This past week I have been missing my mother a lot. This always makes me nostalgic. Somehow I started thinking how my life is so much more different than I ever envisioned it would be. I started thinking if I would give my little sisters’ advice what would I tell them and then If I could have told myself something from the future what would it be? (I was NOT smoking weed I promise). Anyways, I’m never one to publicly humiliate myself (alone) so I roped in some friends to share words and pictures of them then and now and also some Words of Wisdom. I found them VERY cute, some funny and others downright honest. Feel free to leave your Words of Wisdom in the comment section.

There will always be ‘trying’ times… when you feel helpless, sad and as if the world is against you. But for every moment of despair, there have been a million moments of happiness. Though it may be difficult, find comfort and never forget those moments that made you smile.
Let me start by saying yes that is me and yes I used the bikini pic. Do you see the picture on the left? Here we go:
Your dad lied. You were ugly. But it wont be that way forever. Boys will like you but you still can’t figure out how to make them love you. You’ll always miss your mother (that feeling will NEVER go away) but you’re strong you’ll deal with it. You’ll lose many friends, but the ones who stayed are now family. NOTHING in life will go as you planned, I’m serious there won’t be a baby by 27 and that’s fine.
Please lose the baby hair and NEVER WEAR PLAID AGAIN.
Life: Remember how you said you wanted to live in NYC for 3 years? Here you are, headed home on the LES bus. Come July ’11 it will be 4yrs. You live in manhattan, you’ve worked at MTV, you’re now at BET… just like you wanted, just like you said. No, it isn’t all that you dreamed it would be.. Nothing is.. You’ve been blessed & cursed with a way too active imagination … The only things that exceed your expectations are the surprises. BUT the beautiful lesson is – You can do anything you want to! Don’t be afraid of your dreams… continue to dream big, work hard & believe in yourself. You. Are. Amazing.
An ode to my sister in Japan. To the outside world we all grow old. But not to each other. We know ourselves as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.
Hoped you enjoyed!!!
