A few years ago, a question was circulating on different social media platforms – “What advice would you give your five year old self?” The answer I gave then, is still the same today; however, I would add:
Be patient with yourself.
Allow yourself to make and learn from mistakes.
Take more leaps of faith.
There’s going to be this thing called social media. Learn to manage it, don’t let it manage you.
Here’s what I originally shared back in 2017 (I believe).
What would I tell my 5 year old self?
You’re going to have some good days and some bad days. Sometimes you’re going to feel like giving up, but you won’t. You’re a survivor. See every moment as an adventure. It will help you through the tough times. Don’t be afraid to take chances. Don’t settle for less than what you want and what you’re worth.
You will always be a little different than others. You’re unique. Embrace it! Travel. Love. Have fun. And ALWAYS put God first. He’s so awesome. The things He’s going to allow you to experience are going to blow your mind. Girl, just enjoy life. And guess what? I love you.

Mine would be ‘Live in the moment. Enjoy being 5, don’t wish away this time hoping to be older. What’s coming will come.’

Love this! I too wasted too much time wanting to be older, which was my wish most of my childhood. Yes, enjoy being five. Honestly, I’m not sure if I really knew how to be five. I was always more mature than those my age.😩 Also, thanks for the reminder to live for today because what’s coming will come.💕
