Make plans with yourself. Look in the mirror, smile at the reflection. Walk more often and walk more slowly - really feel where you’re going and feel the air around you. Laugh out loud. Life is fun and beautiful and you should never forget it.
It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.
I used to look at sunsets and feel sad. The day is ending. Time is running out. The pitch black sky of the night holds untold stories. Now I look up and see beauty. The kissing of day and night. Sometimes the dark is the only place to be free.
It’s good to be deeply in love - with books and art and food. Remind yourself why you exist.
