Believe that everything happens for a reason. Look at the stars and finally realize how small you are. Go to the beach and watch the world go by. Speak a foreign language. Write. Travel the world and look just how different your perception is when you come back. Eat that red velvet cupcake. Never regret anything, at one time it was exactly what you wanted. Forgive and forget. Don’t hold anything back. Forget the criticism, and grasp the opportunity. Live for your family, your lovers, your sisters and brothers and friends. Live for the music, the moments. Why? Because life is really, really, short.
