Letters to My 20 Year Old Self

I saw this on another blog I follow and how she saw it another blog she followed. Basically the blogger asked all her readers to write a letter to their 20 year something selves to see what kind of wisdom and advice these bloggers could convey to younger bloggers. I just want to write a letter to my 20 year old self to look back on it later and possibly laugh at the advice I gave now!

Myself at 20.

Dear Self,

Get it together, quit skipping class with your 'friends'. Those friends won't actually graduate, you will and you're only causing yourself heartache in the long run by making graduation one step further away. You're wasting your money, time, and being a pain in the butt. Just get it together finally!

Don't be such a workaholic. Enjoy time with your friends and loved ones. Putting money in your bank account isn't always the most important thing in life. Sometimes it is important but don't try to work your life away. Stop and enjoy your younger years. They will fly by and before you know it, you will look back and wish you enjoyed them more.

Enjoy the dating part of your relationship with the Mr. Don't dwell on getting married. Don't pick silly fights and enjoy each other at the age you are. You will never get this time back.

Love with all your heart. You will learn in the next couple of years who your true friends are and how important your family is to you. You will learn it is OK to be vulnerable and humility makes you a stronger and more mature person. Learn from your mistakes and try not to make them twice. Worry less and slow down in life. Take every day as it comes because it is a gift.

If you could look back, what would you say to yourself?
