You set the precedence for how people treat you. If you respect yourself then people will respect you. Don’t play games with your own feelings. No one can let you down unless you allow them to hold you up.

You must figure out what your passions are and follow those passions with all your heart. Don’t hold on to false promises and empty hopes. Live in your moment and people will join you. Live in your moment and love will find you.

If you care about someone, care about them. Treat them with love and respect and honor. Let them know that they make you want to be a better person. Show them how you feel because you risk not being able to tomorrow.

Live each day as if it were your last. Greet each day with love in your heart. Say I love you silently to all that you meet. Wear your best smile. Fake it till you make it. Live and let live.

Don’t be afraid to love or show love or receive love. If it’s not reciprocated move on. But walk away wishing they find love. Don’t try to change yourself or convince the other person otherwise. There is someone for everyone and if you don’t walk away now the love of your life is going to miss out on meeting you. And that person is out there looking for you at this very moment.

Figure out what makes you happy. Find a hobby. Join a workshop. Take up painting or writing or ice hockey. Keep busy. Get rooted. Know your boundaries. Make your list. Give back. Take a chance. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable.

Hope, adorable, effervescent, brilliant, dreamy, enticing, dazzling, alive, energetic, confident, beautiful, passionate, sexy, humble, healthy, friendly, happy, powerful, miraculous, plentiful, profound, irresistible, luscious, magnificent, smashing, warm, unique, successful, terrific, worthy, loving.

You are all these things and more. Remember?
