1. Life is too short to not do what you want, to not be happy.
3. Time flies… Make every day count!
4. Never let anyone make you feel like you don’t deserve what you want, or make you feel like you are not good enough
5. The only place it’s “cool” to be like everyone else is high school, in the real world you will quickly learn that being different is what makes you unique.
7. Your best friends now won’t be your best friends forever. Enjoy them.
8. Never settle. You deserve the absolute best, nothing less.
9. You will experience loss; you will lose people you love. You will have your heart completely shattered and struggle to put the pieces back together. Maybe instead of building puzzles they should have taught us this.
10. Nobody’s life is perfect, no matter how thin they are or how straight their hair is, everyone has something that they are dealing with.
11. Life isn’t fair.
12. Just when you think things can’t get any worse. They can.
13. You will make mistakes. But remember mistakes are just life lessons you need to learn the hard way.
14. Don’t get yourself into debt. Getting into debt is easier than getting out.
15. What other people think about you is none of your business. They don’t know you.
16. Stop worrying about the things that don’t really matter. The things you are worrying about now probably wont matter in a few years.
17. Stop stressing about finding your soul mate, love will find you when you least expect it.
19. What you think about yourself is more important than what other people think of you.
20. You need to take risks. You’ll never know if you don’t try. Sometimes you fall but if you never fall you would never realize that you can fly. You can survive.
