What would I tell my 15 year-old self, if I could?

This exercise was put forth over at Gapers Block. I found the comments very interesting seeing a mix of shared insight, missed opportunity and painful regret. So I thought really hard what I would tell myself, and I realized I wouldn’t focus on any one event. I find my missed opportunities and my past transgressions make me and I prefer to live in the present.
But if I could, I would tell the 15 year old me:

  • Put more at risk.
  • Always look for the good in people.
  • When you commit to something give yourself completely.
  • Breath, be still and don’t worry so much.
  • (okay one specific event)Go to the Nirvana Concert!!!!!!!!

More importantly,
If I really could I would tell the 10 year old me, don’t play king of the dumpster, don’t push your sister.

One thought on “What would I tell my 15 year-old self, if I could?

  1. What would I tell myself?

    I would say, Tony, “ASK HER OUT! Then have your way with her.”

    That way, years later, you wouldn’t hear in response to “why didn’t we ever go out,” “you never asked.”

    So, ya, I guess this is “Put more at risk.” in different words.
