(I wish someone told me what to ignore when I was younger because I used to stress a lot over this bullshit when I was young). It is super important that all of us narrow down the list of things that are most important to each of us. Without a doubt, self-awareness and intellectual honesty are paramount to happiness and success in life. I have discovered (yet again) that everything we need is what is in our hearts: love, family, friendship, dreams, passions, and truth. For me, the simplest rule for happiness is intrinsic > extrinsic. Listen to your heart. And ignore the rest.
Let us make 2020 the greatest year of our lives yet!
