The Best Two Word Advice I’d Give My Younger Self
When I heard people say hindsight is 20/20, I never really knew what that meant. As you grow up you realize how you could have done things differently or better. It doesn’t mean that how you did it was wrong, there was a lesson to be learned.
Don’t get me wrong, I have very few regrets. I’m young — I’ve made some bad choices and learned from them. I’ve made some good ones too and some things have changed my life for the better. With many things I look back on, I think about what I could have done better or differently. Now that I’m a little older and possibly more mature, I tend to think things through a little more.
With that being said, I wish that I could take the knowledge that I have now and give my younger self some advice. If I had to sum it up in just two words, I would easily tell myself to dream big. Focus on the goal and work your tail off to get there, but make sure not to do it at the expense of the important things such as honesty, integrity, family and friends.
There are so many other things that I wish I could have told my younger self but there’s no way to do that. The best we can do is make mistakes, learn from them and move forward. That’s how you create your life story.
