Listen to your gut. It knows to stay away from choices you will later regret.

Don't ever, ever, be afraid to fall in love. Love as many people as much as you possibly can. To love is such a wonderful feeling, and there is no rush like it in the world. Make yourself a person who needs physical affection and love to be able to survive, to wake up every morning, to function. Love. Just to love and be loved.

Life is always telling you things. And no matter how big you become or no matter how small you feel, listen.

Explore all you can. Know all you can. Give all you can and when you ask what life is all about and dont have the all the answers , you might just realise life is how we ought to make it be.

I know it sounds harsh, but I would be sure to tell my child to realize that life is unfair. Throughout their lives, they will witness the kindest kid at school get picked on, they will work for a boss who treats them horribly, they will get their heart broken by someone they love, they will do things they later regret, they will wish they had done things they never got a chance to, they will lose someone they love, they will fail a test at school, they will cry themselves to sleep certain nights, and they will stand back and watch the injustices that unfold before them. But I will also be sure to tell that child to never give up, no matter how bad things may seem, because there is no greater feeling than being able to look back and see that all their hard work paid off. :)

If i had to tell my child one thing, i'd tell them to hold on to their childhood for as long as they possibly can. Because childhood is what you try your whole life to overcome, and sometimes it's okay to hold onto it, but other times you can't. other times you HAVE to be grown up. so cling to the childlike abandon for as long as you possibly can. That innocence can only be kept for a little while, and so it's okay to get in a little trouble, and to love with all your heart. just don't have regrets, and don't let your childhood rip by.

Every day, ask yourself, "If I knew I would die tomorrow, what would be important to me today?"

That you are beautiful just how you are, not to listen why other tell you to change. To respect that everyone else is beautiful just as they are as well, and dont expect them to change.

Well, i would hate to see my children make some of the same mistakes that i have, but they need to learn on their own...they need to learn that life isnt always fair and that each person needs to learn how to deal with what has goes on!

The events of one day separate a winner from a loser. All the people you thought were on the bottom of the pile yesterday might not be there today. Watch yourself.

Give generously. Give them your personality. Give them your opinion. Give them no excuses. Give them an attitude they will never forget. But, what ever you do, there is something you should never give.

A shit.

Life is like a charlie chaplain movie where the little guys kicks the big guy in the ass. The big guy turns round and Charlie acts all nonchalant, then carries on working. Charlie thinks he's got away with it and turns his back to the big guy who dutifully kicks him in the ass. What I'm trying to say is if you kick the world in the ass it going to know it was you and do it back. Life is a series of humourus kicks to the ass.

Look at me, and if you like what you see, you're definitely not aiming high enough. While you must be happy with yourself, never, ever assume that you can't get better. Only person who ever stopped improving is either dead or might as well be.

Love with all your heart, because everyone needs love, no matter how much they manage to deny it, always stay true to who you are, do things for your own reasons, not because other people want you to, and always, always, always, LAUGH at least once a day.

Be polite on the phone. When you initiate a call, identify yourself prior to asking for the person you want to speak to. Say "May I," "Please" and "Thank you."

Thu May 17 18:32:56 2007

always follow your heart and dont let anyone take that away from you. Dont let people put you down, always stay strong and keeping moving on.If people are mean to you be nice to them and then they might have a change of heart.
