The Monsters Are My Friends

I want someone to lean across one day and say, don’t you hate it when everything’s really beautiful and it hurts at the same time, so I can say, yes, I hate it. Then me and them belong to a club, and we are never, ever alone again.

There are clubs, everywhere, that I don’t belong to.

The Millions Ways To Fail

Here's how you fail: You fail with your heart on your sleeve.

You fail like you mean it with every part of you.

You fail attempting the impossible and the ridiculous.

You fail in front of others and you fail and they laugh at you and you fail and you feel nothing and regret less.

You fail sincerely and earnestly and you risk everything at every opportunity.

This is how you fail: You fail beautifully. You fail with grace.

The Saying Of When


When you love like the last good thing.

When you love and forget every important thing you were going to say.

When you love and forget everything.

The Delusion You Suffer Under

Nowhere on your body and nowhere on the Earth is it written: You were made to suffer.

The Goodness Of Knowing

You know we are only as good as the time and the love we pour into each other. Pour yourselves into each other.

Here Is A Short Letter To You

Dear You,

My humblest apologies for not writing in forever. It might not have actually been forever but it certainly feels that way.

I have been juggling so many different things, it's been hard to find myself and hence, you.

I'll be explaining myself in full at The Book Lounge in Cape Town on the 23 of June, I will do my best to periscope the event so even if you're not in Cape Town, you can still watch and listen.



Sign up for the event, and to get reminded, on Facebook by clicking here.

Arianna Huffington quoted I Wrote This For You in her New York Times #1 bestseller, Thrive, and she was kind enough to invite me to blog for The Huffington Post - here's a link to what I've already put up there and I've also added a link on the right of the page.

 I've been putting the finishing touches to How To Be Happy, my new book, which is not a self-help book, and you can win a copy of it by clicking here.

Sometimes I do things in the morning and they come to life in the afternoon and they get published in the evening. I'm investing a lot of my creative energy right now into projects that require a more longterm approach, I believe these will be great, wonderful, amazing things but it also means you might not see me as much.

Please be patient. Everything is worth it in the end.

Sincerely,

Me

The Rule

Here's what you don't say, "I sometimes wonder if the universe is a movie and if it's really all about me."

You don't say, "I am still competing with everyone I competed with as a child."

Or, "I fall in love a little with everything."

You never say, "I think everyone else knows something that I don't."

Or, "I can be distracted when you're not here, but not happy."

And don't ever say, "I just want you to cry like I cried."

You never say the most important things. That's the rule.
