When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.

  1. Forget the past.
  2. Do stuff.
  3. Talk to strangers.
  4. Stay in touch.
  5. Stop bitching, venting, and complaining. They don’t make you happier.
  6. Go outside. Vitamin D is better than drugs.
  7. Don’t expect it to last forever. Everything ends and that’s okay.
  8. Stop buying useless crap.
  9. Make mistakes. Learn from them.
  10. Spread joy.
  11. Don’t bother with people you hate.
  12. Don’t become someone you hate.
  13. Play the hand you’re dealt.
  14. Choose not to take things personally.
  15. Don’t put it off.
  16. Help is everywhere.
  17. Give without limits and expectations.
  18. Be enthusiastic, dammit. Being above everything makes you an annoying prick.
  19. This too shall pass.
  20. You are already enough.
  21. What would you do if you weren’t scared? Okay, now do it.

If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.
