Freestyle Friday: What Would You Tell a 10 Year Old You?


This might seem like I’m dwelling on the past, but I am of the opinion that it is never too late. Your inner child is still in there. If it needs healing, why not tell it what you would have liked or needed to hear all those years ago? Who knows, it might just be what you needed to hear now as well…

To get you thinking, here are the top 10 things that I would tell a 10 year old Laveena:

  1. Actions speak louder than words, trust your gut
  2. Speak up, your opinion matters as much as anyone else’s
  3. Love yourself completely and unapologetically
  4. Do what makes your heart sing, because you only get one shot at this life
  5. You have immeasurable value to contribute to the world, don’t let anybody tell you what you’re worth, or what you’re capable of
  6. It’s OK to say no… to EVERYONE. You do not have to accept bad behaviour from people just because they are related to you
  7. Laugh as often as you can, especially at yourself
  8. Try everything, even if it’s scary
  9. Treat every obstacle as an opportunity to learn something new, and to see what you’re made of
  10. Heavy metal will change your life

So what would you tell yourself?
