Advice My 15 Year Old Self

Not too long ago, I was seeing "Letter to My ___ Year Old Self" all over the blogosphere.  There were varying ages.... I chose 15 year old self for mine, but I am doing  Advice to My 15-Year old Self  instead of a letter.  Things I wish I could have listened to and learned then.

1.  You really will need to know this stuff they're trying to teach          you.  Pay attention.  Learn it!

2.  Don't take the easy way out just for an A. Take the flute if you love it.

3.  Some mean girls will still be mean at 50.
3b.  And you just might find out they have lost their power.

4.   Be yourself, not what you think someone else likes.

5.  BFF's sometimes aren't forever, and that's ok.

6.  No one is worth your self worth.

7.  The careless hurts you cause now will still make  you cringe at 50.

8.  Prayers don't have to be with your eyes closed.

9.  Don't do/be it to be different, do/be it because you believe it.

10.  Don't be in such a hurry to grow up.

What would your Ten Pieces of Advice to your 15 year old Self be?  Can you add any to these? Leave a comment and share some.

Chick Pea Salad

If you like chick peas, I'm pretty sure you're going to like this salad!  I must tell you, though, it's not my own creation.  And, I must also confess, I can't remember who it belongs to!  I'm sorry.  It was so easy and I had the ingredients on hand that I just went to the kitchen after I saw it and whipped it up.  I'm pretty sure all the ingredients are as listed on this person's blog, if not, well...  I liked the finished product,  If it was yours, please accept my apologies, and leave a comment so I can give proper credit.

Chick Pea Salad

1 can of chick peas (otherwise known as Garbonzo beans)
1/2 to 3/4 pint of grape tomatoes, sliced
Chopped basil leaves (FRESH).  I think the recipe called for 25, I just used what I had and I think it was about 15 - I thought that was plenty)
a couple cloves of garlic, minced
1 TBSP red wine vinegar
1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 TBSP honey
a little sea salt and dash of pepper

Toss all the ingredients together and let sit for a bit in the frige to let the flavors mingle and get to know one another.   Eat with total abandon!  It was so good!!!
