If you could write a note to your younger self, what would you write in a few words?

That is a very good question. Don't we all want to be able to do that sometimes? To go back in time and say something to yourself, to make sure you wouldn't make that one mistake, or that you would do something in a better way. But at the same time, it's hard to decide what exactly you could say. I'm sure you could come up with so many things you'd want to say, just like I could.

Maybe I would like to go back and tell myself I should let him go, because he was not treating me right. Maybe I would want to go back in time and make myself realize that some friends were maybe not real friends anymore, but that I just didn't see it at that moment yet. I'm sure you can think of thousands of examples like this. But enough of this; let's focus on the positive for now.

What if you could go back in time and remind your younger self that they should look around more, enjoy the view, enjoy nature and enjoy everything around them. You could tell them to be more aware of the now, to live it and to make their dreams come true now. The most important things I would tell myself is to enjoy everyday and to find the beautiful things in every moment. I would tell myself to not let anyone ruin a moment for me, because that is not worth it. And I would tell myself to let things go, because I always worry too much about things I cannot change.

We can all come up with things we would like to say to our younger selves if that was possible. But when it would actually be possible to do so, would you still want to do it? Or would you realize that maybe we shouldn't tell our younger selves anything? Because when you think of it, I believe that most things that we would like to say to our younger selves, are the things we have learned during rough times.

Maybe we just need those rough times, those difficult periods, because they give us more life experience than anything else in our lives. I think that we should keep on making mistakes so that we can learn from them. Everyone makes mistakes, but when you learn from them you can only win. Learn, and think about what you would say to your younger self, but instead of sharing it with them, which is not possible anyway, keep it to yourself and help the present you grow from it.

I believe this life is about learning, so go live your life and make mistakes. You are doing great.
