The Horrible Thing That Happens

If you’re lucky, the horrible thing that happens gives you some distance from the world and it lets you to look at it in a way no one else does.

 If you’re lucky, the horrible thing that happens makes you move closer to everyone around you because you understand how bad the horrible thing can be, and you know there's a chance someone else might have felt something as horrible as you have.

So you are not careless with others.

You try and make sure the horrible thing don’t happen to them. 

Because you’re the lucky one.

The Secrets Hidden In Stone

Here is the most beautiful thing in the world: There are people doing great things that they don't know are great yet.

They sit in their bedrooms, not knowing they are writing the most beautiful song you will ever hear. They go to their jobs, hiding great novels somewhere in the depths of their computers. They paint, not knowing how important their picture will be.

They do all this with no promise of any reward or any recognition, and so there are truly great, secret things, everywhere. Waiting to explode.

It is the most beautiful thing in the world.

The Scars Light Leaves

Don't be me. 

I'm already me. 

Be you.

I've had to be me my entire life to write what I write.

You've got an entire lifetime to work out what you will do, with being you.
