Go on. Cry as hard as you can. No one will see. Drink a cold beer in a hot shower. Make a silly face in the mirror. Eat something. Let your favorite playlist flow. Even if you’ve heard the songs a million times.
Breathe. Remember that chapters are supposed to end. Stories evolve. Hearts make mistakes. It’s okay to be broken. Forgive yourself.
Learn. Fill the canvas. Experiment with color. Break the rules. But don’t be a dick about it. Boundaries are more fun from the other side.
Love fiercely. Live unapologetically. Surrender to the ridiculous. Let experience run wild. Challenge expectations. Read everything you get your hands on.
Explore. Answer every call. Say yes more than you say no. Laugh at yourself before you laugh at others. Drink stolen champagne at dawn. Accept the moment.
Scars are beautiful. But secrets are a cancer only the truth can kill. Don’t listen to the monsters under the bed. Or the skeletons in the closet. They don’t know shit. And they lie, indiscriminately.
You don’t have to be that person.
Drop the baggage.
You only get one shot.
Make it fucking count.
