FOR MY LOVED ONES, A BIT OF WISDOM, NOT THAT i HAVE MUCH TO SHARE OR ANYTHING:
Respond in every situation with love. Take ego out of the equation. Remember that speech is a privilege, it's sole purpose being education. Cherish every moment, even the bad ones, it could be your last. Don't be selfish with kindness, it benefits everyone. Forgiveness is not a weakness, it means that you accept what happened in the past cannot be changed. Don't be afraid to speak the truth, it will set you free. Don't forget your manners, you never know how bad someone else's day has been.
Stop worrying about eating bread, if it was good enough for the apostles, it's ok for you too. Besides, it goes great with wine, another favorite of the apostles. Smile frequently, you'll feel better. Listen with your heart, you'd be surprised what you might have missed. Hug old people, they need it. Always smile at children, it gives them hope.
Can't think of anything else off the top of my head, but if I do, I'll be sure to let you know.
