You will have your heart broken and you will break others’ hearts.
You will fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them. And you will cry because time is flying by.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love, like you’ll never been hurt.
Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances.
You will just have to live life to the fullest, tell people what they mean to you. Speak up! Dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend.
Fall asleep watching the sun came up. Stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts.
Don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love and live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.
Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.
Riding an ostrich like a fucking Chocobo.
