Advice to My 17-year-old Self

Hey Baby
Live your truth
Dance your wild
Shave your head
Blue hair will be in eventually
So keep it
Mistakes are the best way to learn
Be easy on yourself
Enjoy your teeth
Brush them more often
Even if your gums bleed

I am in your court
You will live a lot longer than you think
Do the fun stuff now
Your knees will break later
And your ankles will get arthritis
And you will stop dancing
So prance and hop and skip and sing
Live your truth
Shout your ideas
Follow your heart
Never be afraid to be yourself.
I am proud of you
We will meet in fifty years
