Write a story about yourself, about your life.
What kind of things do you want to say?
How many monsters will you encounter along the way?
How many heroes?
Write out all of those crazy thoughts,
the ones that plague your mind,
and keep you from sleeping.
“The only constant in the entire universe is change.”
This is known.
“People who claim to have no regrets
are fucking delusional.”
This is also known.
“You really should have kissed her,
you really should have told her how you felt.”
“You should have been less afraid,
and cared less about how other people thought of you.”
“You should have smiled more,
and taken more vacations.”
“You should have screamed more, and sang more. Felt more deeply,
and cried so much more. You should have had more sex.”
“You should have smoked less,
and done fewer drugs.”
“You shouldn’t have wasted so much time
trying to do what was expected of you.”
The only constant thing in this universe is change,
and I have so many regrets,
but I am trying to change that.
So, sit down. Grab a pen and some paper.
Write the story of your life.
You have plenty of time.
Write it down, and believe it.
Every. Single. Word.
