IF I KNEW
You know how you always hear people say, "If I knew then what I know now ..."? Have you ever wanted to say ... yeah ... well ... go on ... So here we go ...
I would listen more carefully to what my heart says. I would enjoy more ... worry less. I would know that school would end soon enough ... and work would ... well, never mind. I wouldn't worry so much about what other people were thinking. I would appreciate all my vitality and tight skin. I would play more, fret less. I would know that my beauty/handsomeness is in my love of life.
I would know how much my parents love me and I would believe that they are doing the best they can. I would enjoy the feeling of 'being in love' and not worry so much about how it works out. I would know that it probably won't ... but that something better will come along. I wouldn't be afraid of acting like a kid. I would be braver.
I would look for the good qualities in everyone and enjoy them for those. I would not hang out with people just because they're "popular". I would take dance lessons. I would enjoy my body just the way it is. I would trust my girlfriends. I would be a trustworthy girlfriend. I wouldn't trust my boyfriends. (Just kidding). I would enjoy kissing. Really enjoy it. I would be more appreciative and grateful, for sure.
