Day 4: List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could

 1. Boys are just as lost and confused as you are at this age, but that dose not mean you should let them treat you badly. Stand up for yourself, your a strong confident girl and if people mouth off to you, you don't need to take it laying down. Someday soon a boy is going to say some very stupid things, and hurt you very badly. When that happens, don't go home and cry about it. Slap that kid in the face. Years later, you will regret not doing it if you don't.

2. Enjoy your clear skin while you can.

3. Don't fret so much about your weight. No matter how much you exercise or how much better you eat, you're going to stay pretty much the same size. Don't exercise because you feel like you need to loose weight, exercise because it makes you feel good, healthy and beautiful.

4.You can do hard things. Cultivate a confidence in your own ability to be successful. You are the person in charge of your life, you need to trust in your own ability to do the right thing and make the right decisions.

5. It's ok to admit when you have too much on your shoulders. There is no need to go around crushing yourself under a huge amount of responsibilities and commitments. When the stress gets to be too much, it's ok to let some things go.

6. Babysit even more than you already do. You're awesome with kids, you'll make a difference in their lives.

7. You will go through a terrible heart break, but it is important that you don't avoid it.  You'll learn invaluable lessons because of it and it will lead you to the love of your life and the life you love.  You must be brave through this experience and allow Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ to help you through it.  Do not shut them out or blame them for your trial.  It'll just make it harder.

8. Learn to not expect too much from others.  This will prevent a lot of disappointment and feelings of under-appreciation.

9. You need to figure out a way to detach your self esteem from what other people think of you.  If you don't do this now, you'll be 25 years old and still working on this one...  Learn to be okay disappointing some people sometime.  But never your Father in Heaven.

10. Life will be tough, but it turns out great.
