I hope you’re enjoying your stay here on planet Earth.
I’m sure the drive in was a little difficult, a little painful,
perhaps a little ****** (or a lot ******),
like moving from the darkest cavern to the brightest….
well, place. Area. Location.
I can’t think of anything superbly bright right now.
Oh, oh, I know.
It’s like living your whole life floating
in the very reaches of outer space and then
catapulting directly into the sun
I said I hope you enjoy your stay,
the key word being hope, because, well,
you may not enjoy it
In fact, it’s guaranteed that there are parts of life
that will be near-torturous,
that will make you wish you had never been brought
into this world
But with that also comes moments of happiness
unlike anything you will ever experience,
intense joy that makes you feel as though
you’re weightless once again,
floating out in space with no restraints,
no boundaries, just peace
The good will be great,
and the bad will be horrible,
and sometimes the good will be good
and the bad will be just bad,
it all depends on the day
A word of advice: treasure the time you have.
You won’t understand why this is important until you're older,
but do it anyway
Life fades just as quickly as it is brought to fruition,
and there are people on this Earth you will want to treasure
like they are the finest gold ever to be fished out of the land
There will be moments like this, too,
moments you wish would never fade,
and they will fade,
but never let them escape your memory,
and seek to make more of those moments every day,
even when happiness seems like an impossible dream
Life is the most difficult journey you will ever go on,
but has the possibility of being the most rewarding, as well
Allow the pain to be felt just as vibrantly as the happiness.
Never stifle your emotions.
Never limit others.
Never forget where you came from.
Never stop dreaming,
But never allow yourself to be tied down by those dreams, either.
do what makes you happy,
drink and make merry
(once you're legally allowed to, mind you),
and just be.
Exist to the great capacity you possibly can,
and die knowing you lived
Wishing you the greatest of luck,
a young dreamer
