that I wish I knew before.
  1. Everybody, just like you, is in the process of living their very own life.
    This is a crazy thought when you really think about it.
  2. Sometimes you need to let people learn things on their own.
  3. Not everybody is going to treat you the way you would treat them.
  4. It's truly never too late to become the person you want to be.
    Despite what anybody tries to tell you.
  5. It's better to be grateful and appreciative of the things you have than to dwell on the things you don't.
  6. You can do absolutely anything you want to. At any moment in time. You are the author of your own story. Take advantage of that.
  7. Never let anybody else try to tell you who you are.
    If they do, it's only because they're unsure of who they are.
  8. Life is far too short to tolerate things that don't make you happy.
    Cut the bullshit out of your life. There's no room for it.
  9. Stop thinking. Stop thinking about the past. Stop thinking about the future. Take the time to look around and revel in the present moment.
    Magnificent things will happen.
  10. Don't try to change people. They are who they are. Enjoy them. Enjoy their hearts.
  11. Everybody is extraordinarily beautiful in their own way.
    Even yourself. And you deserve to know that.
