Avoid small talk. Embrace conversation.
Buy a plant, water it.
Make your bed. Make someone else’s bed.
Have a smart mouth, and quick wit.
Make art. Create.
Swim in the ocean. Swim in the rain.
Take chances. Ask questions. Make mistakes.
Know your worth.
Love fiercely. Forgive quickly.
Let go of what doesn’t make you happy.
– Paulo Coelho
