  • I would tell myself to listen to my father and take the money instead of the husband that turned out to be exactly what my father said he was. Parents bribery is not always a bad thing!

  • I'd tell myselft to make better decisions about relationships and be more appreciative of my parents. It still amazes me how much smarter my Dad is now that I am also a father.

  • HAHA! I would tell myself, "be the change you want to see in the world"... b/c if you don't lead by example, nobody follows!

    Also, I would tell myself to cherish the "sweet nothings", the simple things in life... and to greatly appreciate every moment you have with each person you befried, and are family to. Nobody lives forever, so make every moment count. And lastly, I would tell myself just b/c I am having a bad day, doesn't mean I need to make it worse for everyone else.

  • Y'all are very wise.

    In addition to suggestions about health issues,investments and relationships,I'd include some grooming and fashion tips.

    I'd tell my younger self that Sun-In WOULD make me look like a movie star - H.R. Pufnstuff.
