seems slow suddenly and boring except
for my insatiable thinking towards you
as you lie asleep completely plotzed and
gracious"

And now I can believe they breathe in me

"
  1. Forget the past.
  2. Do stuff.
  3. Talk to strangers.
  4. Stay in touch.
  5. Stop bitching, venting, and complaining. They don’t make you happier.
  6. Go outside. Vitamin D is better than drugs.
  7. Don’t expect it to last forever. Everything ends and that’s okay.
  8. Stop buying useless crap.
  9. Make mistakes. Learn from them.
  10. Spread joy.
  11. Don’t bother with people you hate.
  12. Don’t become someone you hate.
  13. Play the hand you’re dealt.
  14. Choose not to take things personally.
  15. Don’t put it off.
  16. Help is everywhere.
  17. Give without limits and expectations.
  18. Be enthusiastic, dammit. Being above everything makes you an annoying prick.
  19. This too shall pass.
  20. You are already enough.
  21. What would you do if you weren’t scared? Okay, now do it.

"Your heart is like a great river after a long spell of rain, spilling over its banks. All signposts that once stood on the ground are gone, inundated and carried away by that rush of water. And still the rain beats down on the surface of the river. Every time you see a flood like that on the news you tell yourself: That’s it. That’s my heart."
