Give yourself credit. Be compassionate towards yourself. Pat yourself on the back for how far you've come! Acknowledge that in a year, a lot has changed!
Play. Play like you did when you were a kid. What was your favorite? The slide, swings, sandbox? Go to an amusement park—Zip-line in a new country. Dig your toes into the sand. Do a handstand in the pool or sea. Jump into the pool, and splash in the waves. Dance like someone is watching; you!
Travel and learn about your strengths. Be adventurous. Surprise yourself.
Smile. It feels better in your body than to frown or pout. Give yourself a chance.
You can be the best friend you've always wanted. You can forgive yourself for the mistakes you've made. Permit yourself to live the life you've been yearning to experience.
Even if you take the wrong path, it's the right path. You will learn and choose again. Keep choosing joy. Keep choosing love. Keep choosing to live. You are alive; it's time to be and be proud.
