You have value. You were made in God’s image.
Don’t worry about tomorrow. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Do things that matter. Store your treasures up where they won’t rust or fade.
Don’t try to impress others. Do your best. Be yourself.
Be kind and courteous to others. Treat them like you would want to be treated.
Be a life-long learner. I don’t mean get as many degrees as you can; although there’s nothing wrong with that…I mean keep learning, keep growing. There is more than one way to get an education. God gave you a mind for a purpose. Don’t let it become stagnant.

Smile. Life isn’t so bad. Yes, there is a lot of ugliness and suffering in this world. Bad things happen to people; good and bad alike. Don’t focus on the negative things, but try to find the beauty and the good that coexists alongside all the junk this world dumps at your doorstep. Remember, it’s nothing personal. It happens to everybody.
Learn to forgive. Quickly.
Learn to hold on to things loosely. That’s what trust is all about.
As best you can, try to love others. They have value too. Just like you.
Take responsibility for yourself. It’s your job. No one else’s.
Guard your mind. Keep the faith. Love often.
