1. Be gentle and kind

2. Show respect to everyone you meet (whether you think they deserve it or not)

3. Pay attention to the little things (often that makes you stand out from the crowd)

4. Do everything wholeheartedly, with passion and love

5. Be flexible, adaptable, and open to change

6. Don’t complicate your life with lots of oughts, musts and shoulds

7. Encourage other people to be all that they can be.

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of being yourself.

Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

Sometimes you have to do what’s best for you, not what’s best for somebody else.

Be with someone who treats you as a destination, not a stop along the way.

1. Don’t take your partner for granted

2. Show affection, and express your love

3. Say what you appreciate about your partner

4. Be thoughtful; make that extra effort

5. Be careful with your words

6. Apologize

7. Don’t bear grudges

8. Take care of your own emotional needs

9. Try to understand your partner’s point of view

10. Believe in them, and want the best for them.

One of the hardest things you will ever have to do is grieve the loss of a person who is still alive.
