  32. Having a mini me is a level of happiness and awe I can’t explain. 
  33. Empathy is a necessity for all relationships.
  34. Too much empathy is exhausting, coming from a empath.
  35. “Hustle” for your goals, but only if you want. Life balance is highly underrated. 
  36. It’s okay if you’re not Type A. Figure out how YOU work best and do that.
  37. Just about everyone is dealing with something. And nobody wins comparing who’s got it worse.
  38. Make moves. Take a leap. Don’t deliberate too long. Career paths are full of trials and errors and experimenting working in different fields or specialties until you find what you love. 
  39. Success is simply waking up in the morning in a good mood. 
  40. STOP. GIVING. SO. MANY. F*CKS.

    No one will ever analyze you the way that you do. And no one will ever love you the way that you do. Finding a healthy mental balance of that without slipping into self-absorption and/or narcissism OR anxiety and/or depression is the ultimate goal. We have to love ourselves. But our true selves. ALL the stuff, without being fake or projecting a better version of ourselves to avoid. We have to learn to love our flaws and flaunts. Our strengths and weaknesses. Because we ALL have them. You, me, Leo, Beyonce, Bezos…. we’re all human. We’re all the universe observing itself as each other. Again…. we’re all the universe observing itself as each other.

    Love yourself and take steps to love living in your life!
