Life has a secret.
"Enjoy the power and the beauty of your youth,
You will not understand the power and beuaty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me,
In 20 years you 'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now
how much possibility lay before you,and how fabulous you really looked!
You are not as fat as you imagine.
Don't worry about the future or worry,but know that worrying is as effective trying
to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum.
The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind,
the kind that blindsides you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.
Do one thing every day ,that scares you.
Don't be reckless with other people's hearts,
don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.
Don't waste your time on jealously, sometimes you are ahead
sometimes you are behind.
The race is long and in the end, it's only with yourself.
Remember compliments you receive,
forget the insults.
If you succeed in doing this,tell me how.
Keep your old love letters,
throw away your old bank statements.
Don't feel guilty if you don't know what to do with your life.
The most interesting people i know didn't know at 22 what
they wanted to do with their lives..
Some of the most interesting 40 year old i know still don't.
Get plenty of calcium.
Be kind to your knees,you 'll miss them when they're gone.
Maybe you 'll marry,maybe you won't.
Maybe you 'll have children, maybe you won't.
Maybe you have a devorse at 40..Maybe you 'll dance the
funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary.
What ever you do, don't congratulate your self too much
or berate yourself either.
Your choices are half chance,so are everybody else's.
Enjoy your BODY,use it every way you can,DON'T be afraid of it
or what other people think of it, it's the GREATEST INSTRUMENT
You will ever own.
Even if you have nowhere to do it
but in your own living room.
Read the directions even if you don't follow them.
Do not read beauty magazines,they will only make you feel ugly.
GET TO KNOW your parents, you never know when the 'll be
gone for good.
BE nice to your siblings.They are the best link to your past and the people
most likely to stick with in the future.
Understand that FRIENDS come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on.
Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography in lifestyle, because the older you get,
the more you need the people you knew when you were young.
Live in NY city once,but leave before it makes you hard.
Live in Northern California once,but leave before it makes you soft.
Accept certain inalienable truths.Prices will rise ,politicians will philander,
you too will get old, and when you do you 'll fantasize that when you were young
prices were reasonable,politicians were noble and children respected their elders.
Respect your elders.
Don't expect anyone else to support you.
Maybe you have a trust fund,maybe you 'll have a wealthy spouse,
but you never know when either one might run out.
Don't mess too much with your hair,or by the time you 're 40,it
will look 85.
Be careful whose advise you buy,but be patient with those who supply it.
Advise is a form of nostalgia,dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal ,
wiping it off,painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth."
