Don’t forget to have fun learning. Don’t forget to find out what your purpose is in life. It is purposeful. At end of every journey, always find out, what purpose did it fulfill? What life did it give you? And don’t stay there, stuck like a rock. Move on to your breath-taking-future. Make mistakes. Don’t be afraid of them. Make a lot of them. Don’t stay stagnant in your fears. Speak, don’t be afraid to express yourself, your worries. Don’t you be afraid to cry. There will always be someone to listen to you, and to catch your tears. Learn the lessons behind every mistake. When you learn those lessons, you will try to avoid them in the future. This is also purposeful, or life-giving.
