Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

There’s no such thing as what you ‘should’ be doing with your life. If you’re not holding yourself back from something you really want to try, and you enjoy the way you spend your day, then you’re a smashing success.

Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.

You are more than what you do, produce, or achieve. Don’t believe for a second that your output and your income dictate your worth. They don’t.

Don’t stress. Do your best and forget the rest.

Silence isn’t empty. It’s full of answers.

Don’t worry if someone does not like you. Most people are struggling to like themselves.

Every day is a new beginning. Take a deep breath and start again.

Kindness begins with the understanding that we all struggle.

When people say ‘Everything is going to be okay,’ they don’t mean everything is going to turn out exactly as you hope it will. No one can promise that. They mean you are stronger than you think, so no matter what happens, you will be okay.

Peace is accepting today, releasing yesterday, and giving up the need to control tomorrow.

Be okay with not knowing for sure what might come next, but know that whatever it is, you will be okay.

We often hold a grudge because we don’t want to let the other person off the hook. But who’s really hooked—the one who’s holding on or the one who’s moved on?

Life isn’t always fair. Some people are born into better environments. Some people have better genetics. Some are in the right place at the right time. If you’re trying to change your life, all of this is irrelevant. All that matters is that you accept where you are, figure out where you want to be, and then do what you can, today and every day, to hold your head high and keep moving forward.

Live simply. Dream big. Be grateful. Give love. Laugh lots.

Note to self: Keep going. You’re doing great. You might not be where you want to be yet, but that’s okay. Just take it one step at a time and keep believing in yourself. And remember: No matter what happens, you can still enjoy your life and be happy.

Be selective with your battles. Sometimes peace is better than being right.

If you really want to live your life to the fullest and realize your greatest potential, you must be willing to run the risk of making some people mad. People may not like what you do, people may not like how you do it, but these people are not living your life. You are!

You may never know what someone is going through, but if you notice any signs of pain—hostility, negativity, or oversensitivity—then odds are, you know how they feel. Respond to the pain instead of judging the signs.

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.
