Friend Makin' Monday
So this is something Kasey's hosting over on her blog to help us get to know one another. This week's question is
What's The Best Advice Someone Has Ever Given You?
Immediately what popped into my head was, "Fake it till you make it." This was told to me over and over again by one of my teachers/mentors at a boarding school I went to for part of my sophomore year of high school. I was having a really rough time at school, missing my family, being really sick and going through the incredible stresses of life there.
So everyday when I'd see her she'd remind me, "Fake it till you make it." She really made me realize that no matter how bad things get, sitting and sulking will do you no good. You have to use your inner strength to pull you through and in time you'll forget that you're just faking it.
That has had a huge impact on my life and it still one of my mantras today.
