The imperfection 

You’re stuck in traffic. Life sucks. It’s all very hard except it isn’t. We make it suck. It’s all relative. When you’re born privileged you feel entitled to things to be perfect. They aren’t and never will be. 
The lesson here is to chill when it isn’t perfect. You’re terrible at this. You want to know why everything happens the way it does. You can’t know. You might never know. Not until you’re perfect. I love you but we both know you’re not perfect. Not until you get here.
So in the midst of madness and insecurity; what to do? Dance. Smile. Listen to music. Say positive affirmations. There’s never NOTHING to do. 
Even in desperate times, there’s something to be done. People think it’s hopeless. It’s not. 
You didn’t get the raise at work you know you deserved? Well, you can whine and cry but it’s not gonna change a thing. Instead carry on with the job and focus on the very little good it has. And let it motivate you to find something better. If it feels like the wrong job it’s because it is. WAKE UP! You’re better than that. 
I know you lack confidence so keep working on that. Keep working on yourself, your art. The dark path doesn’t have to be an ugly one. Embrace the mess. It makes for a better story. 
Love always,

The living

It’s funny how people live. They truly forget what matters. Also, the drama. So much of it is unnecessary. We shouldn’t need much to be happy. Some people are very organized with their lives, others cannot stay inside the lines. You like to run around in your mind and then feel guilty about it. Don’t. Have you ever wondered who made the rules? No one did. So don’t follow them. 
Be kind and do what feels right but don’t live life according to anyone or anything. No one is imposing that on you. You do it to yourself. 
The ups and the downs make a life. Being with someone or being alone is a life. Having money or not having money is a life. Don’t be so quick to judge. Try to be nicer to yourself and others. Try to LET IT GO. We hold on tightly to things that do not matter. 
Live today and live it calmly. Be yourself and don’t apologize. Don’t complain and don’t get used to misery. It’s hard to get rid of it later. Make it a habit to be happy and most of your life will feel worthy. 
Enjoy kids and their unapologetic authenticity. Smell the flowers. Create. Sing. There’s enough to be grateful for. Focus on what you’ve done and not on how you’ve failed. 
Live your life. Don’t worry. Be you. Enjoy the boredom. Strive for interesting. If you don’t like the life you’re living, create a better one and if you can’t: write a better one. There’s always a way out. There’s always something that makes you want to keep going. 
Live. Live. Live

Love always,

You

Words are heavy but actions are worth the weight of silver. Words are uttered into the wind and difficult to catch. Words crave to create gold but I’ve always been fond of the silver lining. Words are deceiving depending on how much meaning they contain within their letters. They lose meaning when actions reflect their opposite. Words have the power to make promises but only actions hold the key to keep them.

Actions are underrated and taken for granted. Actions reflect truth, always. Why would it matter whether you say I love you if what you do is what shines most. Actions remain floating in my subconscious and I replay the scenes over and over again. Actions have the power to remain as long as we crave for them to stay, even forever. Actions become infinite and that’s when it all becomes worthwhile.

The light wants you to stay but the darkness fears you won’t. I don’t want red to be blue without you but instead have a constant green that never vanishes. I want you to remain but more importantly, for you to desire to stay wherever my restless heart desires to be.

I asked what you wanted and you said: “you.”

You asked what I wanted and I said: “you.”

Desire should control its urges. I do not want more than what I have. I want you to fly but more importantly, I want you to be free. I want you near, but more importantly I want your happiness. I crave for this to last but even more so for it to be real.

I asked what you wanted and you said: “you.”

You asked what I wanted and I said: “you.”

You have shown me how to place more importance in the actions than in words. You have shown me what love should be like. You want me as much as I want you. You inspire me not to change. You proved me wrong when I doubted your existence. You walked in and gave me no choice but to jump into the volcano. As scary as it was, you made it inevitable. Your words sweeten the days and your actions paint the sky the color of joy.

I asked what you wanted and you said: “you.”

You asked what I wanted and I said: “you.”
