1. Life isnصt fair, but itصs still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short not to enjoy it.

4. Your job wonصt take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Donصt buy stuff you donصt need.

6. You donصt have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
