A life dictated by the fear of tomorrow’s car repair or unexpected cost is no way to live. Trust us, money in the bank will help you sleep at night.
Live a little.
We humans are creatures of habit. We love our routines, but life’s too short for that. If you’re given an opportunity to experience something, say yes. Even if it’s outside your comfort zone or your schedule, say yes. Travel. Eat exotic foods. Try anything (OK, almost anything) once. If even you think you won’t enjoy yourself, do it. If nothing else, you’ll have a story to tell around a campfire someday.
Believe in yourself.
If you don’t, no one else will. Even if you’re making it up as you go, believe you’ll not only be OK, but that you’ll succeed. Don’t let fear of failure hold you back and keep you from trying. It’s amazing how far you can go if only you believe you can.
Just plain have fun.
Find the humor and excitement in everyday life. Those big moments — college graduation, marriage, first child, etc. — are only the punctuation marks of life. Don’t overlook the small wonders life brings every day.
Live. Live well. Live often.
