You guys ask such thoughtful questions! I loved the great baby names question that I answered earlier, and ediTORIal user Lindsay Rowe asked another question that was so much fun to answer. She asked:

If you could look back at your 21-year-old self, what advice would you have for her?

Such a great question, Lindsay, and something I think about more and more as I raise my own daughters.

I would tell 21-year-old Tori that she’s strong, beautiful, smart, and can do anything that she sets her mind to. At 21, my biggest obstacle (well aside from a bad boyfriend) was myself. I lacked such self-confidence that I constantly stood in my own way. Although I don’t believe in regrets and think every moment makes us the women and moms we ultimately become, it would be nice to give this advice!

Oh, and I would have taught myself how to tweeze my eyebrows- haha!

Looking back, what advice would you give your younger self? What do you wish you had known? Share your words of wisdom with me in the comments section below. And – just for kicks – if you have a picture of yourself back in the day, upload it to your profile and share the link in the comments!
