Everything is better when you're facing it with a cup of tea and a plate of cheese and biscuits. Trust me, I'm revising for exams atm and they can even make that better!

Dory the fish from Finding Nemo actually gave me the best tip for life, "Just Keep Swimming." That simple saying gets me through a lot.

My ultimate tip for life is to fight for what you believe in. If you want to achieve something GO FOR IT. IF you want pink hair, GET IT. Life is about learning who you are and want to be. So take chances and live it for yourself, not for others to be pleased.

My tip is to always carry a purse complete with the following: emergency sewing kit/duct tape (for all of those oopsie moments), peppermint gum (so you won't scare anyone away after those nachos), headache meds (so you can tackle anything), quarters (anything convenient accepts them), feminine products (because it's always trying to surprise you) and lastly your phone (because once you realized you survived the day, you should call your friends and go do something fabulous) <3

Tip for life: Give a little more of yourself every day than you think you can, and make sure that at least every other day that extra bit goes to yourself.

'For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction'

If something doesn't go your way, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, smile, and remember that everything happens for a reason. =] Even if you don't see it then, you will...eventually. <3

Live life as if nobody could judge you, and follow your dreams. Never let anyone hold you back, do the best you can, and don't be afraid of making mistakes or failing. You are a unique and special person. Let the world know what you believe and who you are. The only thing limiting your possibility is your dreams. There is no person just like you. Do what you can to make your mark and to change the world.

even if you are petrified - smile through it and do it. there is no point missing out on opportunities just because you're scared. the smile means no one knows you're petrified! helped with a fair few situations, especially a few (successful) job interviews!

"Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge."
Albert Einstein

I love Einstein because he has some of the most profound quotes. I try and live by this quote everyday, especially when it comes to DIY and crafting because being able to imagine the amazing things you can do yourself will always give you the drive to figure out a way to make it happen.

I think the three things I have learned and used the most have been:

Enjoy your independence - live your life how you want to live it
Don't define yourself by your career - a job is a job, its what you do outside of work and who you spend it with that really matters
And...
Learn to appreciate yourself - the most important approval you can have is your own

Don't be afraid to take a risk if it's something that really matters to you. Better to know what would have happened than to regret never having taken a chance. Once you are old your memories will keep you company, better to make them worth remembering!

See the bad things that happen as opportunities to give your life a kick start. I've been made redundant twice and ended up in better jobs both times as I've reviewed what I wanted and gone for it. Feeling sorry for yourself will only hold you back!

Recently I discover trashion (trash:useless and fashion). I search my wardrobe and drawers, find useless things I didn't like and change them in to usefull things that now I love. That made me thought that I can do the same with myself. Look inside me, find useless things that I don't like and change them into something that I love,...worship.

Learn how to filter instead of building walls to protect yourself from the hard things in life. You end up having less stress, more opportunities, and more happiness that way!

Just because they look at you, doesn't mean they're talking about you. If they are, you must be pretty important for them to be talking about you so much! Keep your head up and keep going about your life.

My ultimate tip for life is to only fill it with things that make you happy. Why fill it with tasks that we don't need or enjoy, or spend our time unhappy? If you aren't enjoying this moment, change it. Be impulsive and selfish with your own life and impact others to do the same.

My ultimate tip for life is not to regret anything. Just deal with your good and bad decisions and learn from them. Regretting the past helps nobody and only stresses you out.
