  • LOVE yourself first and foremost, for when you truly love yourself, loving those around you will come as easily as breathing - and we all must breathe.
  • LEARN your life's lessons - each as it comes - for that is the reason we are here.
  • ENJOY your life, because if you do not, someone else will enjoy it for you, and your time here will have been wasted.
