Some Life Reminders

  1. It is okay to put yourself first. You are not selfish for doing so. Self care and self love is something everyone is working on whether they admit to it or not.
  2. It is okay not to be okay. You can’t always be strong, it gets exhausting.
  3. It is okay to cry. Crying does not make a person weak. No one likes to show weakness. But showing that you have weaknesses makes you a stronger person because it takes a lot of courage to do something most people are afraid of doing.
  4. Be grateful for what you have.
  5. Learn how to let things go. Never hold grudges or fits. Learn how to forgive so you can live a happier, stress free life.
  6. Always be kind to people; whether you know them or not or if they treat you terribly. Always be kind.
  7. Do not compare yourself to others. Remember that everyone has baggage, not just you. Remember that some people have more baggage than others but that still does not mean the baggage you carry isn’t important because it is.
  8. When things get tough remember that you can get through it. Don’t quit, keep fighting and pushing through.
  9. Always show appreciation and gratitude to the people you love and care about. Tomorrow is never guaranteed. Tell the people you love how much you love them everyday.
  10. Life is and never will be a competition. There is no race to see who can cross off the most things on their bucket list or who gets the CEO position of some company. Everyone is at their own pace. Everyone is progressing in many different ways.
  11. Always stay humble and true to yourself.Do not change yourself for anyone. Focus on you, and only you. You are in control of your own life. Don’t let people’s opinions and or judgements towards you alter the way you think about yourself.
  12. Don’t ever sweat the small stuff. Chances are they’ll fix themselves.
  13. Focus on all the good. Even on your bad days, focus on all the positive things in life.
  14. Work hard but enjoy what’s around you. If you know you’re on the right track then there’s no reason for you to not take a break.
  15. Less is always more. Live a simple life. Remember to appreciate all the little things in life because those are the moments that make life extraordinary.
  16. Time doesn’t stop. Make most of what you have and don’t waste time on something that simply can’t be fixed.
  17. People change, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worst. It’s up to them whether or not they choose to stay in your life or not. And if they don’t that’s okay, people come and go all the time.
  18. People will always be curious. You don’t owe anyone an explanation. Show it instead of telling it. Let people talk. At the end of the day its all about you, your significant other, family and friends. People are always looking for flaws and faults in other people. Do not let their gossip get to you.
  19. Do not let others make you feel worthless or that you’re not good enough because you are. Anyone who makes you feel that way are just as self-conscious as you but put others down to make themselves feel better and superior.
  20. Patience and communication is key.
