A note to my younger self


They say hindsight is a great thing and when you have gone through teenage heartbreak ,new jobs , rubbish times in your life and come out the other side you can immediately see what you would have changed if only you had known ! Now , I am a great believer in the saying “things happen for a reason ” and that we can learn from every experience we have but they are so many things in life I could have saved time on if only I had known then what I know now !


  1. Do what you love ( even if others thing its weird ! )
  2. Never change yourself for anyone , a true friend will love you no matter what
  3. It is ok to cry
  4. It does not matter what dress size you are
  5. Exams are not the be all and end all of  life
  6. Your heart will always heal 😉
  7. You do not need 100’s of friends , just a few close ones
  8. Do not be afraid of change , embrace it
  9. If they make you cry then they are not for you
  10. You are stronger than you think
  11. You can do ANYTHING you put your mind to
  12. Never let others decide for you
  13. Embrace the fear
  14. Enjoy every minute of your life

I think that we never truly find out who we are until we stop caring about what others think , that one piece of advice has come to me late in life and I wish I had the sense to realise that a lot younger !

What is the one piece of advice you would give your younger self ?

    Some fantastic advice. I’m sure if future me wrote a letter to younger me, I’d have ignored it saying what does he know lol
