What is the one advice you'd give to your child?
Listen to your gut. It knows to stay away from choices you will later regret.
"Keep in mind, no one's got it right, yet."
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.
Don't Regret ANYTHING.
Follow your heart...
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.
Stay lighthearted. If you let yourself turn to stone, the world will make you crumble.
Read. Read everything.
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 happened...life 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.
dance as if no one is watching you
Three things to live by: Take care of children and animals, Be true to those who love you, and Beware of bookburners.
Be sure to live (as well as leave) this life loving a conscience that is clear.
Don't sweat the petty things....and don't pet the sweaty things.
never trust anybody. they always let you down.
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.
Learn to question everything. Never, ever take anything, or anyone for that matter, at face value. Deconstruct everything.
stay as you are, so that you don't become someone like me.
don't let the sun go down on your anger. i wish i could aleays stick by this.
all those simple things are alot harder then you think, but they are worth it.
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.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
Oh, and just say No.
Don't have children
wear clothes that flatter your figure
you're beautiful, intellient and worth the whole world.
Love with all your heart, the pain is worth it.
Piss people off, make people laugh, live so that no one questions you, help people up when they fall, and never ever become predictable.
Never trust authority. Always find your own truth.
No matter what happens, put one foot in front of the other and keep going.
walk on. . . .
live Ur life darling and don't let other people live Ur dreams...... do what U want to do.
Never fear anyone or anything...
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.
Don't take Blu Tack for granted. It wont be there when you most need it.
And take your hands off that chocolate. You'll understand when you reach pubrty.
follow thy heart
don't turn out like me.
Whatever you're doing, be aware that someone less intelligent than you has a great deal more power.
Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke.
when they trip you over, get up and keep on running
Keep cool, but don't freeze.
don't ever let someone you love let go but don't hold on them too tight either..
Try evrything once.
yes, I know this is ripped off from Buffy: seize the moment. Tomorrow you might be dead. (granted, I might change it when the kids are young...)
listen to a combination of your head and your heart, your head knows whats logical, your heart knows whats right....but most of all, above anything else, listen to God, because he will never, ever led you astray.
Live and Let Die
Dont regret the choices u make and follow ur feelings
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."
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.
