Don’t take rejections so seriously. Appreciate how great it feels to get out of bed without one ache in your body and hurt in your heart. Appreciate your friends because soon they’ll start dying on you. Don’t waste your days – you really don’t have that many to squander — and make each of them a page in the chapters of your life. Don’t spend too much money on trendy clothes you’ll only wear once. But if you do, save those clothes because they’ll come back in style. Never say, “I’d never do this or that” because chances are you’ll do this — and that, too. You will not regret what you did, only what you didn’t do. Look in the mirror and enjoy your face. Look deep into your own eyes and tell yourself that you are your very best friend. Never abandon yourself to gain someone else’s approval. Remember that things always take longer than you think. Remember that life is harder than you think. Give extra-generous tips at restaurants and beauty salons because you won’t miss the extra money in your wallet but you will savor the feeling of generosity. Focus on being successful at one thing only – being the hero of your own life.
What are some things you wish you could have told your younger self?
