30 Things:: Oh to be 16 again...NOT

Happy Thursday friends! While everyone else is celebrating the fact that tomorrow is Friday I am once again mourning the end to our "weekend" Hubs goes back to work tomorrow.
 
BUT....that does mean it is......
 
 
 
Today is a good one people....
 
10 THINGS I WOULD TELL MY 16 YR. OLD SELF:
 
 
#1: You really don't need an expensive, fancy car and **spoiler alert** you will wreck it.... a few times.
 
#2:  Don't even THINK about moving out in a year, trust me you are too young to learn those life lessons already. ( besides the fact that you will move back in with them a few more times over the next 10 years)
 
#3: Stop making school about socializing and maybe LEARN something!
 
#4: That boy that you know is wrong for you IS in fact wrong for you.
 
#5: You only have 2 years left as a kid because you know those teen moms you always felt sorry for.... you will be one.
 
#6: Enjoy the family time/ trips now because you really will miss them someday.
 
#7: You don't need to wear all those expensive name-brand clothes, you're just wasting your parent's money. ( you will give them all away, out of frustration, in 2 years after having a baby when they don't fit anyways)
 
#8: You are NOT fat!
 
#9: Spend more time with your little sister, she might get on your nerves now but she is going to move away someday and you will miss her like crazy!
 
#10: You are going to have your heart broken a few times, you are going to wonder why God is punishing you, and you will spend way to many years wondering when you will finally be happy. Relax.... this will all make you stronger
** and the answer is: in about 10 years**
 
 
At first I thought this was going to be hard to come up with 10 good things.... now I have about 50 more LOL. Not like I would have listened to ANY of this then..... because I "already knew everything."
 
How about you?

1. Change oil in your car regularly so it doesn't break down :)
2. Learn from your mistakes the first time.
3. Pick up the phone and talk to the people you love, one day maybe sooner than you realize they may not be there to talk to.
4. Don't stay w someone just because it's comfortable, you deserve more.
5. Be comfortable in your own skin.
6. Wait to have kids.
7. Always pay yourself before you pay others, having money in savings for rainy days is invaluable.
8. Don't forget who your real friends are. The sooner you find those who will always have your back the better.
9. Hurt me once shame on you, hurt me twice shame on me! This is going to be a hard lesson later.
10. Take chances and remember if you hit rock bottom the only way to go from there is up.

I am cracking up. Although I didn't have my son until I was 24, every other item on that list applies to me. Every. One. I realize now I knew absolutely nothing, and still don't half the time :)
