My 10 Golden Rules:
1. Let passion drive you. Don't get caught up or worry about what other people are doing.
2. Smile often.
3. Do not dwell on things you regret. Look at those experiences as stepping stones and opportunities to learn and grow.
4. Change is inevitable. It's important to try new new things and keep moving forward.
5. Read everyday and talk about what you are reading with family and friends. Inspire, grow and learn from one another.
6. It doesn't matter how big or small, give back.
7. Do not strive for perfection. Flaws are beautiful and whoever you are, be yourself. Be the best version of who you are and people will the see the beauty within.
8. Laugh, cry, yell and get angry. We live in a culture that tells us to keep it all in. Let it out :)
9. Eat well and travel often.
10. Do something nice. Do it for a stranger, a loved one or even yourself and do it everyday!
