1

You do you

Don't compare yourself to others. Live your life, on your terms, for yourself, and at your own pace.

 

2

EAT + drink more

Food means so much. Indulge in all types of cuisine. Cook often, pour yourself a glass of great wine.

 

3

buy flowers

My grandmother and mother always had fresh flowers in the house. As do I. It definitely makes a different.

 

4

drink lots of water

It's true what they say. Water is the miracle drug for skin and ageless beauty! Drink more of it!

 

5

be lazy

We all need a good lazy Sunday spent in bed, with pjs, a few movies, and some quality junk food. You deserve it. 

 

6

pray

Whether you believe or not, praying helps. Even simple conversations with God are necessary from time to time.

7

say "yes" more

Life's much to short to say no. Do more with it! Say yes to dancing, eating pizza, even skinny dipping. 

 

8

save money

You never know when you'll need it most. Save as much money as you can to do anything you want later.

 

9

go dancing

No excuse to be a wallflower. Dance with your loved ones. Dance alone in your underwear at home.

 

10

BUY EXPENSIVE SHEETS

There's nothing like a good night's sleep. Sheets matter people. You'll feel great about it I promise.

 

11

make time

In a world of "go go go," make time for the ones you love, the things you love, and the places you love.

 

12

invest

Don't waste money or time. Invest in good pieces of furniture, great shoes, and an amazing future.

13

travel often

Do all you can to travel in this lifetime. Even weekend trips here and there are always worth it. 

 

14

make new friends

Sure we all love our high school friends, but make new ones as an adult. Best friends can come at all ages.

 

15

no drama

Drama is just not worth it. Don't engage, stay out of it. Keep away from people who are drawn to it.

 

16

let yourself cry

Sometimes we just need a good cry. Don't hold it in, let it happen. It's a necessary part of healing.

 

17

it's ok to let go

Don't be afraid to let go of your past and people from it. People are meant to come and go. Enjoy them while you can.

 

18

hug everyone

Never hangup the phone on a bad note, always say I love you, hug them longer and tighter, kiss them goodbye.

19

READ

Read as much as you possibly can. Read the classics, read trashy novels, read the news, read poetry.

 

20

netflix is ok

Don't feel guilty for binge-watching 10 hours of something awesome. No regrets when it comes to Netflix.

 

21

take pictures

Sure you should take in the view and live in the moment. But a picture says a thousand words and holds memories.

 

22

watch the sunrise

We so often catch the sunsets, but it's the sunrise we must wake up for. It's usually always so worth it.

 

23

keep good company

Surround yourself with honest, kind people who lift you up. Let go of anyone who doesn't make you feel good.

 

24

FORGIVE PEOPLE

Forgive, but don't forget. Forgiveness allows you to let go.  Remembering allows you to never let it happen again.

25

don't be afraid

Don't be afraid to fail or succeed. Don't be afraid of your past or your future. Don't be afraid of falling apart. Don't be afraid to lose yourself. Don't be afraid of what others think. Don't be afraid to fall in love for the first time. Don't be afraid to fall in love again.

Cheers!
