2017's To Do List
- Do not invest in temporary things.
- Long drives and poetry.
- Take the love that does not bruise.
- Lose 30 pounds of sorrow.
- Change the batteries.
A dead clock may be right twice a day.
But it’s time to stop living in the past.
- Clean out the closet.
Donate to charity.
But throw away the coat that still clings to the smell of him.
- This year, you asked for too much.
You wanted to love
And to be loved as ferociously in return.
This time, strive to be the reason someone stayed.
Want someone to be able to say
Loudly and without hesitation:
I didn’t jump because of her.
- Repaint the gate.
- Change the lightbulb.
- Buy a welcome mat.
- Unlock your heart.
- Don’t choose who enters.
Choose who doesn’t.
