Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.

Always remember:

You are not a “maybe”, not a “tomorrow”, not a “let’s see”, not a “don’t know”…

You are a “HERE AND NOW”!

Do me a favor and imagine yourself in a white room.

Got it? Okay. Your entire life can fit inside of it. Now categorize everything. Put your childhood in a corner, your dreams on the ceiling, your upsets on the floor, and your accomplishments on the walls. Now, imagine yourself holding a can of paint in your favorite color. Still with me? Good. Now spin around and splash the hell out of that room. Really get into it. So, now you’re standing in a room with your childhood in a corner, your dreams on the ceiling, your upsets on the floor, and your accomplishments on the walls—and everything is blotched with paint. You know what each paint stain is? That, my friends, is where happiness can be found in your life. It’s everywhere and anywhere. What we do in this life is the key—how we spend the allotted time we have. Happiness is those moments that make you smile, that make you feel like all is right, that make you laugh until you wheeze, that make you feel the warmth of living. It’s anything and everything. It isn’t waiting for you at the end of your journey. So, veer off the beaten path. Get lost in yourself. Wander through all the paint. Get dirty. Spread your fingerprints all over this life. And let yourself be happy.

The mistakes you make now count. Not for everything, and not forever. But they do matter, and they shape you. If you take nothing else from what I’ve been through, at least remember this: make your choices well. Because you’ll always be accountable for them. That’s what being an adult is all about.
