IMPORTANT REMINDER

1. Life goes by really fast! Enjoy every moment and don’t spend too much time sweating the small things. 
2. Time heals all and what seems like a big deal today - you may not even remember a few days or years from now. Try not to overthink or worry so much. 

3. You don’t have to live a life that makes you unhappy. If something is bothering you: fight to change it. You are allowed to change, grow and evolve. 

4. Take pictures and cherish them. They are SO fun to look back on and will put a smile on your face.
