the puritan code
1; fear will not **** you, but it can eat you alive and make your insides rot.
2;you must allow yourself to thaw before you can melt--the cold was meant to allow you to feel your own heartbeat. don't ignore it
3; you are alive, even if just barely. make sure to lift your eyes to the sun to know that it still shines even amongst the dark.
4; breathe in with your nose and out through your mouth. you are a passageway for ancestral air and you should take that responsibility seriously.
5; your blood is not special, nor is it ordinary.
6; it is only by chance that you are here. a line of perfectly timed decisions birthed you--remember why you're here.
7; look at the mountains. they were here before you and will be long after you're gone. one day you will become the air that surrounds it.
8; you can lose your footing, but don't despair. sometimes you fall into a new path and it's like breathing in clarity you've never once known.
9; listen to what you're body tells you, it knows you better than you think.
10; when everything turns to dust remember you have the ability to start over. it cannot harm you to wipe the slate clean
