30 Things: Number 4

Day 4: List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could.

1. Don’t settle for the first one that comes along.  You can do MUCH better!

2. There is no rush.  For anything.  Take your time, make up your mind, but explore your options (and have fun doing it).

3. Travel.  More.  By yourself.  With friends.  With family.  See what’s out there.

4. Cheerleaders look like they have it made.  They don’t. They are highly overrated.  And they will get fat eventually.

5. Ignore bullies.  They are nasty, mean, run at the mouth and lack class.  They probably know that already.  Just feel sorry for them and move on.

6. Spend more time with your friends.  Your good ones.  Be there for them and they will be there for you.

7. Following the crowd is weak.  Set your own high standards and let them follow you.

8. Be more observant and look around you.  Pay closer attention to details.  Soak it all in.

9. You is kind.  You is smart.  You is important.  See video link below.

10. Determine your own bucket list, but keep adding to it.  Experience life.

Do you ever leave comments on other people’s blogs?

I’m running out of ways to tell someone I love their quilt.  I find I’m using the words “beautiful, gorgeous and awesome” far too much.  Then I remembered that sometimes it’s good to visit the thesaurus.  If you’re like me, visit http://thesaurus.com/browse/beautiful?s=t  and look around.  Wow! 

Your quilt is magnificent… wonderful… impressive… majestic… dainty… heavenly… pretty… divine… and on and on.

So don’t limit yourself… Get thee to your thesaurus and expand your vocabulary!  Just don’t tell someone they have a peculiar or hairy quilt.  Some adjectives are better left alone.
