Dear younger self…

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!

Get Fat

It is an irrefutable fact of nature, that fat babies are cute.

Get messy

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.

You just can’t do this as a 25 year old.

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.
