Do you remember what you were like when you were 18?
I was pretty sure things would flow very smoothly and I’d be well on my way to…well, I don’t know what exactly, but I was sure I’d be on the fast track to something.
But, as you know, life has a funny way of working out and, for me, it’s taken many turns and detours that I couldn’t have seen coming.
It’s all good, but I still wish I could go back in time and give my 18-year-old self some advice to make things a little bit easier, which I’m sure a lot of you do, too.
This tweet was thrown out to folks and it got them thinking…
