1) I will surround myself with beautiful things. I will appreciate nature and art and words.
2) I will surround myself with fun things. Like margaritas, Cadbury Eggs and music I can dance to.
3) I will surround myself with interesting people — like the friends I already have, and, when I find them, other creative dorks and odd ducks.
4) I will learn to live in peace, then show other people how.
5) I will figure out how much I’m capable of loving, and how much someone is capable of loving me.
6) I will remember that the world is big and I am small. I will see as much of it as humanly possible, whether that means inspecting every blade of grass in my backyard or visiting the capitol of every nation.
7) I will leave something behind that will outlive me. Hopefully more than one thing.
