Do it because you love yourself. Do it because you want to be your best. Live fully; you only get this one life… don’t squander it. I missed out on my entire 20’s, because I nearly did. I thought I was irreparable. It is never too late… never. If you’re 10 or 100, you can choose to truly live at any point in your life. You are NEVER broken beyond repair. Remind yourself constantly if you need to; wear a string on your finger if you must. Treat your body, mind, and spirit with all the love in you; be kind to yourself. Easy does it. You have one mind and one body to love and be gentle with; nourish it with compassion and all things good. Never forget yourself and never forget you are a SOMEBODY! You can choose to be your best or you can choose not to be; everyone has free will. Choose well, always remembering that you, indeed, decide you’re here and now. No matter the circumstances; there are, indeed, matters we have little to no choice over, but these can be faced with bravery,dignity, and grace.
“Be kind whenever possible…it is always possible.” Dalai Lama
