Wisdomist Wednesday : My 7 Year Old Self

What would you do if you were to meet your 7 year old self?

Would you warn them of anything?

Would you tell them to take advantage and savor anything that much more?

It’s funny to think, at 7 years old

I was in grade 2, maybe 3 …. the Lion King was the coolest thing, that and watching Full House and Family Matters.

My biggest concern was being good enough, to earn a sticker in school each day and getting the immediate backseat on the school bus.

I couldn’t say I would want to be this age again – while sometimes I HATE the responsibility of being an adult — I do love the independence.

I wouldn’t necessarily warn myself of anything to come, but I would remind myself constantly that when things get tough, your parents have your back like no one else – I would tell myself to laugh as much as possible, at everything.  And be kind, even to those who aren’t kind to you.

Funny enough, I would give my 7 year old self the same advice that I would give my 17 year old self ( I would probably add, stop wearing so much makeup to my 17 year old self) and to my 27 year old self.

Tell me kids, what would you tell 7 year old you?
