Thank you, Sally, for inviting me to tell my story of what I wish I knew when I was younger.
I am sure like me, there have been times when you have wondered what difference might have been made to your life, if your younger self had been gifted with the experience and knowledge you have accumulated over the years.
I invited several friends from the writing community to share their thoughts on this subject which I am sure you will enjoy as much as I did.

You’re welcome! 😀
Jennie, I love how vulnerable you are here. Being able to recognize where and when you could have done better and then moving forward in life with those precious lessons you learned! You are such an inspiration!
When teachers can learn along with children, we bond, and then become their role models. It’s what I love most about teaching.

Thank you, Jen!
