Looking Back

I look back at my life time and wonder if I could go back and talk to my fourteen year old self what would I say. There are things I would definitely like to tell her although I don’t think I would really have listened. I would tell myself to never go on a diet as dieting will just make you get heavier and heavier and you will be constantly battling yourself. Don’t drink Diet Coke, it is so bad for you. Not everyone is going to like you, don’t even think about those people and get on with your life. Your thoughts create your world, think positive thoughts all the time. Mediation will change your life, make time to do it everyday. I do wonder though where I would be now if I even changed those few things about myself. Would I have the same life, would I have learnt the same lessons, would I be happier than I am now without that knowledge. I consider that maybe each thing I have learnt was learnt at the exact right moment that I was meant to learn it and that is why I am who I am today. Would trying to change the future with small bits of information create a really different future or would it not really make that much of a difference in the grand scheme of things. If I could go back to being a teenager now with the knowledge I have now, would that make for a very different future and I don’t mean being able to invent something that would make me rich and famous. I mean the life lessons I have learnt, the spiritual lessons I have learnt. I think I would handle bad situations a lot differently and I would treat myself better if I got to do it all again knowing what I know now. It makes you wonder about this fabulous life and what a gift it truly is.
