I have come to the realization, at this point in my life and truly at any point ; I am in no position to ever deny myself any bit of happiness.
I have been in a place over and over where happiness felt so far away from my grasp,
A place where simply existing in this world felt exhausting.
And all of us only get to be on this planet for so long, to not be in a constant state of being in love with living would be a sin.
Wear your absolute favorite shirt two days in a row because it makes you smile when you look in the mirror.
Kiss the boy who makes your head spin and your heart dizzy.
Spend the extra money on getting a good coffee.
Wake up earlier then you normally would to make a breakfast that makes you feel good.
Fall in love too often.
Skip class a couple of times, it’s not the end of the world.
Read books that force you to think about things differently and make you want to change your life.
Dance in the middle of an empty street.
Go for late night drives with the windows down as the street lights cast a glow on your face.
Play whatever music you want, as loud as you want, whenever you want.
Take pictures of your friends smiling, eating their favorite food, and just being alive ; put them all around your room as a constant reminder that you are loved by so many.
and remember through all of the storms you’ll have to face in this life, you’ll be okay.
more than okay.
