Please remember to do the following:
First, and probably the most important thing, breathe. The world is not going to end if you take a breather and just let it all in. Take things slow. Especially on days when you feel like you are drowning, that is a sign that you need to breathe. Appreciate.
Secondly, remember the important things. By that, I don’t mean the deadlines or requirements, or any of those stressing stuff. Important things such as going to church and giving thanks, your brother’s birthday, or even just pampering yourself once in a while. Remember to become a kid again and play video games, remember to make connections with your family. Having fun. These are important things that makes us a living human being.
Third, find inspiration and motivation. Continuously look for reasons to fall in love with anything and everything that you are doing – your job, your school work, accomplishing your dream. Nothing and no one else can motivate you but yourself.
Fourth, don’t be afraid to look stupid – not literally stupid, knowing nothing at all – but making mistakes along the way. It’s okay to look like a fool, as long as you are trying to achieve great things. From these mistakes, you will learn and grow. Take chances, take risks.
Fifth, believe. Believe in yourself, believe in the capability of the world to become better than it is today. Believe in the strength of a human mind and heart. Believe that your are strong. Believe that every one is good. Believe that you can become a positive influence to others. Believe that you can. Believe in Santa Claus, in Fairies, in Magic, and in Fairytales. Just, Believe.
Lastly, love. Love a whole lot. Even if it’s difficult, or terrifying, or crazy.
Oh, and by the way, you are almost there! Just, don’t forget to live every once in a while, preferably with your family and friends. Lol
Just needed to let those thoughts out. Cheers!
