Christine Prokupek Posted almost 3 years ago What advice would you give a younger you? Advise to a younger me? "Brace yourself. Question everything, and don't settle for an answer until you've explored every possible known avenue. Stand up for yourself and the beliefs you have ingrained inside of you naturally and the ones you choose to adopt. Patience will not come easy for you, this will be something you must learn, and then learn to control. You have more capabilities than anyone is willing to tell you about, and it must be your own desire to seek these out. Things are not as they appear, nor are they as others want you to think. Embrace this knowledge and create your desires-even if no one is there to encourage and support you. When in doubt-look up. When you fail-get up. When you achieve-celebrate. Live each day as if there is no tomorrow. It's okay to have regrets, mistakes and hardships-don't let them kill you, or keep you down- these are tests of strength and abilities. Prove others wrong but do it gracefully. Be thankful for what you have- and be thankful for what you dont. Challenge yourself and find peace in your choices. You may think you are lost at times, but trust me-when I tell you to trust in yourself above all else. Develop the legacy you want to leave."
