Don't undermine your worth by
comparing yourself to others.
It is because we are different that each
of us is special.
Don't set your goals by what other people
Only you know what is best for you.
Don't take for granted the things closest
to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life,
for without them, life is meaningless.
Don't let life slip through your fingers
by living in the past, or for the future.
By living life one day at a time,
you live ALL the days of your life.
Don't give up when you still have
something to give.
Nothing is really over until
the moment you stop trying.
Don't be afraid to admit that you are
less than perfect.
It is this fragile thread that binds
us to each other.
Don't be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances that we learn
to be brave.
Don't shut love out of your life by saying
it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love
is to give love.
The fastest way to lose love
is to hold it too tightly...
and the best way to keep love
is to give it wings.
Don't dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams is to be without hope.
To be without hope is to be without purpose.
Don't run through life so FAST that you forget
not only where you have been....
but, also where you are going.
Life is not a race...but...a journey
to be savored each step of the way.
