It doesn’t matter what it is that you think you cannot do. I am here to tell you that you can do it.

There are a few things in this world that are impossible, but making your dream come true is not one of them. Don’t limit yourself.

They labeled you when you were born, told you to be quiet and listen to the rules. But life shouldn’t be this way, young soul.

You are alive, and the truth is that nobody knows how much time we have in this world. So please, enjoy it while you are here.

Learn a lot, but learn what you like — not what society tells you to like. And dream big, because dreaming is the first step of making something a reality.

Don’t settle for less than you deserve, and let me tell you, you deserve the world.

Don’t let unimportant experiences to bring you down and change your mood, life is too short for that.

Don’t get sad just because you don’t look the way society tells you to look. Who are they to tell you what is acceptable and what is not? Wear whatever you want to wear, love whoever you want to love, listen to whatever music you want to.

If someone laughs at you, turn around and leave. Always be the bigger person. They don’t deserve your attention, your time here is limited and they shouldn’t steal from it.

But don’t keep grudges either. Love everyone, be understanding. Be compassionate and empathic.

Everyone has a battle inside, most of the times the people that are mean to you are going through some things themselves. Help them if you can but don’t, I repeat don’t, let them affect you with their negativity. Know that negative people can’t stay in your life.

Don’t be afraid to fall in love, and trust me, your first love will not be your last. It doesn’t matter what you think at the moment. That cute human with your favorite color dancing in their eyes is just the beginning.

Believe in karma, everything you send out comes right back at you. So always be kinder than you should. This world needs it.

Love the animals, love the plants, love the stranger on the street.

Remember always that we are all equal and different at the same time. Let people do whatever they want as long as they are not hurting anybody. They will live their life, you live yours.

Enjoy the moments you have with someone and when it’s time to go, say goodbye with an open heart. Be happy that out of billions of people, you met them.

Travel, visit new places. Study other cultures, learn about them.

Wake up every day grateful that you get to experience everything for one more day. Who knows what happens after death? I don’t. So make sure to take advantage of every second that you spend here.

Eat healthy. Eat that chocolate bar when you feel like it though. As I said — life is too short.

Just be careful to have balance. Drink a lot of water.

Love yourself, every inch of your body, and every part of your soul.

Accept change with open arms, understand that it is inevitable and wonderful too. We are not meant to stay the same — we are meant to grow.

Love every second of life. Celebrate your uniqueness. Love yourself.
