Advice to my younger self.
Less is more.
Find harmony and sanctuary within.
Find my self in the things that I do, not by doing things to find my self.
Learn what simplicity is.
Learn that simplicity is!
Don't hurt yourself over something like that. You were and are beautiful an you didn't have to make that turn. Just think about the people who love you and you'd be fine. Everyone loves you don't worry.

Be more attentive to your computer classes, it will pay off.

Dear Candace, you are so unique, funny and smart. Oh and yes, you are very pretty. However, your looks do not define your value. You have so much more to your character, than the physical. Put down the money and the attitude, you don't need it. It's...
I would tell myself to stand firm on your beliefs, your morals and your convictions. People will come and go in your life. Do not give up any part of yourself to someone else. A true friend would never ask you to anyway.
It does not matter how much you want love, learn that you ARE love, what you send out, you get back.
You create much of your own reality, so, be kind to yourself.
Be busy entertaining peace and avoid drama, embrace tenderness and gentility in your life always.
It is your...
and independent before moving out of my parents. I hate that when I look back I can't say I was ever self sufficient, now I'm trying to prove that I can take care of myself and my children without a man.
In no particular order:
*Don't be so self-conscious.
Alanis Morissette said it best-
I wouldn't have compromised so much
so much of myself for fear of
having you hating me
I would've sung so loudly
it would've cracked myself!
I became self-conscious

Chill Kid, you know you have a mellow heart; enjoy this day; share happiness with your family and friends; make new friends; don't dwell on what's past but remember the good times; don't worry about the future - it all works out; three cats are enough - get a dog.
when they say focus on school over boys." Don't get me wrong I did excellent in school, but if you are like 11 trying to already seriously date you have hurt after hurt until your chemicals are unbalanced for life. There's a reason most parents want a dating age. Immature minds...
and worst are yet to come. Don't try to prepare or change things. Live in each moment whatever that moment brings. Let the past stay there and don't look to tomorrow. Enjoy today. Some days are good some are bad. No matter how bad a day is it is not worth revisiting tomorrow.

Life is all about risks so take that chance otherwise you will regret it!

Intellect can't save you from pain
Never regret your mistakes
Give Up trying to control it all

now won't matter in 5 years. That not everyone you think will be around forever is. Cherish every moment as it comes and don't worry about tomorrow. Moments soon become memories and not every memory can be lived. Give second chances, accept that the past is passed and you can't...

4. do more illegal drugs and don't...
Dear younger me,
I miss you. I miss being you. I know you are still in here somewhere. I still feel your presence sometimes, hidden in the dark, like a ghost in the shadows.
When I'm not too busy being the adult me I still try to "be" you. ...

Don't ever smoke a cigarette. I don't care how cool and grown up looking it is, cigarettes are the devil.
Don't color your hair. Ever. As addicting as smoking, and almost as expensive.
Don't ever loan anything you want back, or want back in...
