If you could, what would you tell your 16 yr old self?
I am not really one who watches morning shows anymore, 4 years ago was a different story, but these days my morning viewing hours are taken up getting kids ready to go to school, welcome little ones into my home and then driving all of them to the different school they need to be at. But this morning I turned the tv on, still on the channel from last night, and there was the Today show, and I noticed Donnie Duetch (sp) I used to love his show on CNN, and there was Star Jones...ok I'll bite, you got 1 minute before I flip. The segment was ask the pro's or something like that... I made it in time to hear them weigh in on the topic should obse people pay more, as suggested by an airline CEO recently... Ok I like your answers...you got one more minute. The segment was nearing the end, so in reality they only had a minute :) The closing question was... What would you tell your 16 year old self if you could... Star said, I would tell myself to take better care of yourself, eat better exercise and beware of heart disease it's the number 1 killer of Women, it almost gets us!! Great answer! Donny says, don't be afraid of anything, don't let fear tand in your way, the boogeyman is never as scary as we think he is! Another great answer!! The other lady..no idea who she is...she says don't listen to anyone who tells you. You can't! It's your life be as many things you want to be! Go around them, go over them but never let them block you!! Wow, great answers! Honestly, if only we did think we knew everything at 16, this is great information! So the inspiration for my topic was brought to you by chance and I think it's a great topic...side note this would make a great book, ask the top 100 successful people, all genres of success, what would you tell yourself @ 16, if you could. I'd buy that book! So friends my question to you today...What Would You Tell Your 16 Year Old Self, If You Could? My answer: Just remember, it's ok to say NO, there is no need to feel like you need to please or accommodate everyone. A welcome mat you are not!! Also...Believe in Karma!! :)
