Your first love, wonít be your last. And your Prince Charming isnít always the picture you had in your head.

It is okay to fail, it is okay to be wrong.

Youíre supposed to make mistakes, but you need to learn from them.

It is okay to not always be okay.

The hardest thing in life is choosing what path to take.
Trusting is hard, but you shouldnít stop doing it all together, no matter how many times you get burnt.

It isnít healthy to keep everything bottled up inside.

What people think you of doesnít matter, but your reputation kind of does.

You donít need to have a lot of friends, but just a few really good ones.

You will one day have your biological family, but also the family youíve chosen.

Regretting something is just silly, because everything youíve done or not done in your life adds up to who you are.

Donít close your heart off Ė it is the life force of your soul, not just your body.

Only stress about the things you can change, about the things you have control over.

Holding a grudge is an intense waste of energy.
Let go.

If you feel strongly about it, then do it.

Love is the most powerful emotion a person will ever feel Ė donít mess around with it.

Being an adult is hard, but being a teenager is harder.
A true relationship is about a lot more than just sex; if you are connected to that person, then sex isnít the be-all-and-end-all.

The most comfort you will ever feel is when someone is holding your hand, so let them.

Smiling is important, so do it every single day.

Take your make up off before you go to bed, no matter how tired or drunk you are.

Keep spare underwear in your handbag at all times Ė a sexy pair, and an emergency pair.

It is okay to look like an idiot, as long as you are having fun and not hurting anyone else.

Happiness is the ultimate goal.

Share your life with people.

And the most important thing?

Always stay true to yourself, even if the odds are against you, even if you donít really know who you are. Just be yourself, because who you are is amazing, no matter what.
