Take the road less traveled. Take chances. Live with a healthy fear of dying every day. Dream bigger. Dream big enough it scares you. Work hard for those dreams. Put everything into what you love. Never be too serious not to laugh or do something wild every once in a while. Dance 25 hours of the 24 hour day and do other impossible things. Never be too afraid of something to risk it. Never be too afraid to lose something you don’t love it with every bit of your soul.

Live your story. Write stories. Watch movies and read books. Fill your mind with a million beautiful stories.

Talk to strangers. Ask people how they’re doing. Love everyone. Don’t take your friends for granted. Never forget the people in your life. Don’t forget the family members who have loved you even before you were born. Don’t forget the ones who care. Most of all, don’t forget the ones who don’t care. They’re important, too.

Listen to those songs that bring back feelings. Feelings are good and make you feel more alive. Don’t dwell in the past, but let your past define you by never making the same mistakes twice. Remember.

Stargaze every night you can. Walk through cities at night. Stare at the moon when it’s full and take walks in the dark when it snows. Watch the sunrise whenever possible. Never go a long time without a road trip. Go to coffee shops and farmers markets whenever possible. Love trains and airplanes because everyone who gets on one goes somewhere. Go for walks in the morning time. Stick your feet in the ocean when you can. Dance in the rain and run around in yard at night. Have wet hair and wear flip-flops whenever possible. Save photos, even when they’re blurry, if they’ll be a memory someday.

Don’t miss chances. Let every chance, every person, and every moment define you. Let city lights and strong memories transform you. Remember this earth is not your home. Give away all the things that are not even really yours. Have your heart set on what happens next, but love now because it’s happening.

Remember the glorious truth by which we were saved. Don’t believe everything you hear, believe the Word. Pray without ceasing. Be radical. Stand up for The Faith. Never stop singing Hallelujah. Fight the good faith. Finish the race. Complete the course. Do it all for only His glory because we were created for that purpose.

Be bold. Be compassionate. Be steadfast. Be honest. Be faithful. Be forgiving. Be full of courage. Be wise. Be reckless. Be genuine. Be alive.

Fall in love. Climb that mountain. Awake your soul. Breathe. Run free. Repeat.
