“Take a step back. Fucking look at yourself. You are human. You are beautiful. You are so beautiful. And you can be anything. You can be everything. Do not hate everyone because someone broke your heart, or because your parents split up, or your best friend betrayed you, your father hit you, the kid down the street called you fat, ugly, stupid, worthless. Do not concern yourself with things you cannot control. Cry when you need to then let go when it’s time. Don’t hang onto painful memories just because you’re afraid to forget. Let go of things that are in the past. Forget things that aren’t worth remembering. Stop taking things for granted. Stop taking life for granted. Live for something. Live for yourself. Fall in love. Fall out of love. Fall in love. Fall out of love. Do this over and over until you know what it is to love someone. Question things. Tell people how you really feel. Sleep under the stars. Create. Imagine. Inspire. Share something wonderful. Meet new people. Make someone’s day. Follow your dreams. Live your life to it’s full potential. Just live, dammit. Let go of all the horrible things in your life and fucking live. And one day, when you’re old, look back with no regrets.”
At first this smelled like another cheezy “Don’t worry everything’s going to be A-okay” quote. But then I read it. And read it again. It was a great reminder on the dos and don’t of life. Except for the sleep under the stars part. I live in Los Angeles. We don’t have those kind of stars. So to the person that sent me this, thank you for sharing. I needed to hear this today.
Keep leaning forward,
