Things I’d Tell My Younger Self

Hello beauties!

If you could go back in time and tell your younger self the things you know now would you? Would it have made your life easier, better or less stressful in anyway?

Being a teenager feels like it was years ago now that I am in my twenties. I feel as though I have gained valuable knowledge that I could have definitely used back then.

If I could go back and talk to my teenage self, this is what I would say..

Thing’s I’d Tell My Younger Self

Try It!

Explore and Experiment ! Can’t sing but want to join the choir, join it! Dreaming to become an actress, join the drama club! Highschool is our chance to try many new things, so why hold back? You’d be surprised at all the new things you are actually really good at!

Put Yourself Out There

Try new activities, make new friends, try wearing a new style! The options are endless. 

Speak Up!

I was pretty shy in highschool and really wish I hadn’t been so quiet. I wish I had voiced my opinions more and engaged more in class discussions. 

You’re Your Own Worst Critic 

What more can I add to that statement. Believe in yourself and just go with your gut! 

Your Heart Will Get Broken… But It Will Heal 

Highschool lovers barely ever make the final cut. Your first heartbreak will be the hardest but you will pick yourself up and eventually love again. 

The Mirror Lies

Beauty truly comes from within and don’t believe anything different. We all are beautiful and unique in our own ways. Don’t believe everything you hear and see. 

Follow Mom’s Advice

I know how uncool it is to actually speak to your parents about anything in highschool. But guess what, your parents were probably right. My mom is one of my best friends and her advice would have helped me through a lot back then. 

No Dream Is Unattainable

Set yourself reasonable goals and challenge yourself to reach them. Nothing will come to you if you expect to do nothing to earn it. 

Say Yes!

Try something new or do something that scares you. Don’t limit yourself to things just because it’s new or intimidating. It all comes back down to, try, try, try! 

Be Happier!

Don’t sweat the small stuff! You will get over that boy, make new friends and learn from your mistakes. It takes more muscles in your face to frown then it does to smile, so keep on smiling!

Highschool Memories …

Until next time beauties,

  2. i enjoyed reading this so much Shelby. This is great advice for all those young teenagers. You are a very talented and special young lady. ❤️💞💞


  3. Young people get so caught up in the world of high school – when really it’s a place that can be so small and limiting. I wish our younger selves could see the world beyond and know the opportunities are truly limitless. The trials of friendships and boyfriends and even parents when we are young seem so overwhelming….. But it really doesn’t matter how old you are 15, 25, or 45. You need to go out and find “your” happy. No one else can do it for you. Thanks Beena this was beautiful. Love ya

    • So well put as we all learn from our mistakes. High school is a place where we can discover ourselves yet continue to grow and adapt. You are so right, the only person who knows how to make you happy is yourself. Love ya to, xo
