  1. It’s not what other people say about you that determines who you are – it’s what you whisper to yourself every day that has the greatest power, both negative and positive. Own who you are.
  2. Always remember; you ARE good enough and you ARE enough. You don’t need someone else to validate or define you. You don’t need permission to be who you are.
  3. When you aren’t feeling up to speed, that’s when you need a self-care day. Be good to yourself.
  4. You are precious and unique. You are a work in progress. Imperfect, flawed, beautifully created. It’s all good.
  5. You can’t base your life on what you think others’ opinions and expectations are, real or in your head. (See 21 Things to Never Forget).
  6. Spend more time with those who support you even if they don’t understand. Critical people are insecure and don’t want to see you happy.
  7. Abraham Lincoln said: You are about as happy as you make up your mind to be. That doesn’t mean your life will be a walk in the park but there is always plenty of reasons to be grateful. (See 3 Things For a Successful Life).
  8. To accept the things you cannot change is the beginning of letting go. It’s a journey. Take the first step. Let go.
  9. You can’t move forward while holding on to the past. Let it go.
  10. Stay in the moment. One day at a time. It’s a peaceful way to live.
  11. Make room for the things that you enjoy. Someone once said; “If it isn’t a hell yes, then it’s a no”. It makes it easier to say no to the things that aren’t important to you.
  12. It’s never a good idea to compare yourself to others. You can’t compare their outside to your inside.
  13. It takes courage to face reality. Don’t do it alone. Find a trusted friend or two to journey with you.
  14. You don’t always have to be doing. Simply be sometimes.
