1. Don't avoid or ignore negativity.
In order to conquer and overcome, it must be acknowledged. This can include people in your life who may be bringing you down, a hostile workplace environment or even a personal stressor that you haven't conquered quite yet. You are in control of your environment and if these negative situations keep making an appearance, it's up to you to handle them.
2. Take care of yourself and your needs.
In order to feel compelled to live a powerful and meaningful life, you must love you. Take care of your actions and how you live each day, and this will be reflected in your thoughts and emotional state of mind. Love yourself fully in order to love others fully.
3. Mend what's broken or get rid of it.
Determining what is worth your time and effort and what is not can be challenging. If situations are toxic and beyond repair, it's time to let go. Are there relationships or friendships that remain damaged but you know are worth the time? Fix them and find peace. Do what you can to find love in situations where it may have be absent in the past.
4. Give back.
Giving our time, energy, love, mentorship and sometimes money is what life is about. Everything we put out into the world comes back to us. My mom taught me a quote she learned in Mexico that stuck with me forever, "donde comen uno, comen dos." (where one can eat, two can eat.) It moves me every time I say it out loud. At the end of the day, no matter what you have you are likely in a position to give something small to someone else who needs it. Don't hesitate.
假设人生的真谛是给予我们的时间、能量、爱和师生情（金钱有时也是），我们向世界付出的一切便都会有所回馈。我母亲曾教过我她在墨西哥学到的一句话，让我永生难忘：“donde comen uno, comen dos.”（一人能食之处，也能供两人享用。）我每次大声读这句话时，都会被震撼感动。在世界末日，无论你拥有什么，你都有可能给予他人小小的一份心意，而这正是他们需要的。不要犹豫。
5. Things that make us smile, laugh and feel good are just awesome.
This one is pretty simple...Just do MORE of it. Do more of what makes you happy! I truly believe that in the super fast paced world we live in, happiness may not come as easily as we wish. In order to navigate through work and responsibilities that seem monotonous, we have to actively pursue and engage in beautiful acts of love and kindness. So get to it!
