Life is hard. You’ll have bills, no job, and your car will break down. It happens. Breathe. Whether it happens today or in ten years you will face the unthinkable. Trust me, it’s not as bad as you think it is.
Deal with crap now. Some things get worse with time. Leaky roofs, broken arms and rusty pipes (especially the metaphorical ones) don’t magically go away if you ignore them. Sunny days don’t last forever. If they did, you’d get bored.
Floss. When you get older, you’ll thank me for that one.
Hug your parents. They’ve been through hell. Then hug your siblings even though they made you go through hell. Don’t forget to hug yourself. Not for real. That’d be weird. But give yourself a break. You’re worth it.
You might be in a hurry, dealing with a breakup or just haven’t screwed your face on right for the day. A smile fixes everything. Also, it makes you look good. And feel good. So, you’d better floss. If they don’t smile back, who cares? You flossed.
Make sure your kids hate you once and a while. They’ll thank you for it. But not until way later when they’ve got their own kids.
Say thank you. And please. Hold in that snarky comment. Speaking your mind lasts five minutes. Regrets last a lifetime.
Be kind. Exercise. Eat your greens. Work hard. Take a vacation. Stop stressing out.
But most of all….
