Balance is Key
Devote yourself to everything you do but don't just devote yourself to one thing while failing to care for other aspects of your life. It may work for a little bit, but things will start to break down. Don't go down that path of self-destruction.
Work Hard but stay humble
If you work too much and find no time for anything else in your life, what will happen? The other areas of your life will start to weaken. Your relationships will start to dwindle, your partner may feel neglected, you start to put off your old hobbies, you can become stressed and tired. Of course, work is important to secure our future, but don't lose yourself (or loved ones) in this process. There are other things you can work towards in life. Money isn't all life is about. I have always believed that "money comes and goes, but memories with those you care about are forever." Both are important, so always make time for both.
Overindulgence is a dangerous thing
We all know that alcohol can taste so good and be so refreshing. There is nothing better than a nice cold cocktail in the middle of the summer or after a long and trying day at work. Like a tonic, it can make you feel good, loosen you up, and stimulate your senses. But like a poison, it can make you angry, make you feel sick, and can turn you into a completely different person. Know your limits with everything in life. Enjoy it but don't go overboard.
If you know me, you know that I love to eat. I love food. Also, we all know that things that taste so good aren't the best for you. There are some things I can eat daily, but I know that if I overdo it, it can cause so much damage to my body. Enjoy your favorite things in moderation. Your body will thank you for it and you will be happy.
Seriously, don't be so serious
Make time to laugh and have fun! Smile often and don't take things so seriously! There is something wonderful about seeing someone smiling and laughing. Happiness and enjoyment can be contagious and it feels so damn good. Energy is transferred to other people so share this good energy any chance you get. Sometimes it's okay to let loose and enjoy life. Lighten up and have some fun.
Balance is so important with everything that you do!
Appreciate your nights in relaxing and just "chilling", but enjoy your nights out too. Be loud, be fun, be "extra", but don't become obnoxious. Laugh like you have never laughed before, but also be peaceful and humble. Be strong and take care of yourself but also know that it's okay to be weak sometimes and rely on others. Be there for others but also be a little selfish. All of this is okay and so needed.
Be passionate about everything you do in life, but make sure you always find time for other things that are important. Balance is key!
