3. Enjoy the Little Things and Be Present

“It demands a kind of attention and presentness. It’s also good to go out and think a little bit, so you can get lost in the now. Or you can also kind of reflect.”

“Sometimes we get so caught up in our daily lives that we forget to take the time out to enjoy the beauty in life.”

4. Hard Times Don’t Define Us

“Every struggle in your life has shaped you into the person you are today. Be thankful for the hard times, they can only make you stronger.”
