    Knowing what you know today, what would tell your younger self about life?

    Think back to when you were twenty or when you were a teenager. What would tell your younger self about life?

    Life is a journey..God gave us everything ( a superior mind, for one) for us to be able to  give meaning and purpose to that journey in a world that is full of other journeys being given meaning and purpose by others. Our collective  journey starts with God, and the hope is, the journey will end with HIm.

    I would tell him not to be afraid to take on new challenges and do what you love to do without the fear of being wrong. I would also tell my younger self to please remember not to miss an important  job interview that will come along some day but you will doubt it.

    Don't worry, Be Happy.  Do not be concerned over things that you have no control of.  Stress less and live more fully and meaningfully.

    Always be prepared.  Learn every chance you get, do everything you have a chance to do, and live every moment like it is your last..and never give up on your dreams!

    Not a thing and I probably wouldn't believe me anyway. I wouldn't trade my experiences for anything, the good and the bad.

    Well, my answer definitely runs the risk of "giving off some bitter vibes", but I'd tell her, "Don't believe that if you always, always, try to do the right thing life will reward for you that.  If you don't get rid of that "always-do-the-right-thing" thinking you're going to pay some HIGH, HIGH, prices for it - time and time again

    A smarter idea is to do what "everybody else" so often does, which is aim to lie, sleaze, skulk, and otherwise avoid taking responsibility for you own actions."

    Life is but a dream

    Dream BIG!

    God blessed us with all that we need to survive.

    Brilliant minds that have brought us modern technology and medical breakthroughs.

    From the first step on earth to the first step on the moon.

    You can manifest anything you can grasp your mind around.

    Life is not a dress rehersal.  Enjoy your turn.  You will regret more the things you do not do than the things you do.

    Life is short, so better live life to the fullest. Stop worrying on things you can't control and start working on things that you can. Each day is a gift to be your best!

    start when you are younger, develop good habits, try to always do the right thing, invest in yourself when you are at school be serious in studying, knowledge is power and will take you places. have a good personality. Live life at the moment, never waste time! enjoy your youth! do as much good things as you can when you are younger because when you will get older you will think back and tell yourself i should have done this, now at your older age you cannot do the things anymore or you won't have much energy to do.

    I will tell him these words,
    "You can never get back to your past and live your life again to change things. Maybe you can go to tell your younger self again but you cannot dictate him to change things. So live your life and be you. Enjoy the sweet moments while you're still there."

    Don't worry about what your peers think of you in Junior High and High School ... once you graduate you will say goodbye to them forever and meet the people who really matter!

    Do as much as you can as soon as you can in the way of saving and investing. The faster you accumulate wealth, the more independent you become. In turn you gain the freedom to do the things that interest you as opposed to slaving away at a job that is much akin to wrestling the same pig in the same mudhole to the same outcome year in and year out.  Secondly, read, experience, and educate yourself to the maximum extent possible. In doing so, you become much more informed, have a better vocabulary, and in general will be a much more interesting person throughout your life. We never stop having the opportunity to learn and apply what we have learned...don't miss out.  Be ready...when opportunity calls.  It's not a matter of whether it will, it is more likely "when".  If you are not ready...the rest does not matter. Get out of the box, don't set boundaries for your life; don't always play it safe and miss the thrill of feeling adrenalin flow through your body. Take a deep breath and live! WB

    DO NOT HAVE SEX! I didn't meet the one until I wasn't a virgin. IO wish I would have saved that for them, although the experience I had made the sex better.
