1. Respect others, even if they don’t respect you. Later in life they may remember that respect.
2. Live with your whole heart. It may be broken, but you can’t say that you never loved.
3. Treat animals with kindness and it will be repaid to you a hundred fold.
4. Be Honest with the people you love. Honesty is the best policy.
5. Admit your mistakes; it shows you are human
6. Learn from your mistakes, but don’t dwell on them. Negative thinking will only make you depressed – and that’s not good for you or those around you.
7. Tell your family that you love them. You never know when it may be the last time you get to say it.
8. Never tell others that their dreams are worthless or dumb. Each of us are entitled to our own dreams and beliefs.
9. Realize that the only person you can change is yourself.
10. Be thankful for what you have. Knowing you are blessed isn’t arrogant if you’re truly thankful for your blessings.
