Five Things Friday

Blast from the past.  I recently finished reading "Ten Years Later" by Hoda Kotb, a definite must read, if I must say!  It follows the lives of 6 individuals and how they survived the most astonishing mishaps.  It's really inspiring and puts things into perspective, we've all been in situations that we feel we can never get out of but eventually and things get better with time.  Based on my love of the book, today's FTF is "Ten Years Later" themed.  Be sure to play a long and link your blog in the comments below, I would love to read some of your Five Things Friday.

1.  Ten years ago I was a senior in high school, I was taking a full load of classes while doing some IB (International Baccalaureate) prep.  I was totally stressing out that I had to take all of my IB exams in the early spring!

2.  What has changed the most about me the last 10 years is how comfortable I am with myself.  I was so awkward and self-conscience in high school.  I feel so comfy in my own skin now and I am definitely less hard on myself.

3.  Something I miss about 10 years ago is not having to work!! It was nice not having any responsibilities :)

4.  If I could go back 10 years I would let my younger self know that you're never going to please everyone, the only person you have to please is yourself. 

5.  Where I want to be in 10 years is married (since I'm getting married later this year, ha!), maybe have 1 child and have a stable consulting business.  BUT, most importantly I just want to be healthy and happy and I wish the same for those around me.

**My favorite thing from around the web this week is these inspiration socks! They are so silly but hey who wouldn't want to wear socks with secret inspirational messages.  Picture it: you can be sitting at your desk knowing that inside those shoes are some socks that are routing for you!  I totally want a pair, or hey maybe I can make my own ;)

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. The things we worried about in high school seem so silly now! Gosh it was nice not having to work lol! It's so true that you can't please everyone and in the end it doesn't matter. THE 1 child, it is coming in 10 years! Haha, I would love to have the inspirational socks!
