Give a little bit. Don’t live in the past, don’t dwell. Write things down. Empathy is the goal, and it’s not a weakness. Live like it’s your first day on earth – curious and excited – not like it’s your last. Accept what is gone; accept the facts about what is never coming back, and why its not. What’s good for the ego isn’t always good for the soul. Happiness is a choice. Read, and read some more; enjoy looking for, and finding, a book to read. Visit your local library. Forgive yourself for your mistakes. Spend a lot of time with your kids. Stop and take three deep breaths. Swim in the deep end. Sing. Keep moving, every day. Make a greeting card for someone you love. Take mass transit. Keep learning. Keep in touch. Fear and revenge can be huge motivators. Always be curious. If its important, make the time. Get to a beach whenever you can. Listen more. Patience is not only a virtue, it can also be a bitch. Get your pets spayed and neutered. Revel in the sheer beauty and amazing ability that’s in this song. Make every kiss fantastic. Hold hands a lot. Don’t be fooled, don’t have a lot of debt. Stare at a crow until it flies away. Keep in touch with people more than you already do. Don’t be a dick; be nice to people. Say “hello” to the clerk in the store, the bus driver, the mail carrier, etc. Road rage is for morons. Have life insurance. Use less plastic: reduce, reuse, recycle. In the end, music, always music. Tell that person you love every day that you love them. Look forward to things. Have fun. Be present.
