What would you want to say to yourself in this ten year old photograph in your hands?
Do you sometimes wish you could turn back time for that purpose?
Here are some things that I would wanna say to that girl in the picture:
Do a lot of what makes you feel whole and good (in my case that was drawing, reading, and taking pictures). That`s not being lazy, but it means valuing and enjoying time and life.
Always have your camera with you and take as many silly or serious selfies and snaps as you feel like, without wondering what anyone might think. It`s important to make an effort to enjoy and savor each of your seemingly boring, ordinary days. Even if things go
wrong. And also and especially the far-from-perfect stuff. Because there is no repeat button in life.
Say yes to adventure or out-of-the-ordinary! That leads to the best memories.
