1) A boy telling you you’re pretty won’t make you see the beauty in the fullness of your cheeks, in redness of your lips at 2 in the morning when tequila is making the bar bathroom spin. He can’t take away the ugliness that you see in yourself, you have to do that.

2) You have to be ready to hear someone say they love you. You have to be ready, and you have to be willing, and you have to listen. Because sometimes, they won’t say those three words, they’ll put a blanket over you while you’re watching a movie, they’ll kiss your cheek when they think you’re asleep, they’ll smile when they see you first thing in the morning. But you, you have to be willing to see it, feel it, let it in. Letting someone love you takes practice.

3) Don’t make compromises you can’t live with. Compromise is a different version of what you want, not a whole other Universe.

4) Learn to say no. No - to a movie you don’t want to watch; no - to sex you don’t want to have, no- to a relationship that’s driving you mad. Say no - to things that hurt you, to people that extinguish your fire, to jobs you hate and places that are desolate. There are bad things that we can’t control, bad things that happen and we are sucked into and have to feel with every fibre of our being, but the rest - learn to distance yourself, learn to say no.

5) Don’t expect people to walk through fire for you - not your parents, not your friends, not the person you’re in love with. Love doesn’t mean sacrifice, love shouldn’t mean sacrifice. Don’t expect someone to give away pieces of them, so they could fit you better. And don’t feel hurt when they refuse to - it’s self-preservation. Instead - learn from them. Do it as well.

6) Don’t tether yourself to people. Learn to make connections, to love, with both your feet steady on the ground. Learn to let people pass through your life; like a summer breeze, not a storm that’s just been unleashed.

7) Learn the difference between growth and growing up before it’s too late. Rooftops and water fights and ice cream for breakfast can be a part of your life at 10, 25, or 35. But by the time you’re 35 you need to learn to say enough, to be able to walk away, you need to be able to love yourself. Love yourself the way you loved yourself at 10, before the world had a chance to fill your head with ugliness.

Do you think every president goes through a awkward first few weeks in office when they’re not sure when’s the right time to ask if aliens are real or not?

Why Trying to Burn Calories is a Waste of Your Time:

You can’t burn enough.
There’s no way we can undo the calories we consume with the calories we burn through exercise. There is no way exercise can make up for a bad diet. It’s just not possible. One muffin kills an eternity on the stationary bike. It’s why calorie-burning will never add up in our favor.
Calories aren’t just calories.
Our bodies are much better at processing foods found in nature than foods made in a factory. This is why avocados, bananas, and coconut water are far better for us than fast food, chips and soda — even if the calorie count is the same. It’s not about the calories. So if we’re going to get to healthy and happy, it’s also not about burning the calories.
Ignoring how you feel is a conversation-killer.
Here comes your mind-body connection. If what you practice in your exercise is ignoring how you feel, you kill the conversation with your body. Your body is wonderfully communicative. Your body loves talking to you! And on top of it, your body is extremely smart. But if it’s telling you “Hey this doesn’t feel good, please stop!” and you just keep ignoring that because, after all, exercise is supposed to be miserable — then you lose that conversation. You disconnect from your body, and things don’t get better from here.
So how do we turn it around? How do we get in front of the choices we make, rather than follow them around and try to fix things?
How To Change The Exercise Game
Forget corrective calorie burning as the goal.
Forget “The worse I feel, the better this is for me!” Because we know it doesn’t work. The more we ignore how we feel — the more we practice feeling bad as a good thing — the more we disconnect from our body’s brilliant messaging about what we need to be healthy and happy.
What we practice while we exercise is pretty much how we live all day long. Practice ignoring how we feel, and we lose the chance to feel good. So let’s stop ignoring, and thinking it’s OK to feel crappy when we exercise.
