    This is really awesome. I’d probably tell my 15 year old self to be careful who you’re around and to take life slower. And to keep doing that YouTube channel cause you’d be rich by now 😂😂

      Those are great ones. We don’t often think about how the people around us have affected or influenced our lives, and not always for the better. Life goes by too fast and just seems to fly by quicker and quicker. Would have been good to know to slow down.

      Even though we can’t turn back time, this is a way of you paying it forward. Very inspirational.

    I love this post idea. Wouldn’t it be great to go back with the knowledge you have now? I’d have done things so differently. However, I would have never gained such knowledge if I hadn’t experienced what I did.

    Thanks for sharing this! “Let go of the idea of perfection. It doesn’t exist. It’s unattainable.” YES 100x!

    Even though, like you, there were hard times I wouldn’t change a thing. I feel like all the experiences I went through molded me into the person I am now and I think I’m pretty awesome. I wouldn’t want to take the chance of messing up who I am now.

    This is a great piece for everyone. I wish I could talk to my younger self and tell her so much. However, without all my negatives and moments I would not be who I am now. I am torn! Great piece

      That can be the issue, can’t it? If you changed the dark or negative times in your life, you wouldn’t be who you are now. I don’t want to change who I am now, but I think I would have got through it better had I known what I do now.

    Very great read! I wish I could turn back time for various. Like you said some of our darkest times make us stronger. That is so true. I would definitely give myself the same advice as you mentioned.

      Yes, it makes us stronger. But sometimes you just wish those dark times could have been a bit more bearable.

    Such good points. I think a common theme as we get older is that we realize we have been too hard on ourselves and that we should have been nicer and gentler with ourselves growing up. Wouldn’t it have been nice if we had realized that then? It was fun reading this post and can’t wait to see what else you share. Best of luck!

    Great post, I respect the fact that your advice is practical to personal growth not event driven or money motivated. It’s the right things to focus on. And you can certainly apply them no for the you 15 years in the future

    Great article. How true it is that most of us when we reflect back to our younger self there is usually at least one thing that we hope we did differently. Thanks for sharing!
