1. The most important person in your life is the person who agreed to share their life with you. Treat them as such. Whether in your case it may be your parents, always treat them with the same respect you would like to be treated as a human being.
  2. You might live a long life, or you might live a short one — who knows. But either way, trust me when I say that you’re going to wish you took better care of yourself in your youth and those around you so that you never have any regrets.
  3. Stuff is just stuff. Don’t hold onto material objects; hold onto time and experiences instead. Hold on to the small stuff with your love once or the people around you.
  4. Jealousy destroys relationships. Trust your significant other, because who else are you supposed to trust?
  5. People always say, ’’Make sure you get a job doing what you love!’’ But that isn’t the best advice. The right job is the job you love some days, can tolerate most days, and still pays the bills. Almost nobody has a job they love every day. And also who is to say that you might not be that person that loves what you do for work every day and get paid to do it. “I know someone that does”
  6. If you’re getting overwhelmed by life, just return to the immediate present moment (Mindfulness) and savor all that is beautiful and comforting things around you. Take a deep breath, relax.
  7. Years go by in the blink of an eye. Live your life. Go places “Travel”. Do things. If you have the means or not. Pack a bag and go wherever you can afford to go. While you have no dependents, don’t buy stuff. Any stuff. See the world. Look through travel magazines and pick a spot. GO!
  8. Don’t take life so seriously. Even if things seem dark and hopeless, try to laugh at how ridiculous life is.
  9. A true friend will come running if you call them at 2 am. Everyone else is just an acquaintance. Try to also be a true friend.
  10. Children grow up way too fast. Make the most of the time you have with them.
