Life is not all rainbows and butterflies. It can be tough sometimes.  And you have paid a heavy price to get this far, so the best option is to really make it count by moving forward from where you are..

Promise to fight harder, to laugh louder and longer and slap difficulty whenever it dares to stand against you.  Make these promises to yourself, and keep them forever.

Not hold the past – Your problems, your weaknesses, , regrets and mistakes teach you if you are willing to learn, or they will punish you if you’re not.   So let them teach you, every day.

Own your life and never deny responsibility for it – It’s always your fault, because if you want to change, if you want to let go and move on with your life, you’re the only person who can make it happen.  It’s YOUR move to make.  It’s YOUR responsibility.  Own it!

Listen to yourself –Pay attention to your authentic feelings, and follow where they lead.  When you are following your inner voice, doors tend to eventually open for you .Live a life that feels right to me, not one that looks right to others

Let go relationships that are obviously not meant to be – Sometimes it will feel weird when you realize you spent so much time with someone you are no longer connected to, but that’s exactly how it’s supposed to be.  You are exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Never let any situation steal your smile – Even when times are tough, take a moment to pause and remember who YOU are.  Take a moment to reflect on the things that have real and lasting meaning in your life.  And then smile about how far you have come.  Honestly, nothing in this world is more beautiful and powerful than a smile that has struggled through the tears.

Celebrate and appreciate the life you have – Focus on what you can do today, not on what you could have or should have done yesterday.  Remember, for everything you have lost, you have gained something else.

Realize and use your power to make a difference – In a world filled with doubt, you must dare to dream.  In a world filled with anger, you must dare to forgive.  In a world filled with hate, you must dare to love.  In a world filled with distrust, you must dare to believe

Stretch yourself beyond your level of comfort – Just because you are struggling doesn’t mean you are failing.  Every great success requires some type of worthy struggle to get there.  Stretch yourself over and over again, making mistakes, learning from those mistakes and stretching yourself even farther.

Embrace the changes you need to make – Life is a balancing act of holding on and letting go..  Relationships, jobs, and even the cities we live in have expiration dates.  Sometimes we hold on to what’s not working out of fear that we won’t be able to adapt to necessary changes.  And thus, the outcome is always the same: more pain, immense frustration, and lasting regret.  Be smarter than that.  Embrace the changes you know you need to make.

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Promise to think only of the best, to work only for the best, and expect only the best. Promise to give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

Promise yourself and then prove it!
