I hope that when you fall asleep tonight, you’re thinking of the highlights of your life. I hope you don’t think about the time you broke down crying in the middle of class or when you cried yourself to sleep. I hope you don’t think of the time that dumb boy turned his back on you or you realized your best friend isn’t really a friend. I hope you don’t think about all the times you felt like a failure because of one bad grade, because my darling you’re not. I hope before you fall asleep tonight, you think of the time you saw a puppy on the street and your stomach was flooded with butterflies and your heart started racing. I hope you think of the time at your birthday when everybody was singing for you. I hope you think of that time you got an A on a test in a class you weren’t very good in. I hope before you fall asleep tonight, you remember that you are not defined by your mistakes and flaws. You are defined by what you do out of the goodness of your heart. All the times your eyes lit up when your favorite song came on, all those nights you were beyond hyper for absolutely no reason, and the times where you woke up feeling confident about the day. Life is so, so beautiful. Don’t focus on the negative, focus on the positive. It’ll be hard at first, but you’ll do it.
