Four Simple Truths

1. You have many reasons to smile.

Life is not always easy. Every day can be an unpredictable challenge. Some days it can be difficult just to get out of bed in the morning, to face reality and put on a smile. Never forget that, even when times get tough, as they sometimes will, each of us is incredible, really.

So please smile more often. You have so many reasons to.

2. We are all in this together.

You won’t always be perfect and neither will I. Because nobody is perfect, and nobody deserves to be perfect. Everybody has issues. Nobody has it easy. You will never know exactly what I am going through, and I will never know exactly what you’re going through. We are all fighting our own personal wars.

But we are fighting through it simultaneously, together.

3. You are amazing just the way you are.

If someone discredits you and tells you that you can’t do something, keep in mind that they are speaking from within the boundaries of their own limitations. In this crazy world that’s trying to make you like everyone else, find the courage to keep being your awesome self. And when they laugh at you for being different, go ahead and laugh back at them for being the same.

4. Life isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty darn good.

Remember, courage doesn’t always roar aloud. Sometimes it’s the quiet voice at the end of the day whispering, “I will try again tomorrow.” So stand strong. Things turn out best for people who make the best out of the way things turn out.
