As you get older you start to realise there is so much that life has taught us along the way.

Although I like to think that rather than having regrets, I had learning experiences that made me who I am today, there were definitely things I would do differently. Hindsight is a wonderful thing eh!

The first thing that comes to mind however, is how I felt after having my first baby nearly 8 years ago. I know babies don’t come with a manual of instructions so I went for the next best thing (or so I thought!) and devoured parenting books like they were going out of fashion! I was looking for the answers, which I now realise don’t exist. So I would tell myself to just follow my hear and believe in my own instincts of what is the right thing to do (and don’t listen too much to anyone else’s opinion!).

So, if you could revisit your younger self, what would you say to them?

Would it be to work harder at school, save more (this is one for me as I don’t have much of a pension), believe in yourself, remember to live life to the full, be a bit braver (this is me too!) or just simply wear your hair however you want?

Now onto the really exciting bit – YOU could be in with the chance of winning a Google Nexus 7 16GB Wi-Fi, which is being supplied by Legal & General.

    and hope for a future that scared me,
    I had a horrible time,
    from around the age of 9,
    felt like a horrible curse had ensnared me.
    My dad took my brother,
    and left our happy home,
    I felt unwanted, unloved and alone,
    My mum was deathly ill,
    and I had to quit school too,
    I lost all my friends,
    oh, I was so so blue.
    But If I could go back,
    and give myself a hug,
    and tell the me in the past,
    “You will be SO loved!”
    This crap won’t last forever,
    the good times will come,
    you’re getting all the horrors,
    out the way while you’re young!
    But your husband will adore you,
    and make you feel so good,
    every single minute!
    the way a loved one should,
    you’ll have four beautiful children,
    who will love you to bits,
    so keep carrying on Carrie,
    despite life being the pits,
    You can do this, I know it,
    so find your strength girl,
    because one day in the future,
    You will be someones whole world. <3
