What I Would Tell My 18 Year Old Self

What Would You Tell Your 18 Year Old Self

When you’re 18 everyone tells you the things they think you need to know. ‘Reach for the stars’ they write in your birthday cards. They arm you tried and tested quotes like

** ‘life’s a marathon not a sprint’ and ‘be the change that you wish to see in the world.’


Thanks guys - but whilst this may have filled us with hope and positivity, come our mid-twenties we're reminiscing about those birthday cards and we kinda wish someone just told us what was really about to happen.

Or maybe it’s more fun to figure it out ourselves.

Either way, if I could go back and sit down with my 18 year old self this is what I’d tell her…

1. Your family are actually the best friends you will ever have.
