The Perception of Entitlement
Wake Up and Smell the Roses
Don't expect anything from others. I find that expectations are our worst enemies. They affect us in relationships, work and even day to day transactions. When you expect something to be a certain way, it will most likely always fall short and rarely exceed your suppositions.
Be optimistic! Although it may be hard at times, it's always best when you try to have a good outlook on things. You'll even find that things just happen to fall into place much better when you set aside the bad feelings and really push yourself to look on the bright side of things. You can't change the past, but you can make the future brighter by learning from your past experiences. Push yourself to make the right decisions and better help you reach your goals.
Your Life is a Privelege
No matter what life brings you – the good, the bad – your experiences help build you! They have helped create the person that makes you who you are, use that to your advantage and be amazed at how much your life is truly a blessing. Take time to thank the people around you even if they aren't someone you are close to - the taxi driver, the waitress, the random person holding the door open for you. Appreciate others and they will appreciate you.
Also, allow yourself some relaxation! Life can be stressful. Making decisions can be hard. Things just don't work out all the time and that's life! So...Find healthy ways that help you relieve stress. Note, you might want to make a list of long term and short term options. For example, a short term option could be counting down from 10 to 1 in your head; a long term option might be sitting in your favorite spot and reading a chapter of your current book. This will allow you to overcome stress in various situations.

I don't even know what to add, this is the perfect representation of what's in my mind. So I won't say a shit and I'll contemplate the rising sun. Because yes, it's 8:00 am here.
