Don't determine your worth
by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different
that each of us is special.

Don't set your goals
by what other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.

Don't take for granted
the things closest to your heart;
cling to them as you would your life,
for without them life is meaningless.

Don't let your life slip through your fingers
by living in the past or for the future.

By living your life ONE DAY AT A TIME
you live all the days of your life.
Don't give up 
when you still have something to give.

Nothing is really over
until the moment you stop trying.

Don't be afraid to admit
that you are less than perfect;
it is this fragile thread
that binds us to each other.

Don't be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances
that we learn how to be brave.

Don't shut LOVE out of your life
by saying it's impossible to find.

The quickest way to receive LOVE
is to give LOVE,
the fastest way to lose LOVE
is to hold it too tightly,
and the best way to keep LOVE
is to give it wings.

Don't dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams
is to be without HOPE;
to be without HOPE
is to be without purpose.

Don't run through life so fast
that you forget not only
WHERE YOU'VE BEEN,
but also
WHERE YOU'RE GOING.

Life is not a race,
BUT A JOURNEY-
TO BE SAVOURED
EACH STEP
OF THE WAY.
