10 things i would tell my 16 year old self

  1. your worth is not contingent upon someone else's opinion. ever.
  2. you are exactly who God created you to be and it is a beautiful Masterpiece in His eyes. 
  3. never say never.
  4. be careful who you trust with your heart in matters of love & friendship.
  5. stay away from gossip. learn this skill sooner rather than later- it will save you a lot of heartache and trouble.
  6. think carefully before you react. remember to most often think with your brain not your heart.
  7. when you have kids, work hardest at not losing it so much. you will want them to know how to be kind and patient and slow to anger. you are going to have to demonstrate these skills in order for them to be learned.
  8. make it a priority to save money & do all you can to stay out of debt. this is so important!
  9. you know a lot less than you think you do.
  10. you do not have to eat the whole coconut pie even though you want to!

"Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
