My buddy. My person. My best friend. Miss you terribly Allie G. 💙

As a kid your world is small and your imagination big. Your problems small, and your smile big. But as soon as you grow older, life is changing faster and faster and you can’t keep up with the pace of the world. And suddenly you are in your twenties and you wonder if you will ever understand life. Keep on wondering. Life is difficult. It’s complex. Enjoy the complex simplicity.

I am writing this from a place of sincerity and genuine contentment that I have been blessed with. What I’m about to say, you ought to be paying close attention to. Read it, understand it, sleep on it, and be a better version of yourself the next morning. Sometimes we don’t get the love and respect we deserve but that’s only because we don’t try hard enough to love ourselves despite our imperfections. Sometimes we let the fear of being alone be the deciding factor and be satisfied just to settle. Sometimes we accept mediocrity because we don’t lift ourselves up enough. Piece of advice? Be picky; know your worth, your morales, your disciplines and never let anyone else take that away from you. Have goals in every phase of your life, it doesn’t matter if you have to reach it by yourself. Climb that mountain and don’t let anybody tell you how high you can go. When you start doing well for yourself, find solace, you’ll realize everything else will slowly come into place because you know deep down, everything good that comes your way after that is just an added bonus. Shine through, don’t let anybody dimmer your light. You are made for this world to make an impact on at least one person’s life. Imagine being an inspiration, or a savior, in your own way, and if that isn’t magical, I don’t know what is. Get rid of toxicity and get ahold of a good support system. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate squad. Just remember, your mom and dad love you.

Work hard. Hard work always pays off. There’s nothing better than feeling proud of yourself, and how far you have come. Find the little things that make you happy in life, because when you do, it makes it easier to fix a bad day. Don’t depend on anyone else. You yourself are strong and knowledgeable. You know what’s best for you, no one else does. Make your own happiness and success and let all the other people just be accents. Fight for love. Don’t ever let the people you love the most go. Especially your soul mate. Fight for the ones you care about and if they feel the same way they will fight just as hard for you. Love is heavy, but it’s worth carrying. Don’t be insecure. Being insecure is not attractive and only brings yourself down. Be grateful that you are one of a kind, and use it to your advantage. Don’t let people walk over you. You are strong, and you need people to know that. No matter what, fight for yourself and your opinions. You need to be heard and you need to let people know that they can’t judge you. Everything comes in waves. All the good shit and the bullshit. Be patient, and breathe. The happiness is coming in the next set of waves, you just have to let this wave break first. Don’t care what anyone thinks, because at the end of the day you are the only person that will be with you for your entire life. Please yourself. Be proud of yourself. Don’t feel the need to please others. Stay calm, talk calm, be calm. It’s the only way things will be okay. Panicking or freaking out all the time is a waste of energy and gets absolutely nothing done. Don’t take anything for granted. All it takes is one second and everything can change. Enjoy every moment.

It’s important to subside subconscious stress that eats away at your motivation and kills your happiness, most things that you think mean the world to you right now, won’t have any influence on the future you years from now. What will effect you years from now is the regret that you didn’t live to the fullest due to unimportant stress. You can be your worst enemy, but you can also be your greatest hero. It’s a matter of perspective.

Next time you’re stressed, take a step back, inhale, and laugh. Remember who you are and why you are here. You’re never given anything in this world that you cannot handle. Be strong, be flexible, love yourself, and love others. Always remember to keep moving forward.

We’re all gonna die. We don’t get much say over how or when. But we do get to decide how we’re gonna live. So do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live. Is this the person you want to love. Is this the best you can be. Can you be stronger. Kinder. More compassionate. Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out. And decide.

The only dream worth having is to dream that you will live while you are alive, and die only when you are dead. To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.

Breathe. Don’t be crass. People of your generation are graceless. It’s an affront to nature. Mediocre people will see you and feel themselves wilting in your shadow. Do not shrink to console them. Do not look for friends, you wont find them. None of these people have the capacity to understand you. They never will. If you’re lucky, one day when you’re old and shriveled, you will be content, with little regard for anything but what makes you happy. Until then read a good book. You have greatness in you. Don’t disappoint.

A couple of soul mate adventourous friends enjoying the view. Take a second to breath after reading this. Maybe close your eyes and be awakened by the senses around you. You are here, and no matter what may be going on for you, know that you are loved by a couple of strangers that have never met you. Namaste friends!

Some nights you will feel like there are a thousand galaxies exploding in every inch of you and you are burning too bright to ever be looked at directly, and some nights you will feel impossibly small, like your whole body could slip through the spaces between atoms and never reappear in this world again, and some nights you will feel like a paper doll, carefully crafted and easily blown away, fragile, too delicate to ever be touched, and some nights you will feel like each cell in your body is made of the strength that holds the whole planet together, and that is okay, because you are made of stardust and minuscule atoms and breakable bones and the building blocks of everything in the universe, and you are too alive to never feel anything more than human.
