Your body doesn’t react the same way that it used to.

Not everyone makes it to your future.

You’re going to fail many more times than you actually succeed.

You have to love yourself FIRST.

“We accept the love we think we deserve.” — Stephen Chbosky

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I’ll go to it laughing.” — Herman Melville
