A Letter To My 7-Year Old Self

If I had the knowledge I know now, maybe my childhood would be different.

A Letter To My 7-Year Old Self

By the age of seven, your body has fully generated entirely new cells, making it as if you are a new person.

Dear 7-year-old me,

You are still very young and not very aware the concept of money, time, and other "adult"-like things everyone should know. However, you do have a wide imagination—something every adult wishes to have. Imagination is something that should be kept and appreciated, not only does it make you unique but overall more rounded with humor as well as maturity when you grow older. I hope you can appreciate what others do for you more. Always say please and thank you, please do not ask for more junk food. (when you're 12, you will learn about over consumption of sweets anyhow) and finally, read more books. It broadens your vocabulary and expands your memory. Please continue to be social to everyone, never leave anyone out because they are not 'cool', always get your work done and keep a smile on your face. Your grandparents should be valued. Never think you are better than hanging out with elders. (that's called being a dick).

And finally, do not forget you are very lucky and loved. Always appreciate these things.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.

I personally love using song lyrics as my Instagram captions, especially from songs that I love or that mean a lot to me, and I happen to love Harry Styles and all of his songs! So I made a list of lyrics from each of his songs that you could use in your next Instagram caption.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.
