I too, like a lot of other bloggers that I follow, am hopping on the trend train here ((again!!)) with this post. I’ve seen a lot of bloggers doing this post, and so I thought I would too!! Sounds fun!

Dear Teenage ME-
You are such a dreamer. You have some pretty large dreams. People are laughing at you, and it’s frustrating. But, you’ll go for your dreams anyway. Things don’t end up happening how you wanted them to. But it’s okay. You gave it your all. You did it, and you didn’t give up. Keep dancing.
Stop being so nervous about college. You are going whether you like it or not. You will end up living on campus for your entire college career except that last year. You will make some amazing friends. Two of them will be in your wedding…and your groom is not going to be that kid your dating now.
About that. The two of you are completely wrong for each other. You will find that out late in the game. But, whatever. The high school sweetheart thing is not going to work for you. You are a totally different person now. But don’t fret…you find new love really shortly after the breakup. Don’t stress that it’s too soon, because this is real. He’s the one.
Follow your heart. Stop stressing about making everyone else happy. Focus on you. Follow what your heart is telling you… and life will just slowly fall into place. Trust me.
Ditch those “fair weather” friends. I know, I know… you’ve been friends with them since grade school. You are better off without them. If they don’t accept the woman you’ve become, they don’t need to be your friend.
Keep your family and true friends close. There will be a few things that happen where you will need your family and your close friends for support. Be a good friend, be a good daughter. Don’t burn your bridges.
