Never lose patience. That is what has kept me sane for the past eighteen years. Even if things seem terrible— your bakery fails, you’re alone, you’re unhappy— remember to be patient. Good things will come in time.
But also, never become too comfortable. If your bakery does fail, try again. If you’re alone or unhappy, do something about it.
And never ever lay all of your trust with one person. You may think you’re comfortable in a relationship, but they can turn and break everything you had with one move.
And buy lots of cats.
