4/30: 16-year-old self

List 10 things you'd tell your 16-year-old self.

1. Don't worry about trying to be tan. The pain of getting those three per-cancerous spots taken off isn't worth it. And let's face it, you don't get tan anyways.

2. Quit hating Clint. You're going to get married one day.

3. Take a class or two in Spanish. It's a lot more practical than Latin.

4. Don't go to UT just because everyone else is. God is prepared to go to some serious lengths to get you out of that place. It'd be better to just start at Tech, even though you promised yourself you'd never ever go there.

5. Your mom is going to have cancer. And it's ok. God has got it under control and will be so good to your family through all of it.

6. Don't take your crazy fast metabolism for granted. It deteriorates by the year once you hit 20.

7. Keep a journal. There will be so many things that happen to you in the next 5 years and you'll want to remember all of them.

8. Don't compare your talents to others. God gave you the talents He wants you to have. Work them to the best of your ability!

9. You're not going to be a vet. Or a teacher. Or a dolphin trainer. Or anything else you've thought about doing so far. But you'll love what you end up doing!

10. You're a worrier by nature. It only gets worse as the things you worry about get bigger. Don't think of all the what-ifs in life and just take things as they come to you.


  1. What a neat idea! This whole lost is awesome. I so need to do this.

    8 & 10 spoke to my heart!
