Today, I read this fantastic article about ‘what I would say to myself when I was 15’ (click above for the amazing article). Here’s mine:
Dear L’il Shilpa,
Days will not be long enough when you’re older. So get busy living and don’t waddle around. LIVE.
You’ll need your wits. READ.
You’ll need energy. EXERCISE.
You’ll need your creativity. DRAW.
Don’t take anything too seriously. LAUGH.
You will soon develop opinions on everything. But never stop your quest for knowledge. LEARN.
Don’t worry about what others think. They will learn to cope with you eventually. EXPRESS.
Your family and friends are the only people that truly matter. LOVE.
Be HAPPY. Feel IMPORTANT. Be IMPORTANT. There is only ONE of you. CELEBRATE yourself everyday.
