What Advice Would You Give to Your Younger Self?

What advice would you give to your younger self?

I was asked this question in an interview a couple of years ago and felt like revisiting it today. Here’s what I would say:

Don’t get lost in other peoples’ noise and in the race that leads to nowhere.

Work will inevitably expand to take up the space that you give it. Take the blinders off and establish some boundaries so you can enjoy your life and those you love to the fullest.

Remember to breathe. Deeply.

Call home more often.

Remember who you are and check in with your wise inner voice every day for the guidance you seek. It’s always there for you, no matter what.

Chill out a little!

Be kinder to yourself.

Your life is and will always be imperfectly perfect just the way it is. You are perfect, just the way you are.

I love you!

What would you say?
