Have fun. Enjoy your life and don't be afraid of embarrassment. Stay up late until dawn with friends and just chill. Travel and gain some perspective. Sing in the rain and don't give any fucks when people laugh at you.
Remember that your time is limited, and take that knowledge as it is, a precious gift. Seize every moment, don't let it go to waste. Keep an
open heart and an open mind. Don't be afraid to take risks and chase your dreams. Sometimes you'll fail and fail some more. Just keep moving.
It's ok to be selfish. You're the most important person in your life, and if you don't fulfill your wants and needs, nobody else will. Never sacrifice yourself or your ambitions for anything or anyone. Don't concern yourself over others opinions. Everyone has their own issues and concerns, they don't have
time to worry about yours. The only approval that matters is yours, and your life is as successful as you believe it to be.
Be grateful. I am grateful for all of life's blessings. The taste of a mango, the smell of the ocean, the laugh of a friend, the unconditional love of a dog. I am healthy, I am young, I can support myself, I am depended on, and I am grateful knowing that these little things matter. I am grateful that I was born in a country where I can do, say, and believe what I want without fear or repression. I am grateful for my family and friends who support and believe in me when I am not strong.
When I was young I often wondered what it meant to be good enough. Then I grew up and realized that there isn't any way to measure such an intrinsic quality. It's a perpetual reflection of how you feel about yourself. I am determined to make a difference in my own little world, and if I can make a stranger smile, learn something new each day, and make a few people's lives richer from my presence, what else could I ask for?
Don't always assume you have all the information. There is always another view. I've learned the hard way that most times, things aren't as clear as black and white. Take a step back, and don't make assumptions. There is usually a good reason.
Finally, when in doubt, be nice to people. Simply when given the chance, don't be a dick.
