Letter to my 3 year old self
3 things I wish I knew as a 3 year old
Take more naps
Seriously. Just do it. When you are 3, you snooze out in the middle of a resturant and no one notices. You can sleep during any meeting, you can sleep during anything!
Just imagine, years in the future, being so tired you are getting heachaches, but you can’t go to sleep yet.
So sleep. Just do it. Seriously.
It is an irrefutable fact of nature, that fat babies are cute.
Eat all the food you want. Whole cake? Down the hatch. You are literally a ‘growing child’ and you can eat anything.
Chubby cheeks? You are doing it right.
Toddlers get away with anything. So do anything. Stomp in rain puddles. Play in the mud more. In the end, someone else cleans your clothes, and they think it is cute.
Ice cream all over the face? Not a problem, that is just another cute picture.
Those are the 3 life lessons I wish we knew when we were 3. Here are some bonus tips.
Start studying a foreign language
Invest in the stock market (Google and Facebook are a yes)
Work more on your hand eye coordination (you are going to need it if you want to make the soccer team)
And now, for the only serious point of this article…
Look forward not back
It is easy to look back on who we were, and pick out what we didn’t do, didn’t learn, and feel like we wasted opportunities.
But we didn’t know then, what we know now. And that knowledge was hard won. We had to pass through what we passed through, to learn it.
So take the lessons you learned to heart (take more naps, got it) and look forward to what you will learn next. Try to learn from others, listen to advice, but be easy on your past self. They might just be a 3 year old who doesn’t like to take naps.
