French press your coffee on the roof drink it and tell a story about every car that goes by
Cry when the hero dies
Weep when your friends find truth capital “T”
You know, I like to talk in a British accent about a lonely bird
Or I like ta yell and wonda where da hell my shipment is vinny?
Make a stupid music video with your friends and pray that something goes wrong,
and that you laugh so very long
Pray for rain and when it comes at sunset, when the world is turned to gold,
play in it till you are soaked to thedry bone.
When your song comes on scream every word like it’s alive
Ask her out, right now, if you can see her ask her out, right now. I’ll wait.
Speak like a hoodrat who jusswanna do hoodratthangs wit dey friends
Get amber sap all over your hands because you FINALLY climbed that tree
you’ve passed by everyday for a year
Next time you see deer by the roadside, stop your car, turn it off,
and get so close to that deer you can hear it breathing.
Take your shoes off and go longboarding
Take your shoes off and stand in the snow
Take your shoes off and chase fire flies in the
dense warmth of an Oklahoma night
Take. Off. Your. Shoes.
Build a rope swing that crosses the expanse of every star and every
galaxy that ever existed, all flowing beneath you as you
soar through imaginations air
Say whatever it is you need to say and if you don’t have the courage
to say it now, practice saying it when the first spring thunderstorms
roll in. go out in the downpour and scream at father thunder till
you are a lion
Let the rain cleanse you
Get a sunburn
Slide into her DMs and start that relationship you’ve been dreaming about since you were little. Keep sliding until you make it. Trust me.
Cause we aren’t quitters
Watch the sunset in your underwear
Pretend to be a caterpillar
Be. Weird. Be honest.
Sell your soul for nothing
Cause you see, it’s already been bought for an unattainable cost
Underneath two splintered trees held together by a man
There is blood, there is blood covering the sand
And that, that is good news!
Get in a fight, let the bones in your face meet the bones of
Your brothers hand
Leave early Friday morning and drive to Galveston, sleep on the beach for two nights,
And comeback Sunday with that sunburn we talked about
Drink wine lay in the grass listen to Coldplay and watch the stars talk to eachother
Be. Weird. Fall in love, that’s weird.
Get hurt, feel your broken bleeding heart, and know, how lucky it is
God chose you to be alive. Thank God you have a heart that
Can not only break, but be mended as well
Send a girl some flowers. Send a girl some flowers that you’ve been in love with all along. Send her as many as you can buy. Show up after a fight with the Pink Roses she loves. And if she’s still mad, send her more.
If that, decision you’re making, is the safe bet, the rational thing to do, don’t do it.
Take a risk, choose the crazy
If that’s the girl, I mean the girl, kiss her. And if it’s not the girl, kiss her,
and if it’s not the girl but you’re trying to convince her to be, kiss her
and if that’s the boy, push his face away when he tries!
Pass out bread to the homeless, and when you’ve done that give them some skittles
And when you’ve done that give them the clothes off your back
Fall in love with an idea let that idea take hold, get hurt by that idea, and
promise yourself you’ll do better next time
Don’t be afraid to be weird. Be bold. Be adventurous. Be out of your comfort zone
Be alive. Be strange. Get off the couch and into the air. Be you. I love you. Be weird.
