Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes
you cannot even breathe deeply, and
the night sky is no home, and
you have cried yourself to sleep enough times
that you are down to your last two percent, but
nothing is infinite,
not even loss.
You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day
you are going to find yourself again.
- Get some cheap dishes and break them when you get upset.
- Learn how to say “NO” and don’t feel guilty about it
- Buy something frivolous for yourself once in awhile, like a new hat.
- Never again do anything you don’t want to do.
I want the blue sky that I see in the distance to hurry up and take over all the cloud space.
I want to go running around the lake in my new special short running leggings.
I want to lay on the beach and get a tan.
I want to have some cocktails on the porch.
(I need to shave my legs, and I need to memorize/practice my music for the performance tomorrow…I also probably need to take some allergy medicine and do a little bit of laundry.)
