Especially those of you who are not yet 30
Life is everything. Death is nothing.
Whatever you feel, think, smell, see, hear, or taste is life. It is your consummate experience. Life never gets better or worse than it is right now.
We are organisms of the present.
If you survived that which you thought was unbearable, you made it through the horror. If you were not equipped to survive that horror, you are not reading this
Life is hard, but it is rewarding.
Pain can be the sweetest taste of life. If you feel pain, it means that you have survived an unimaginable horror.
Relish your victory.
If you are angry at someone, something, or at the somehow of your existence, never forget that it is better to be pissed off than pissed on.
The writer, poets, and artists among you already realize that you have a story to tell.
