1. Plan a trip
Stop making excuses. Go rock climbing in Joshua Tree, walk across the Great Wall of China, learn to surf in Mexico. In the big scheme of things, doing what you want to do will give you so much more than saving a couple thousand dollars and spending an extra few days or weeks at the office.
2. Stop comparing yourself to others
You are exactly where you are supposed to be. Do your best and mind your own path.
3. Smile always
Seriously, when you frown, you look ugly.
4. Stop caring what other people think about you.
It’s none of your business.
5. Eat real food
Your body is alive so nourish your vibrance. Don’t eat shit, because it makes you look and feel like shit.
6. Send love to everyone
Quietly bless everyone you meet, especially if they suck. They have to wake up in their own grumpy body every day. You get to wake up in your blissed out life. Remember that.
7. Listen to your music loud
Dancing is good for you. Do it often.
8. Challenge yourself
Find something that makes you uncomfortable and do it. Yoga, talking to strangers, speaking in front of a group – put yourself in positions you can’t back out of. You’ll get through it faster than expected and will realize you can do pretty much anything.
9. Let go of expectations
Do your best every day, be kind to your besties and to strangers, take care of your body, and know that everything will be fine. Don’t hold people or situations to expectations, accept challenges, and know that the infinite power of the universe is gently recalibrating your life at every moment to help guide you to your highest potential.
10. Practice gratitude
Be thankful for your parents and friends, your job, your apartment, and those tiny moments of happiness that you get from your morning coffee. This is your life, send appreciation and love to every corner of it.
