Yes, you. You’re awesome. No matter where you are from. It doesn’t matter what race you are, what country you are from, what you look like, what you do for work, or where you live. You’re awesome. I know it. And you know it even better than I do.
You have your whole life ahead of you. So turn that frown upside down, laugh, and put your favorite music on full volume. Dance and share your joy with others. Make the lives of those around you better every day.
Every day, make your best effort to be polite, considerate, and happy. Don’t discriminate against anyone or practice hate, treat everyone whom you meet with respect and never underestimate anyone’s intelligence.
Remember all of the talents that you have and contemplate what it means o be uniquely you. Realize that there are many people who are less fortunate than you are, and who probably wish they could be you. Think about all of the wonderful opportunities that you have been given and all of the good choices you have made in your life that got you to where you are today. Forget the bad, let go of the hate, take a deep breath, relax and believe in yourself.
If you ever feel like throwing in the towel after a long day think about all the good days to come in the future. Mother Theresa said it best when she inspired millions to live their best lives with this motivational quote:
“Your spirit is the duster of any spider web. Behind every finish line, there is a start one. Behind every success, there is another challenge. While you are alive, be alive. If you miss what you once did, do it again. Don’t live in yellow photos... Continue although everyone expects you to give up. Don’t let oxide the iron that is inside you. Do that instead of pity, and they will respect you. When because of years you cannot run, jog. When you cannot jog, walk. When you cannot walk, use a cane. But never stop!" – Mother Teresa of Calcutta
