Top 5 Friday

(i was about 15 here)

Todays Top 5 question comes from Jodie of Scattered Thoughts!

TOP 5 THINGS I KNOW NOW THAT I WISH I KNEW AT 15:

1. That all of the things I thought were 'wrong' or made me 'unhappy' were just silly compared to real life heartache and situations.  (although they felt VERY real at the time)... Had I have had more real life situations to compare to, I might not have been so selfish or whatever I was at 15!

2. To just say no to drugs!  ha ha, sounds cliche, but so true.

3. That to love someone selflessly is so much more rewarding then to love selfishly.

4. That some people really are in your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.  Not all friends and lovers are meant to be forever - some are just here for some of our most important lessons to be learned.  And to not carry the weight of it all on my shoulders when one has to leave or you have to let go of one.

5. That time really is valuable.  You really dont know how long you have, or how long someone close to you has here on this earth.  To not take people and life situations for granted, and to try to see the beauty in every situation, even the most painful ones, because there IS beauty in all of it if you just look.

I would love to hear some of your things you wish you knew when you were 15!  Great question!
