“Laugh as often as you can,  the more you laugh the funnier life becomes. Laugh at bad jokes and laugh at yourself, life is far too short to take yourself too seriously and it’s better to be ridiculous than to be boring. Never assume that the people you love know how you feel, tell them, show them, convince them and prove it to them every day. Listen first, then talk.
Defend your point of view but accept when you are wrong.
Learn to apologize, to admit your mistakes and learn to accept compliments. Take care, take your time and take risks. Make decisions, make mistakes, make fun of yourself and make friends of strangers. Be modest but not invisible and always give credit were credit’s due. Don’t be too quick to judge, first impressions are just that, impressions. Be patient, be positive, and be vulnerable.
Be happy, be sad and above all be yourself.
Surround yourself with people you admire and never be ashamed to ask for help. Embrace your flaws, perfection is boring. Do things that you are passionate about, and you will soon realise that your life is full of things that you love. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty, life is messy, get stuck in. Don’t be a victim, be a survivor.
Learn to bask in the sunshine and dance in the rain. Remember that youth isn’t wasted on the young, youth is just matter of perspective. Stop complaining about your age, in ten years you’ll wish you were the age you are now. Never settle, never give up and never let go of your dreams, regret is far worse than failure. Whatever happens, at the end of every day step back, take a deep breath and smile.”
