Most advice that people give you will fall upon deaf ears until you’ve experienced it for yourself, so go make your own mistakes.
Regardless of the fact our advice is useful only AFTER you’ve made those mistakes, (you’ll turn and say, ‘oh that’s what you were talking about’) I’ll still give it to you anyway.
Learn to laugh at yourself and others, but never put yourself down to make others feel better.
Never try to achieve the ‘body’ the media is telling you should achieve. It will change, and you’ll always be unhappy. Treat your body with love and respect, and it will do the same for you.
Sometimes it’s less important to know what to say, and more important to know when to stop talking (one from Daddy).
Animals and small children can remind you about life, and how to live it.
Find out what it is that you love as early as you can.
It’s okay to change your mind.
No one has power over you. NO ONE.
Asking for help makes you stronger, not weaker.
You have your own guidance system, listen to it.
Sometimes all you need is full-belly cry, or a full-belly laugh. Preferably both, one after the other.
Always take more changes of underwear than you think you’ll need.
