1.) Family is before everything.
2.) Be grateful for what you have. I can’t stress this enough. No one realizes that there are millions of people out there that can’t even afford to buy food for one day. There are people that have lost everything they have in their life, and still manage to keep a smile on their face.
3.) Not everyone will like you, and that’s okay. If they don’t like you then who cares!!
4.) Spend time with your grandparents. They won’t be here forever.
5.) School does matter. But don’t stress about it. Do your best, because that’s all you can do.
6.) In 20 years from now, no one will matter from high school. It won’t matter what clothes you wore or the car you drove, so don’t stress about that either.
7.) Be nice to people. It won’t kill you. Most people say that nothing is free but that is false. Kindness is free. 🙂
8.) If you see someone sitting alone, go sit with them or invite them to sit with you. I’ve been in that spot and I would’ve loved to have someone reach out to me.
9.) The only person you have to please is yourself. It’s as simple as that.
10.) Have goals for yourself. Whether it’s to travel to Europe, or to make straight A’s. Work towards it! It gives you something to look forward to.
11.) You don’t have to be good at everything! People make mistakes! It’s okay to make mistakes. Make sure that you forgive people too. Don’t hold grudges.
12.) Try new things! It won’t hurt you. And who knows, you might find something new that you are good at!
13.) Think before you speak, and act. This is so true. Trust me, it helps. A lot.
14.) Don’t judge a book by the cover. You can walk past a person and not like their clothes, and you decide you don’t like them. In reality, you might end up being best friends with them.
15.) Don’t let anyone make you do things you don’t want you. You create your own story. Don’t let other people write your pages for you.
Thank you all for a great year. HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here’s to 2016!
