Dear 18-Year Old Me...

Today's Wego Health Writer's prompt is: Dear 18-Year Old Me...

"Write a letter to yourself when you were 18. Be sure to tell yourself what to do more of, what to do less of, and what you have to look forward to in the next few (or several) years"-Wego Health
                                                                       Hey Brace-face!

Yea, you're so NEVER going to live that down; not never! is pretty cute that you attempt to be "cool" by color coordinating your brace bands every month and yet still I don't know if anyone else besides you actually think it's cool; ha!

I can't believe you're taking so many honors and advanced placement classes. Uber proud of you! Though how you manage to make it through an hour of advanced world history is beyond my imagination.

Now listen up, I've got to get this message across before that white light at the end of the tunnel disappears.

These next points are crucial to your future:

-Get a job and save money for college textbooks
-Go to college when YOU'RE ready not when someone else thinks you should go.

-You know those "rain-pains" you've been having in your wrists and knees? When the doctor laughs in your face because you mentioned early arthritis; tell him 7 years later you could have a lupus diagnosis.

-Smile more, write more, love more, and never stop singing!

-Eat more VEGETABLES, drink more water, and take daily vitamins. (Your body will thank you later!)

-Stop perming your hair; embrace it's natural texture.

Enjoy every moment and treasure every memory!

Oh those days of being young and careless! If you could go back in time and leave a letter to your younger self what would you write? You only get one chance so make it count!
