dear 16 year old me...

There have been quite a few thought provoking blog

entries this week from some wonderful bloggers,

this one really hit home with me - Wendy has a blog

called Red Boots - she is a very charming young woman.

She wrote a blog entry titled dear 16 year old me - that

really struck a chord with me. Almost everything she

described was me at that age. Ever since I read

that I have been wondering what I would say to

my 16 year old self, I haven't figured it out yet

but it would definitely fill several pages.

Stop by Wendy's blog to read what she wrote and

one of her friends wrote - they are wonderful!

What would you say to your 16 year old self?

Now there's an interesting question. I wonder if I would recognise my 16 year old self if I passed her in the street and if I did, what would we talk about. Very thought provoking!

I love this....a book came out recently on this exact subject over here, letters to my 16 year old self....such an interesting idea.

What would I say to mine....oh, so much!

Will check out Wendy's blog.

Happy Friday Cathi :)

Thanks for the shout out Cathi!

I've been thinking more and more about my letter I wrote, and I think I have a lot more to add to it every day. Maybe one day when I have children I will write them a letter for their 16th birthdays.

Have a good day!

Loving this. This was one of the neatest things I have read!
Have a wonderful weekend.

What a wonderful idea! My father died when I was sixteen, so I was a mess then. I would tell that girl I was to just hold on and to surround herself with people who understand; she WILL make it. You've given me a lot to think about this Friday morning, my friend!

Have a beautiful weekend. xo Gigi

Mmmmm, I'm not sure.
I've always said that I would never change anything that I did so, probably not a lot. You shouldn't change the mistakes that we made. They are what make us who we are and we learn so much from them. XXXX

I think I want to write a letter to 60 year old me, but I'm afraid I won't remember myself by the time I read it. LOL

Awesome! Dear 16-year-old Me: Travel more, eat more, love more, worry LESS! :-)
