Make Your Own Rules

In Germany, we love to tell people what not to do. Especially with signs. 

It’s one of the many reasons why, generally speaking, it’s a rather pessimistic country. But a pessimistic country doesn’t have to make you a pessimistic person.

Forget the signs. Open a café and set up one of them “no wifi, just talk to each other” ones.

You can do whatever you want. 

Don’t let rules boss you around. Especially if they’re stupid rules.

Make your own rules.

Don’t break the law, but don’t let invisible fences determine the course of your life.

Because unlike your country, you only get to play once.
