1. Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making plans.
2. Let go of your grudges, even if you know you’re 100% right and they’re 100% wrong. Just end it.
3. Giving is living.
4. Everyone has pain. Everyone has a story.
5. Help comes in the most unlikely ways.
6. When we lose someone we love, instead of asking why did Gd take them, ask why did Gd give them to us? What did we do to deserve their love, their sweetness, their goodness? Those moments are a gift.
7. Every life touches another life in some way.
8. You’re not a wave. You’re part of the ocean. We’re all a part of the ocean.
