You can buy alcohol and chips with your parents’ gas station credit cards.
If you force something, you’ll break it. That could be good or bad.
It’s important to read the care tags on your clothing and follow those instructions.

Changing your car’s oil is not optional.
Whatever physical objects you acquire you will one day have to put into a box and move.
You’re allowed to disagree with negative feedback.

Nostalgia, like any drug, can be a poison or a remedy.

Good doctors listen more than they talk.

"The reality is a happily single person is just as happy as a happily married person. Focus on happy, not status. You’re too excellent to be worried about spending your life alone. Several men aren’t thinking about marriage, but there are several who are. That’s no concern of yours. Your concern should be you. I can’t stress enough that we pay attention to you when you pay attention to you. A woman’s greatest assets and attributes are revealed when she’s on her own journey of self-discovery. At your very best, you will attract the exact person intended for you. No gimmicks required. So sit back. Relax. Have some wine. Get to know you. Enjoy life and see what it brings. Good things are happening. Be a part of those things. Be fulfilled without a full calendar and your cell phone ringing. Eat out alone. Enjoy a movie by yourself. That’s how men find you…when you find you. It’s no wonder “me” comes before “men.” In order to secure the latter, you must secure the aforementioned."

I have been preaching this from a very young age and still today, I will live and die by this.
