22 Things I Would Tell My Younger Self

I'm just now coming into myself and adjusting from my teenage frame of mind to an adult frame of mind. In fact I'm still trying figure out the steps to proper adulting. Every so often I reflect on my life and think, man I wish I knew this earlier, or I wish I would have done this better. So now looking back here are twenty-two things I would tell my younger self if I could acquire a time machine and transport back to the age of... 16

   2. Wasted potential is one of the saddest things to witness
   3. If you keep saying tomorrow it may never come

     7. Own your decisions completely
     8. Never forget that feeling is always temporary
