    My best friend gave me the best advice.

    He said, "Each day's a gift and not a given right. Leave stone unturned, leave your fears behind, and try to take the path less traveled by. That first step you take is the longest stride. If today was your last day..."

    "Listen"... To listen is not to listen with

    just your ears. To listen is to listen with your mouth closed, your heart open. To Listen is to listen with the intent for understanding, empathy, sincerity. To listen is not to listen with words, or the final answer, but listen with understanding. Keep eye contact as an anchor...

    I have a few great pieces of advice.

    1) You cannot love another, until you love yourself 2) Do today what others won't do, so tomorrow, you can do what others can't do. 3) Take it on the chin like a ****** man, and keep your mouth shut like an honorable man.

    Sometimes you have to be selfish,

    you have to do whats best for you and your life. Not whats best for everybody else. Only you can live your life nobody else does it for you.

    Its ok to say no. Sometimes you just don’t

    want to do something or its not for you. Maybe you have the time but you need space and peace or focusing on your self-care. Theres nothing wrong or selfish about that! To be of better service to others and the world. we have to take care of ourselves first!
