Go to that party. Buy that dress. Take that nap. Fuck on that first date. Get that tattoo you always wanted. Take that shot of vodka. Sing that song you have in your head. Dye your hair that colour you want.
Don’t give a single fuck what others think. Life is too short to listen to rules or to society standards. What if you would die next week? What would you do different if you knew you did? Always live with that thought in the back of your head. Everything might be over sooner as you think so just follow your heart and do what it tells you so you don’t regret not doing something.
let people know you love them. it doesn’t have to be “i love you” said out loud; it can be so many little things, like remembering a special date or their favourite ice-cream flavour. taking them to a place that you know means something to them for no reason. make memories. show people how much they mean to you.
You will not be ready when the love of your life comes along. You also probably won’t be ready when you see the listing for your dream job or to buy a house or maybe have a kid…
If you wait on the feeling of ‘readiness’ you’ll be waiting forever and worse, you’ll miss the best of what’s in front of you.
