If I could give a piece of advice to my younger self, it would be to make sure you know what you want and keep your eye on the prize. When you are somewhere between the age of 10 and 13, if you pay attention, you will start hearing girls answer all kinds of question about what they want with, “I don’t know” or “whatever.” Your wants will change, because you are an evolving being. But at any given moment in life, take the time to figure out what you want from your education, your relationships, your job, your lifestyle, and don’t settle. When you’re not sure about something, ask yourself how you will feel about it when you are dying. Don’t let anyone make you think you have to choose between things. It may take some creative thinking, and time and work to get there, but you can have it all. Make sure to move your body every day. Nevermind “pretty,” spend your energy loving yourself and cultivating feeling awesome in your body – self-confidence and self love will make you ooze hot and sexy and keep you happy with or without a romantic partner. Set high standards for lovers and toss anything less to the curb.
