When I sit in front of my class and tell them about life, love, laughter and tears. I tell them the truth, I tell them what it means to laugh, what it means to hurt and that these feelings are allowed. You’re allowed to cry, you’re allowed to feel lonely. If you weren’t allowed then why are we built with these feelings inside?
The media is filled with perfect smiles, perfect bodies and perfect families, but life is a rollercoaster.
To succeed feels better when the challenge is harder.
Here’s what I say!
Take your dreams seriously.
Don’t be afraid to fail.
If you know who you are, it matters not what others think.
Be somebody’s rainbow in a sky filled with clouds.
Never take a friend for granted.
If you’re going to start something, then make sure you finish it with the same passion.
Love your mother.
Don’t waste time trying to collect nouns, collect verbs.
Every step forward is a step in the right direction.
Do not tread on those beneath you, fir they are your foundations.
No matter how fast you can run, there will always be someone who can run faster. Lose gracefully.
Believe in yourself.
Don’t be afraid to tell people your dreams.
Love your father, they often get overlooked.
Eat healthy, sleep well and dream big!
