What she’d whisper in the ear of her 15-year-old self

Two things. My life has been so fast-paced, a non-stop adventure! I’ve always regretted not having kept a journal. So one is: “Figure out a way to regularly pause, reflect on, and appreciate your exciting life.” And also: “Listen carefully to other people, especially people different from you. But trust your gut and your own feelings.”
