Day 4: What would you tell your 16 year old self if you could

What would you tell your 16 year old self if you could.

Wow, this topic could go on for ages.
16 years old was not my best year, I'm not sure it is any ones best year actually.
At 16 I hated myself, and practically the whole world. I was experimenting with things I shouldn't have been, and I was terrible to my parents.

If I could go back and tell that scared young woman anything, it would be that God will do for you what you can't do for yourself. To not be so scared of life, but rather embrace it. That you are NOT worthless, you are beautiful. You are perfect and whole exactly how you are. Your parents are amazing, and love you with everything that they are. God loves you, and is there and isn't going anywhere. School is important and you will wish you had done a little better, and tried a little harder.
MOM AND DAD ARE RIGHT. They know what they are talking about! Surprise Surprise. You know absolutely nothing. You will never really know a whole lot of anything. Quit trying to be an adult, with out actually growing up.

But the most important thing I would tell my 16 year old self, is that everything is going to be okay. You are going to hurt a lot. You are going to hate yourself for a little while longer, and life is going to be painful. But it will be okay. God will be there the entire time, and the darkness will subside. Life is good, God is good. Remember that I love you, even though you don't know it yet.

I would never want to go back to being that 16 year old girl. But I also wouldn't change her. My experience at that age is just another part of what made me who I am today.

Today I am truly blessed. God is good.
