Or, maybe, you need to convince yourself of these things now…

  • Don’t ever let anyone talk you out of trusting your heart (take your head with you too)
  • You will feel more at peace when spending more time in nature
  • Stop trying to plan everything—be more spontaneous
  • No one else knows what they’re doing either; they’re just better at faking it
  • You don’t have to know everything about someone to love them with your whole heart
  • Look into a person’s eyes when speaking with them (or in silence)—they speak volumes
  • Keep an open mind always—your way of thinking or doing is not the only way or even the right way; people who can’t see beyond their own opinions go nowhere
  • You can’t love people with conditions and call it love
  • You can’t love people only when it’s convenient or easy for you
  • Telling someone you love them while closing the door on them is cowardly
  • Soul mates are not just spouses, partners or lovers; look and listen as they are all around
  • Surround yourself with those who don’t consider you an option
  • Be honest
  • Don’t make anyone feel invisible
  • People are most beautiful in some of their darkest moments
  • Embrace vulnerability
  • It’s okay to ask for help; it’s not weak but rather a sign of bravery to acknowledge your limitations
  • Read & write daily
  • Invest in yourself
  • Spend time in silence and don’t be afraid to spend time alone
  • You will never be good enough in some people’s eyes, including your parents—quit trying to please them all of the time and live your own life
  • Don’t be too timid; you will miss out on a lot
  • Protect your friends
  • Stop hiding emotions
  • Confidence, effort and conversation are vital and sexy
  • Be happy—only you can bring happiness to your life—make wise choices
  • Love whole, love long, love hard (don’t always play it so safe), love unconditionally
  • Live in gratitude daily
  • Be kind, be compassionate, be the light you wish to see
