There is so much I would tell the younger me. I would want her to know that she is beautiful and that she should always believe in herself –no matter what! I would tell her to keep God first because she will have to walk through some challenging times. As I think back, I’m getting teary-eyed because what I want to say to her today is the encouragement I prayed for.

I took this question to Facebook and the responses were amazing. Here’s what our friends said:

Forgive yourself for the mistakes you have already made, ask God for forgiveness and keep yourself pure. Pay attention to every word people say and even more so to the words they don’t. Save 20% of every paycheck, never miss an opportunity to sow into good ground. Start your own business with your 20%, invest and watch it grow.
DO NOT compromise. If you know it’s right or it’s wrong, hold firm to it. Trust yourself.
Spend every moment you can and make memories with your dad. God does indeed have something bigger in store when He says no, ask Him for the strength to move past it as quickly as you can, He won’t always tell you why it was a no, but I assure you, He can be trusted with every single thing you are about to face. Live life fully.

Cl Gibson Avoid paying rent for as long as you can. Avoid loans and credit cards. Save up as much money as you can… Read personal development books. (Rich Dad, The Richest Man, John Maxwell etc). Get your education to build your business. Create something that will continue to pay your kids after you’re gone…Lastly put yourself first, plenty of time for relationships later!
Catina Ferguson Life is filled with ups and downs. There are going to be people who love you and those who will betray you. This has nothing to do with you but everything to do with them. Even when you fall keep going and never give up because there is beauty on the other side of the struggle. God loves you and his plans for you are much greater than those you have for yourself. Be kind to everyone because the same people you see on your way up, you may see again on your way back down. Stay focused, save 10% and give 20% for the work of the Kingdom, your reaping days will come. Finish college because even though your degree may not be your calling, knowledge is something no one can take from you. Travel the world, it’s so much larger and more diverse than your little country is. Anything you can conceive you can achieve. Walk fearlessly and with boldness…Be honest, integral, submissive and repentant. Make happiness a lifestyle YOU GOT THIS!!!
