Here are Kamil's "Five Rules For Life":
1.) Don't panic.
We're doomed - that's generally true. But, in the meantime, we can be brave and happy. Sure, there's a small list of things you should avoid - especially when you're young - like long term commitments, or life/health hazards...but the message is: enjoy your freedom. And first of all - stay calm.
Don't only think about things, but breathe them - engage your sweat and blood. Be part of it, not apart from it. And over all - share with others.
You have one source of income? Cool, work on another one. You love your partner? Marvelous, don't forget about your friends. You feel great with children? Awesome, just keep in mind they will be gone in 10 years. Get ready.
editor's note - the only constant is change!
4.) Believe in your choices.
Are you feeling you've landed somewhere or with someone by accident? How so? Everything you are now is either the result of many decisions or just an inertial force. Much better that it is decisions - your decisions. Listen to feedback, but don't let people sabotage your plans. Almost everyone has this inclination to give advice, but not always with good will. And rarely do they have better knowledge of the situation than you have.
5.) Acknowledge that nothing is as it seems.
Appearances can really be misleading. Less is more, big is small - it depends how much you research it. And be ready for surprises. Did you know that Jimi Hendrix was a very shy guy? Not to mention that Jack Nicholson was growing up with his sister and she turned out to be his mother!
