-Change is okay.
-Be proud of who you are and what you’ve accomplished.
-Follow your passion everyday.
-Take time off for yourself frequently.
-Forgive as often as you can, when you’re ready.
-Read as much as you can.
-Enjoy every age because it is fleeting.
-If you ever have a choice to say I love you to the one you love or to say nothing at all, always choose I love you.
