If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
randomly compliment people because sometimes that will be the only kind words they will hear that day
what would you do if you knew you were going to die? quit school? paint until your fingers go numb? travel the world and deeply inhale every breath? hug trees and whisper sweet things into the bark? cut your hair? scream at that person who has always wound you up? listen to every song you love and dance to them naked in the rain? kiss the person you love?
well guess what, you are going to die. none of us can ever truly know exactly when, maybe tomorrow, 567 days from now, or maybe you’ll make it to age 92. but that doesn’t matter. You should be Living. it is so much easier in theory than practice, but start with the little things and work your way to true happiness.
i’m not saying don’t write that paper thats due tomorrow because you could drop dead at any time, i’m saying enjoy it. life is what you make of it, and I’m fully understanding that now.
