I know you get really tired sometimes. Of all the unexpected destinations that you end up on as you follow your path.You question yourself as you look up at the sky. Or across the ocean. Wherever you are.
Sensing the limitlessness of it all. Realizing that you may never know everything, no matter how hard you try.
Now I really can’t give you any advice on how to make that possible – after all, it is my essence. My secret formula. It’s what makes me so special.
All I can say is be grateful. For the ones you meet as you discover incredible things.
Actually, the ones who stand by you when you fall and don’t think you have what it takes to get back up and move on.
Make a conscious effort. Stay in touch. Don’t let time get into the way of things.
Because the truth is that you will never have enough of it.
Be wise. Realize that sometimes what you’re searching for is really something that has always been there. Right in front of you, with you all this while.
Keep your mind open. Be humble.
No matter how successful you become.
Because giant houses and cars are pretty amazing.
And so are all the other fancy things that I see everyone wishing for so often.
I see them do some crazy things, like read horoscopes.
Or believe in fortune cookies.
But trust me, at the end of the day,
Its all about what you’re coming home to.
That someone who waits for you to knock on the door.
The neighbor who smiles at you every morning.
Your favorite spot, where you like to escape to sometimes.
Happiness. The simplest kind.
The joy of eating a bowl of popcorn as you binge-watch your favorite TV show.
Putting on that one song that you’ve listened to too many times and singing.
Dancing in the shower.
Cooking. Reading a good book.
Whatever makes you feel like all the effort is worth it.
I know. I know.
You’ve heard this so many times.
But I thought it might be just what you needed to hear.
At this moment. As you sit and wonder.
Right before you sleep.
And make new promises to yourself about tomorrow.
Be fierce. Be unforgettable.
Be the kind of person that I can talk about for eternity.
I believe in you.
