Things To Tell Yourself Every Day
"You can't control everything, but you can control you." -- So you can't control everything that happens today. You don't have that kind of power. But, what you do have power over and control of is you. You get to control what comes out of your mouth, what doesn't, the actions you take, the way you react to things. Everything you do is a choice, and you're the one who makes it... so make them choices that you can be proud of.
"You don't have to be perfect." -- This isn't a contest, it's just life. It doesn't really matter who gets to the end with the most money, the coolest cars, the most followers on Twitter. What matters most is the love you make and the people you are in relationship with. But, it's okay if you mess up. And it's okay if you fall down. You don't have to be perfect... there aren't extra ribbons for that.
"You have a lot to offer... but if you keep it hidden, no one will know who you really are... and who you really are is actually kind of cool." -- It's okay to be you. Not some perfect version of you... but just really you. And you don't have to apologize for that person or twist them into someone they really aren't. Just be you. "You" is pretty cool, and if you just let "you" out a little bit more, other people would see that too.
