"don't settle. don't finish crappy books.
if you don't like the menu, leave the restaurant. if you're not on the right path, get off it."
"never lie to someone who trusts you. never trust someone who lies to you"
i'd like to add, "if you're not happy, talk to the manager. don't feel guilty if you spend an afternoon doing nothing. unfortunately, there's so many other things to feel guilty about. i'm not perfect, so quit wasting your time thinking that i am. don't raise your voice unless absolutely necessary, like in the case of a fire, otherwise, you've left a scar that will last a lifetime. feeling wanted, sexually and emotionally, is the best feeling in the world. you might want to rethink things if you just went, "huh?" compliment your loved ones. even the teeniest and simplest compliments tend to ward off the feeling of being taken for granted. put your phone away. studies have shown you can live without it. you will get in the wrong line at the cash register, so prove to yourself that this is not something to cause you to have a bad day and practice patience...but when the woman in front of you decides to write a check and doesn't even pull out her checkbook until everything has been rung up, then you can go ballistic. kiss your lover passionately at least once a day. pecks are what chickens do and you are worth so much more than that. have your beliefs and opinions, but don't expect everyone to agree with them or understand them. that's why we have words like beliefs and opinions...and facts. be "on fire" and amaze yourself, even if it only involves solving the puzzles on wheel of fortune before everyone else does. know things about yourself and be proud of those things. don't apologize for being you. unless you're always late. don't be late. ever.
