10 Steps

Be kind to yourself and to others, even on a bad day. You are your own worst enemy so just love the person you are!

"Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire". This is a quote that I personally live by - follow what excites you. You are the CEO of your life, so, you are completely in charge of the decisions you make and the opportunities you take. 

Surround yourself with people who inspire you, people who generate positive energy and most importantly, people you can have fun with!

Forgive yourself and others. Let go of your own guilt and realise it is what it is; stop beating yourself up. Kick your pride out of the way and forgive - no one needs to hold a grudge! 

Try to stay positive - I say try because this can be really difficult at times. This will depend on the people you spend your time with and the things you do. I personally don't watch the News as it helps me to be more positive and appreciate my surroundings. Remember - a bad day does not mean a bad life.

Make time for the things you love, whether this is baking, reading, drawing or even dancing - do it! Sometimes it's hard to make time for these things when life is so busy but it's essential as these are the things that keep us sane!

Make time for people. This is so important for ourselves and others - we need people to keep us grounded and give us that much needed breath of fresh air. Sometimes a chat is all we need to keep us on track!

Appreciate the small things in life. The crisp breeze on a Winter's day or your morning coffee. A nice message from a friend or fresh flowers. The small things? They are not small. 

Live in the moment - in reality, the moment is the only thing that truly matters. Who cares if you have an essay due for Monday morning? Do it later! In a stressful world, enjoy moments when they're in front of you, give your friend a hug when they need it and say yes to that invitation!

Finally, Dream Big...and never stop dreaming. Don't just settle! If you can't stop thinking about it, don't stop working for it. "Your only limit is you."
