The Most Important Life Tips I’ve Learned from The Most Influential Woman I’ve Ever Known

  1. Not everything or every person needs to be categorized or labeled. It’s okay to not fit into a label; you don’t need one!
  2. Hitting rock bottom (whether that’s emotionally, physically, mentally or all of the above) means the only way you can go now is UP.
  3. You don’t need to be defined in a “box.”
  4. Change may be extremely daunting and difficult, but can also lead to the greatest opportunities.
  5. The world is full of people with whom you will be instantly connected to, and others who you’ll repel against. This is okay.
  6. Even the strongest and most secure intuitiveness can be blindsided.
  7. Not every situation, conversation, or person needs to be deeply analyzed and taken through a big mental thought process. Be open to being simple and stopping yourself from overthinking.
  8. People who want to be a part of your life, or continue to be at least, (no matter how hard it is), will make the effort to do so-but you have to keep putting in that effort, too.
  9. Being an intense person doesn’t mean you always have to be that way.
  10. Honesty and the truth may be more painful to bear, but it is ten times better than any lie.
  11. Every single human on this planet is experiencing the want to find, make, or discover their “purpose” in life, whether they actually think about it or not. It’s human nature.
  12. “‘It’s not goodbye, it’s see you soon.'”
  13. Age is not a barrier for love; or it shouldn’t be at least.
  14. Finding yourself or making yourself does not determine that you must define yourself.
  15. Some people have lots of layers, others do not have as much depth. Be aware that no matter how many layers are shown on the surface of a person that there are always more, and they don’t show right away.
  16. Be open minded to risks.
  17. It’s all or nothing. Do or die. Black and white, no gray. True or false. If you’re in doubt, or you aren’t sure yet, do not make any decisions until you’re 100% behind it…if you don’t do this, you’re risking regret.
  18. You’re a lot stronger than you think you are. Embrace it, believe in yourself.
  19. The strongest people often have experienced the weakest moments.
  20. A person’s eyes are the key to their soul.
  21. You can choose how you want to react to certain situations, you’re not a machine. There’s more than one way this could go, look into it.
  22. Stay actively involved in the lives of the people around you, invest time into exploring new places, and trying new things. Immerse yourself in different cultures and be open to meeting new people. You never know how good the love you could find in these new places could be.
  23. Observe and Listen before jumping to conclusions.
  24. Be a crutch for others and don’t always expect them to be there for you in return. Give with an open heart.
  25. Everything is connected; it all happens for a reason. Think about this.
