More Stuff I Wish I Had Known Before

After I wrote my post, A Letter to My High School Self, I got to thinking about other things I wish I had known before.

  1. Planners
    1. Day-Timer Avalon, folio size: don’t bother. Don’t going to elaborate. Just don’t.
    2. Franklin Covey Sierra, classic size: it’s not worth it, stick with the desk size Avalon.
    3. Don’t second guess yourself on the Mead Shopping OrganizHer notebook and the Day-Timer Portable Malibu in Rose Gold. They are the right choices.
  2. Crafts by Cori (my side business)
    1. Work through your stash, quit buying!
    2. Lock up the business credit cards so you don’t buy more stuff.
    3. Stick to dishcloths, they are your only constant seller.
  3. Exercise
    1. Don’t stop doing the stretch routine you learned in dance class in high school. You’ll never be that flexible again.
    2. Keep walking, whether it’s the dogs or on the treadmill, especially while working on your Master’s Degree!

    Oh yes, hindsight is 20/20! I’m sure I could think up a pretty good list too. Now that I’m 27 years old and trying to learn to tap dance for a play I’m auditioning for, I definitely would have wished I’d known how important dance would become in my life when I decided to quit in elementary school.

    Hey Cori!

    Oh the things I would tell my younger self… well I always say that all the things I have gone through made me the person that I am today. However there are those small details that would just make life that much easier. Exercising in school would definitely be one of those!

      Oh, I agree. I didn’t touch on the big things because I know they made me who I am. It was the little things that I’m kicking myself over and thinking Why did you stop?
