Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn’t have the courage to say ‘yes’ to life?
This week, as you gaze up at the stars, as you breathe into the cool dark night, think about how much you’ve grown, think about all of the ways you’ve become strong, think of the ways you haven’t let yourself be wrecked by loneliness, by sorrow, by the whole harsh world. This week, honor the ways you’ve learned to get through, the ways you’ve learned to build magic inside your own heart. Hold on to these hot glowing powers, and keep going, and be kind. Pet a dog. Cook someone dinner.
