Life isn’t about keeping score. It’s not about how
many people call you and it’s not about who you’ve
dated, are dating or haven’t dated at all. It isn’t
about who you’ve kissed, what sport you play, or which
guy or girl likes you. It’s not about your shoes or
your hair or the color of your skin or where you live
or go to school. In fact, it’s not about grades, money,
clothes or colleges that accept you or not. Life isn’t
about if you have lots of friends, or if you are alone,
and it’s not about how accepted or not accepted you are.
Life just isn’t about that.
But life is about who you love and who you hurt. It’s
about how you feel about yourself. It’s about trust,
happiness and compassion. It’s about sticking up for
your friends and replacing inner hate with love. Life
is about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance and
building confidence. It’s about what you say and what
you mean. It’s about seeing people for who they are
and not what they have. Most of all, it is about
choosing to use your life to touch someone else’s in
a way that could never have been achieved otherwise.
These choices are what life’s about.
