In song "Letters to Me" by Brad Paisley...He talks about the things he would put in a letter about his life and lessons learned to be given to himself back when he was 17.


What are some of the things you would write to yourself?


I would have told myself to choose a different career path...and to go to school for what I wanted and not what everyone thought I should do.


I would have said "yes" more to my father when he asked me to go fishing late at night.


I would have worn my retainers more religiously :-)


I would not change who I married, but would have wait till I was a little older.


I woud have kept in better touch with my closest friends from highschool once we left for college.

Oh my goodness, the retainer thing made me laugh. I still have mine, and I wear it when I remember. I took it in for an adjustment (which I really should do each year) and the orthodontist laughed at me! LOL! He was all, "Hey! If it still works, then there's no need to make a new one, but wow!"
