10. Know it’s never too late.
So what if you’ve been at it for 20 years? So what if you’ve got a family and think you’re stuck? My 87-year-old grandmother started yoga just a few years ago, and my mother went back to school to get her third degree with three small children. Life is long my friends, you have a lot of time to go after those things you want.
Can we talk about how long and dark my hair was when I graduated university?? Whoa.
9. Know that a day spent miserable is a day wasted.
We are given 365 days a year, times 70+ years. But it can all be taken away in an instant. Don’t waste your hours wishing you could be spending them differently. Take advantage of the gifts you have. Get up and do something that makes you happy. Find joy in every day.
8. Get dirty. Make mistakes.
Then make more mistakes. Learn from them. Teach others what you’ve learned from them. Wear them with pride, and keep chugging along.
"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm." -Sir Winston Churchill
7. Know that you are worth it.
No one deserves to be unhappy. No one. Most reasons behind feelings of worthlessness are petty. You deserve better.
6. Eat cookies.
Sometimes, eat them for breakfast.
5. Trust the process.
Things will work out if you let them. It may not be your original plan, sometimes things fall through. But keep at it and you will end up where you should be.
4. Want it.
Really want it. Go after it with a passion. Think about it, plan it, write it down, let people know about it. Scream it from the mountaintops and take charge.
3. Learn to be your own best friend.
When you like being around yourself, so will others. You’ll attract good people and create meaningful relationships. Be at peace with who you are. Stop trying to change yourself and be content with who you really are, because that person is awesome too.
1. Ad astra per alas porci.
My motto. “To the stars on the wings of a pig.”
In other words: anything is possible. No really. Anything. What are you waiting for? Go for it!
