This is your future self writing you a letter. Pay attention and follow the instructions that will be given to you.
The first thing I want to say it that you are in a period of your life that you are free to do a lot of things because you have time.
Use that time.
Instead of being lazy and laying on the couch and sleeping all day go do something fun. Get good at something. Don’t waste time that you can’t get back. You can always be lazy but that doesn’t get you anywhere. When you do school, do school. All the way. No shortcuts. Learn to play piano better. You’re going to need it later.
Remember that your parents are usually right. You can take the time to explain to them things that you need help with.
Learn to love the scriptures. Study them and pray about them. Listen to the Spirit and really try to gain a better understanding of them. Be more confident about things that you do. Yes, you’ll mess up sometimes but be yourself and push through.
Remember that there is never a ‘good enough’. You may meet the requirements sometimes but go further. Go all the way. Don’t just learn enough to get by. Learn all that you can.
Don’t just get good enough at piano, get good at it.
Don’t just get good enough at math, get good at it.
Don’t just get good enough at sports, get good at it.
Don’t just get good enough at guitar, get good at it.
Don’t just get good enough at anything, get good at it.
Take the time you have and do something now that you can’t later.
You are going to end up in a place in life that you don’t want to be in later. Push through and be strong. Be outgoing or it will be miserable.
Love the things you love. Be who your are and not somebody else. Love things you love because you love them and not because someone else wants you to.
Remember to be yourself,
