Up where the air is rare and the view is fair

1. Know that you are still blooming, and this is okay.

2. Write handwritten love notes to the parts of yourself you hate.

3. Find the comfort in holding your own hand.

4. Remember, even clouds cry sometimes.

5. Date yourself. Get to know yourself again.

6. Learn how to be alone without feeling lonely.

7. Do something that scares you every day, no matter how small. Watch your life change.

8. Stop wishing for a vacation and make your life into something you don’t wish to escape from.

9. Recognize that the best artists color outside the lines. You have the same freedom in your life. Break conventions.

10. Go to the florist on the corner and buy yourself some flowers. Spoil yourself. You deserve it.

11. Throw out your premeditated list of qualities for your perfect mate. That special person is not a recipe or equation. Humans are more than that.

12. Share your testimony. Our story is meant to be heard. Find your voice.

13. Wish to be more like rain than snow. Snow is frigid and hardens. Rain is vulnerable and soft.

14. Look at your veins. They are roots, and your limbs are branches. Your body is a strong tree. Don’t you dare cut it down.

15. Strive to have the humility as the sun. It shines brilliantly every day without needing anyone to notice.

16. Flip through old photos and reminisce about the past, but do not live there. Nothing new happens there.

17. Dust off the fingerprints of any past lover left on your skin. You belong only to yourself.

18. Become the person you’d like to fall in love with.

19. Loving yourself again will be like putting on eyeglasses. The blur will fade and you will see yourself for what you truly are: beautiful.

"13 things my uncle told me before he died:
not everyone has the blessing to understand sadness
when waiting at the bus stop, it’s okay to smoke cigarettes
never touch anyone else’s clothes at the laundromat
it’s okay to miss the people who were bullets to you
when your grandmother asks you how you are, be honest
never be afraid to say “no” even after you’ve said “yes”
if someone tells you graffiti isn’t art, prove them wrong
remember people by their eye color not their clothes
you’re allowed to like dark chocolate with tangerines
don’t lie that you don’t have a lighter when you really do
turn your phone off every once in a while and find the moon
if you want a tattoo, don’t let anyone tell you not to get it
if you ever find yourself at a graveyard, read the names"

The Swing at the End of the World
There’s a swing on the edge of a cliff in Ecuador. It has no safety measures and is called the ‘Swing at the End of the World’.

"'It's just the satisfaction of the crowd cheering. Just performance.'
At least that’s what I thought before.
Before I got the crowd, before the cheering,
Before the performance.
Before I made myself sick with worry, always trying to impress.
Before smiles, and glitter and lipstick.
Before hiding bruises and blood and pain.
Before I realized it wasn’t about the crowd, or the performance
It’s about me."

'The sea's only gifts are harsh blows, and occasionally the chance to feel strong. Now I don't know much about the sea, but I do know that that's the way it is here. And I also know how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong but to feel strong. To measure yourself at least once. To find yourself at least once in the most ancient of human conditions. Facing the blind death stone alone, with nothing to help you but your hands and your own head.'

made for slipping through defenses to poke holes in your skin,

only to pull away and leave you bleeding.

made for battle,

meeting you hit for hit,

blocking and ducking.

light on their feet.

I think you were made like this,

born onto a battlefield,

and now you bring the battlefield with you wherever you go.

i don’t want to fight you.
