Awhile ago, I asked some very special women a question: If you could go back in time and give your 25 year old self advice, what would that advice be? Whether young or old, we could all learn from their advice. Here are 12 awesome answers full of wisdom and experience:
Don’t be afraid to be who you are just because others might disapprove.
“Don’t ever stop.” It’s easy to get settled into something and stop pursuing adventure. Keep going.
Make time for the most important people in life whether those people are children, family, or friends. Spend time wisely.
“Enjoy…the simple things.” Too often we overlook the amazing things in our lives just because they are small or common. Cherish every moment.
Life is short and it’s each and everyone’s job to make the most of what they’ve been given. Just go for it, create a unique life full of laughter.
Great advice, here. Search for meaning in what you do, and find something that makes you excited for the day.
Listen to what the older people in your life have to say. We tend to think as young adults we are smarter than everyone. Listen, and stick to your own feelings. Oh, and always be kind. 🙂
Move on, brush it off, and continue to live.
It’s fine to listen to what the world is saying, but of course, your own judgement is important as well. Don’t do something you’re against just because others are pressuring you.
Again, it’s fine to hear others out, but your opinion and feelings are important as well.
OA here was sending the message to pursue what you desire and not what everyone else is doing around you.
I threw this one in here as a joke. The funniest fact about this quote is that she wasn’t kidding, she was dead serious. 🙂
Thank you for reading this post, and thanks to the women who gave me answers to this question. I hope to spread the wisdom of these amazing ladies so that, perhaps, the younger generations can learn a thing or two. Let’s work to heed their advice. Have a great day 🙂
