Be You.


It's ok to hurt.

For a while.

As long as you need. 


Doesn't mean you're weak.

It means your strength is incomprehensible to the ill-informed

Doesn't mean you're dumb,

or foolish

or absent-minded.

It means you value your heart,

your courage,

and your time


Know this

If your time is spent with loved ones,

(no matter how imperfect they may be)

there is no greener grass on the other side


As the saying goes; if you fall down seven times, you get up eight. 

because along this amazing, beautiful, brainless, empathetic, tragic journey

We all hurt

In every phase of our lives 


And I hope you can learn to believe

that the meaning behind that phrase

Is not resilience, or endurance, or tolerance

It's fucking transformation

It's ascension! 


If the world around you burns to ashes

Build a better, more modern world with titanium skeleton

For whom you love.

And you know it.

And they know it.

The reality of your capability to build your best world

is astounding in-and-of itself


and nobody can take that away from you

be amazing

be weird

simply, be you
