Laugh, even when you feel too sick or too worn out or tired. Smile, even when youre trying not to cry and the tears are blurring your vision. Sing, even when people stare at you and tell you your voice is terrible. Trust, even when your heart begs you not to. Sleep, even when youre afraid of what the dreams might bring. Run, even when it feels like you cant run any more.
And, always, remember,
even when the memories pinch your heart. Because the pain of all your experience is what makes you the person you are now. And without your experience - you are an empty page, a blank notebook, a missing lyric. What makes you brave is your willingness to live through your terrible life and hold your head up high the next day. So dont live life in fear. Because you are stronger now, after all the crap has happened, than you ever were back before it started.
