I may still not know what I want to be when I grow up, but I do know that someday I want to live in a house filled with my books and travel souvenirs. And the walls that aren’t covered in bookshelves will be covered with photos of my family and friends. When I leave the house I will be going to a job I love, and I’ll return to a person I love. So, that’s the dream I’m working on.

be still. be present.
feel everything in its entirety.
the moments, the emotions.
feel it all.

if you are afraid,
let it show. cry.
let your body tremble freely.
do not stifle your heart.

and do not muffle your laughter.
if it is funny, laugh.
laugh hard, laugh loud.
let it simmer and sit,
in the pit of your stomach.

be still. be whole.
live life like a child,
unaware of eyes;
absolute. present. whole.

pour love like it is water.
let it gush forth from your limbs.
in hugs, and smiles.
let it root, let it grow,
let it blossom and show.

and if the sadness broods,
if the waves wash over you,
be still.
breathe deep. breath hard.
let it come, all at once,
then - let it go.

bet still, sometimes,
just let yourself feel it all.
