You can choose to be the girl who smiles, who laughs, who lives openly and without restrictions because she is not defined by her past, and never will be.
Remember the big picture.
Remember, achievement takes time.
Take a break.
Never stop learning.
I hope you take chances- little ones, big ones, everything in between.
Be inspired by the people who truly changed the world for the better, and learn lessons from the writers and thinkers who have deeply studied the topics and personalities and problems of the past.
Do everything whole-heartedly, or not at all.
In this new year, I hope you love with passion.
In this new year, I hope you are fearless.
