Open your eyes. You’re blessed. Appreciate everything more. You’re so lucky to have what you have. Everyone has their struggles, but there’s always something that elevates the negativity. Its right in front of your face, but you don’t give two shits or realize anything.
I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
You just have to endure. Don’t let it get the best of you. Hun, I know things get very irritating for you, but it’s okay. I promise the world has nicer things to offer. You’re doing just fine. Just don’t act upon anything. I’ll do anything to calm you down. Just don’t mind the small things. It will pass. Just focus on what’s now then we have the future to look forward to. I know their will be times, but just let it and pay no mind. I need to tell myself that too.
Date someone who begs to go down on you.
When you realise you’ve had one too many..
This was literally me when I was a young cub
"The goal is not to turn kids into your kind of adult, but rather, better adults than you have been. Progress happens because new generations grow and develop and become better than the previous ones.”
From Adora Svitak’s talk “What adults can learn from kids.” In her talk, Adora makes a case for why adults shouldn’t underestimate kids. And they shouldn’t. Kids are doing amazing things. Let’s just take a second to think about how Adora organized her first TEDxYouth event when she was just 12.
This weekend, young people around the world are attending, organizing, speaking at, and watching TEDxYouthDay events — TEDx events dedicated to the ingenuity of kids worldwide. Every year we’re taken aback by the amazing things that come out of these events, and we think you should be, too. Find a TEDxYouthDay event near you to attend or watch live online here.
