Don't go looking for largest crowd to join, the loudest team to blend into, the most cliché ideas to adopt as your own. Don't make yourself the fool in order to fit in. Don't be fooled by those who pretend to know everything. Be daring enough to be curious and vulnerable especially when learning something new and inspiring. Don't allow anyone to define which passions you attract. Be okay with being alone with those passions. Create spaces just for you allowing time for hearing your inner voice. Don't share everything that comes to your mind. When you most want to talk, at first and at times, remain silent for a season. Take in your surroundings. Speak up when the silence inside you can't be quieted. Then you roar! Make your words count.
Seek out unfamiliar people, cultures, food, art, customs and language. Just do it! Above all remember the flares and marked posts from your past. Remember who taught you first and their history in you. Be brave and daring. Take risks and be bold. Be both trusting but discerning in all affairs.
Love Christ first and keep his words on your lips. Take him with you wherever you go. Call home just because. Ask for help the moment you need it.
Be a good and supportive friend to the universe.
