#12 May 16 bring hopes and dreams and a belief you can accomplish anything. Many will tell you to go after your dreams while you are young enough to pursue them. I don’t believe that for one second. I say, chase down those dreams whether you are 16 or 106. Don’t let anyone dictate your timeline to what they believe.
#13 Happy sweet 16th birthday. As you grow into the young woman you will become, remember to care for your mind, body, and spirit every day. Bask in the energy surrounding you and enjoy drawing positive power from within yourself. Ground yourself and stand tall as you walk your path with pride.

I need you to remember that as a person, you are worth so much. Go where your existence is valued and stay where your thoughts are respected.
#15 For years you might have been told to follow a certain way of living, or to act a particular way. You should now begin to see life from a new perspective. You do not need to follow in another person’s footsteps. You have the ability to achieve your deepest desires. Happy 16th Birthday.
#16 Here’s the best advice I can offer on your sweet 16th birthday: when you get overwhelmed by a problem, ask yourself if it will still be an issue in five years. That simple question adds perspective and will help you keep in mind that most problems are temporary. I hope this advice serves you well and that you have a wonderful birthday.
#17 One of the most powerful attitudes you can have as you move into adulthood is this: you don’t have to know everything, but be willing to find out. Work ethic and curiosity will lead you toward achieving any goal you have. I hope you enjoy your sweet 16th and all the success you’ll earn.
#18 If there were some words of wisdom that I could go back and tell my 16-year-old self, it would be to live in the present moment and forget about other people’s opinions. You have your whole life ahead of you. Dream big and make a wish while enjoying your sweet 16th birthday.
#19 Happy sweet 16th. I hope your special day is filled with hope and love. I also hope you’ll remember this nugget of wisdom: imperfection is perfect.

Celebrate your unique experiences with a smile.
#20 Hold onto these words of wisdom today. You might face obstacles, so have the grit to overcome them. Problems might come your way, so have the optimism to power through them. Some days may not be so sweet, so have the strength to continue smiling through it all. Happy 16th Birthday.
