Don’t be afraid of the pink slip, because it just means a better job is around the bend. Don’t run from the haircut, in fact tell them to take another inch. And if you get stuck in charm school, soak it up and then run through the mudholes in your bare feet on the way to the bus stop.
Get out there live fearlessly. Learn and love all that this life has to offer and let it explode in your face so you can feel the heat that comes from being alive.
