1. If you give love, you will get love. But no pressure—only if you want to!

2. Peace starts inside you. And if you can’t get it to start, I can give you mine instead. Would be happy to!

3. Love is the greatest gift, though I’m sure any gift from you would be amazing. And if you didn’t get me a gift, that’s totally okay too. I probably made it really unclear that gifts are welcome. My bad.

4. The universe is made of pure joy, so don’t waste it. Hope that doesn’t sound too intense. I just mean that if you want joy, it’s definitely there for you to take—but only if you feel like it.

5. You only get one life, so live it the way you want to, but also don’t feel you have to listen to me. No stress if you want to do your thing.

6. Your joy can change the world, but I also know you’ve been super busy, so if this isn’t a good time to change the world, you can do it whenever is good for you. And if there isn’t a good time, it’s truly very okay.

7. Laughter is the soul cleansing itself—not that I think your soul needs cleansing. I’m just sharing this in case you want to cleanse it. And, anyway, I’m probably wrong, so never mind.

8. Believe in yourself.1

9. Trust the process. Not that I’m suggesting you don’t—I’m sure you do… I should just shut up.

10. Sometimes, all you need to do is take a deep breath. (I feel like this sounds super passive aggressive, but I swear it’s not.)

11. Embrace fear if you have fears. I don’t want to assume you have fears just because I have them. Oh great, and now I made this about me. Sorry!

12. Sharing is its own reward, but I also don’t want you to feel you have to share. In other words, if you want to share, great, but if you don’t, that’s great too. You’re great!

13. Everything will be okay. If that’s okay with you, of course.

1 What was I thinking? This sounds really dumb. I’m dumb. So, ignore this one—better yet, just ignore me!
