1. Treasure your time.

I know you’re always living the fast-paced life and I need you to slow down once in a while. Take time to breathe in and look at the sky. Try to write something for yourself and give yourself time to plan out and evaluate your life. Remember to ask yourself “Am I making a difference?”

2. Don’t wait for happiness, create it.

Stop limiting yourself with happiness dictated by others. You are your own happiness. It doesn’t matter if staying single makes you happy. It is what it is. Start doing things you love doing by yourself. Attend concerts alone, travel alone, eat alone, do everything on your own. It’s not that bad at all.

3. Falling hard doesn’t mean falling forever.

Someday you will stumble upon someone who will start a fire in you that cannot die. However, the truth is they are not always the one you’ll spend your life with. And it’s okay. Treasure the moment.

4. Don’t fall in love with potential.

You’ve been in and out of possibilities happening left and right. You’ve loved and lost. Just because you want something, it doesn’t mean they deserve to have you. You’ve been there and you know this. You just have to keep on reminding yourself that you should live life the way it is NOW. Not how it can be in the future.

5. Be hopeful, not naïve.

You always know when it’s right—don’t force it. Do yourself a favor and learn how to walk away when it’s time to walk away. When the connection starts to fade, learn how to let it go. Do not settle for anything less than a soul-deep, electrifying connection. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
