Today’s journal prompt asks, “What career advice would you give your 16-year-old self?”
I imagine that younger me has been selected for an experiment where he can talk to an older version of himself, but the topic is limited to career advice. Otherwise, sixteen-year-old me would want to know winning lottery numbers.
Sixteen-year-old me wanted to be a best-selling science fiction author, and he would be disappointed to know that I don’t have a single novel published yet. “Why not?” he would ask.
“Mostly, because I let self-doubt stop me,” I would say. “You might want to do something about that.”
