What would you tell your teenage self?

As part of the WordPress Bloganuary January challenge, day 1 asks, “What advice would I give my teenage self?” My answer contains a few short words. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Have fun. Stay weird.

The image you see from a 1963 Good Housekeeping ad for Pandora sweaters shows a teenager wearing a comfortable sweater set and wool plaid skirt. She is not the typical young model. Her messy hair, thick glasses, and worn cardigan tell a different story. But there is no denying. She’s confident, she’s weird, she’s herself!
