1.First and foremost, live it the way you want, not the way society desiginates or you think the way others would accept. 2.Never forget where you came from and what made you who you are or where you want to go in life. 3. Never lose your sense of humor, regarding yourself or life.
"Whatever..I'm Still Here" based on the above life issues...
1) Live "your" life. Life is a journey and an adventure - be authentic and follow your own path. Write your own "story".
2) Communicate. Share your ideas and perceptions and experience. Tell your stories and listen to those of others. If we don't communicate well, we don't understand one another. If we don't understand one another we leave ourselves in a state of mistrust and fear.
3) Find your "Life-theme"... combine your talent and passion and follow your heart into what Sir ken Robinson calls your "Element"!
