Don’t save your best behaviour for strangers.
Don’t surrender to boredom, find the new in the familiar. Find the extraordinary in the ordinary. The same old can be distinctly new.
Allow yourself to be delighted by life’s little moments and joys – like the wind in your hair, sun on your skin, the smell of freshly baked cookies wafting through air, the scent of mud after it rains.
Not everyone is kind enough to acknowledge, commend or compliment – do good anyway.
Find meaning in everything you do, and do it with love. Breathe life and energy into everything, and every person you come into contact with.
Be nice to people. It’s contagious.
Learn from everyone – stretch your heart and mind.
Let them judge. Trivialize the trivial. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Invest in experiences. Collect more experiences.
There is always room for levity. Introduce levity into your days, we need it now more than ever.
Reflect on your challenges – what are they trying to teach you?
Find creative channels to express cooped-up feelings and emotions. Give yourself permission to be human.
Pursue your passion – it will sustain you through empty moments.
We learn to colour inside the lines only by scribbling outside of them. Growth is a process. Give yourself time.
Make time for silence.
Allow your inner light to shine.
