Spread the love

Hey Babe, listen up. 

  1. Be nice to your sister. She will become your best friend. 
  2. When Pilates becomes a thing, start doing it immediately. You will develop cellulite at age 13, and that sh*t is permanent.
  3. Put. That. Cigarette. Down. 
  4. Work at maintaining your friendships. A phone call or a visit with your girlfriends is better for you than a multi-vitamin. 
  5. Your virginity is like a shaken can of soda: when you pop it open, it will explode. Keep a lid on it as long as you can. 
  6. Shaving your head before college graduation is fine; dying the stubble hot pink is not.
  7. Take more naps. 
  8. Eat more pizza.
  9. Your forehead is epically small. Quit trying to make bangs work. 
  10. The rest of the world will be just as outraged at the Joey + Rachel hookup on Friends. Spoiler Alert: She ends up with Ross.
  11. Those glasses might not go anywhere for a while, but the braces and Freshman 15 are fleeting. 
  12. Wear your retainers. Period. 
  13. Only Drew Barrymore can make pencil-thin eyebrows work. Put the tweezers down.
  14. If you must proceed with that tattoo, put it somewhere you can’t see it every day. 
  15. Your first kiss will be terrible. Later kisses will change your life. 
  16. Keep playing the piano. 
  17. You know nothing when you are 21. Or 31. Or, probably, 41. There is always someone smarter than you. 
  18. Breast reduction surgery is the best thing that will ever happen to you. Followed by LASIK. 
  19. Motherhood is heart-wrenching, soul-ripping, impossible, beautiful, and the other best thing that will ever happen to you. 
  20. Snuggle that baby as much as you can, until he no longer fits on your lap. Even then, don’t stop.  
  21. You are doing okay. Keep going. Bad things will happen, and you will recover. 
  22. Cry when you need to. It’s not as embarrassing as you think. 
  23. Love hard.
  24. Keep writing. 

xo, Me
