It is always weird looking back when you are provided with a question like this as you are not sure what you would actually say – especially to a ten year old – can you imagine speaking to yourself that young it would be weird and also you would more then likely be freaked out. Imagine, would it do you any good, would it put too much pressure on you to become your future self or disappoint you. Anyway, let’s ignore all of that and think of somethings that may be good to tell your past self.
Have fun – Have fun in life and try and embrace as much good as you can! When you are enjoying something, try and enjoy it to the ultimate limit
