Dear younger Meghan,

Monday, October 27, 2014

I wonder if this letter will be read by 12 year old Meghan, who is awkward and doesn't have a lot of self-confidence or by 16 year old Meghan who wore jeans with sneakers to school on the reg and had no clue it wasn't okay. Or maybe 13 year old Meghan who thought she looked weird in ponytails so she only wore her hair down and straight.
8th grade graduation...I had finally broken the straight hair streak!

No matter what age you are, I want to tell you to have more confidence in yourself! You have your own style and thats okay! You look fine with your hair pulled back, and it doesn't have to be perfectly straight. You are smart and you should let your guard down so more people can see how funny you are (relatively speaking). Don't be afraid of being a little more outgoing and get over the horrendous shy quality of yours. Although, you did play that mysterious card well (actually more like the weird card). 
Start your blog sooner! You have literally wanted your own website since you were 10 years old, so I don't know why it will take you until you are 21 to actually hit publish. Also, stop telling yourself/others that you aren't creative. Creativity isn't just like painting and drawing, but it is things like makeup and this blog! Embrace your love of makeup, and don't be afraid to experiment a little more with it!
Me at my 16th birthday dinner..see the cherry cola red hair?

Also, a few more things. Don't dye your hair red for the swim team for states. Eat yogurt. Try to like more fruit. Get in the habit of painting your just makes you look so much more polished (get it??). Most of all, just BE YOURSELF! 

 Older and a little bit wiser Meghan

What would you tell your younger self?

P.S. I took the weekend off from my computer...hence the reason why I slacked on posts! Back on track now for the last few days of #Blogtober14! Also don't laugh too hard at these pictures!

  1. "it makes yourself look more polished" haha--good pun :)
    Great advice to your younger self. I really enjoyed this blogtober topic today :)

  2. Great post! I totally wish I started my blog sooner! Looking back I could kick myself since I love to write! :)

  3. love this post! I definitely would have told myself a lot of the same things. & what is it about wanting straight hair?! I was obsessed with the same thing and straightened it every single day of life and totally fried it.

  4. Love this letter, you wrote it well. I died my hair red for states for swimming too, ooooops!

  5. Meghan I love your blog!! I love the gifs! Also, those little tips (nails, fruit, yogurt)... still working on those and I'm pushing 25 in December. Adulthood SUCKS.

  6. I love that you would tell your younger self to be more confident in who she is! I think no matter how old we are we need to hear that. I think I've actually lost confidence as I've grown older, or maybe that's just the phase I'm going through right now lol
