June 2014 Synchroblog – If I could tell myself one thing –

3 Jun

back in timeWhat do you wish you knew 10 or 20 years ago? If you could go back 10 or 20 years and tell yourself one thing, what would it be?

For the June 2014 Synchroblog, we invite you to travel back in time to the “You” of 10 or 20 years ago and tell yourself something you know now but wish you had known then.

Maybe it is a warning, or a word of encouragement. Maybe you just want to tell yourself to lighten up. Or to stay out of that relationship. Maybe you just want to tell yourself that it will all be okay. Maybe you just want to tell yourself to invest in Apple. Ha!

Obviously, the one thing you tell yourself might be rather short, so for your Synchroblog post, you might also want to share the story of how you learned what you are going to tell yourself. Share how you used to be, what happened, and why you are the way you are now. Give the back story. Explain why you would give the advice to yourself to avoid the pain, hurt, problem, stress, and damage of what you went through.

To participate in this Synchroblog, publish your post on your blog by Tuesday, June 17 and then leave a comment below with a link to your post. The link list will get posted on Wednesday, June 18.

Once the link list is published please copy it and paste it on the bottom of your post so others can access the entire series.

We look forward to reading what you write!

    As I thought about this month’s topic, I realized I had something to share with myself from both 10 years ago and 10 years ago.

      If I could tell myself one thing that thing will be “I need to get much more closer to GOD”

      • Susan Cottrell, FreedHearts August 6, 2014 at 5:31 pm #

        There is no “closer.” You either choose to have a relationship with God or you don’t! When you do, then you’re as close as it gets. ;).
