Mine would be - Be yourself and dont change who you are to try and fit it or be the same as everyone else.

Be tolerant and don't judge people too much. Live and let live.

yes totally agree- support not thwart is my personal mantra. When did tearing people down become a public sport- and I am not meaning media or celebs just normal people trying to get through life. Think we can do better as a species- else we deserve to die out lol 🀣

Try anything that you want to, you may get things wrong and make a fool of yourself, but you learn by your mistakes and looking back (hopefully) you will have a laugh over what you did. If you don't make any mistakes how will you learn? Mistakes teach us more than getting things right first time....

Start saving for retirement right now, unless you want to work into your seventies! The earlier you start saving the earlier you can stop working.
