I wrote this back in 2009. And it is just as pertinent today as it was then.
Release the clutch of your fingers on the past. Be open to your present. Dream big for your future.
Be bold for we all have scars and would have no stories without them. Stay present. Continue to learn. Say yes to new opportunities. Explore new continents. Take time to be grateful daily. Meditate. Gather healthy coping skills. Exercise. Pursue your passions. Sing, dance, laugh, love, take risks, and LIVE.
