago you turned thirty.. Yep I know it sounds so old to you right now and so far away. Believe me when I say that you will blink and miss the next fourteen years. When you get there though you will still feel like a teenager.. You don't know it all at sixteen and you still don't know it now. 

That man that you think is 'the one'.. He isn't. He is going to use you as a verbal and physical punch bag. It makes you a stronger person though. Remember that it's his faults that cause him to lash out, not yours. 

You will go through an anxiety ridden four years.. Don't worry. You come out the other side of it and realise that anxiety doesn't have to control your life. 

Don't let it get you down when you spend five years trying to get pregnant and loose five babies. You will watch most of your friends get pregnant and have their first (& sometimes second) babies and feel like each time your heart is breaking. You do end up with two beautiful children and realise that all that time waiting and the tears were worth it. They will be the best things that ever happened to you. 

Do not dye your hair black! It takes you three years & a lot of money to get back to blonde.. (I know you won't listen because right now you think you know it all..)

All those courses you want to do. The things that you want to learn? Do them now because you will regret that you didn't and you will end up feeling like time is against you when you do finally decide to do them.

You're going to go a long way in the next fourteen years. You will accomplish things that you never thought possible and you are going to realise how strong you really are. It's a roller coaster of a ride but it's going to be so worth it.

Love, A Thirty Year Old You..
