Own up to your mistakes instead of trying to lie your way out of them, it’s easier for everyone that way.


If you really want something don’t give up on it.


Don’t make excuses for people who treat you less than you deserve because you know *deep down* they’re capable of being a good person.


Don’t hang on to someone who’s only good to you 20 percent of the time because that other 80 percent isn’t worth the torture.


Let go of all the people who drain you and turn you into someone you’re not proud of.


Take care of your body and your health because without it you’ve got nothing.


If it won’t matter in a year then there is no point in wasting time getting upset over it.


All your emotions are relevant, but don’t purposely complain and make a scene for attention.


Give however much you can, no gesture is too small to make a difference in someones life.


Hug your parents and tell them you love them – they won’t always be around for you to do so.


You could be the most beautiful sunset in the world, but some people will still find a reason to hate sunsets.


People aren’t worried about your life because they’re too busy worrying about what you’re thinking about their life.


Only bite off as much as you can chew.


If something doesn’t make you happy – quit. There’s no point in doing anything that doesn’t make you happy.


Always have a goal and always keep working towards something.


Most things are not as bad as they seem.


Always listen to the the full story before you assume and always listen to other peoples opinions completely, especially when they differ from your own. TC mark

Cut yourself some slack. One of the biggest regrets most people have about their 20s is that they didn’t enjoy them more. And I’m not talking about “buy more expensive dinners, take another trip to Thailand” type of enjoyment. I mean having the ability to take a deep breath and sip coffee in the morning knowing that you have done, and are doing, your best.
