Never for one second think that you are the only one who feels the way you do.
Believe in the beauty of your imagination. It’s a gift, not a curse, not a waste of time.
Accept your humanity and your spirituality and don’t be ashamed of either.
Don’t worry about making people uncomfortable.
Indulge yourself in your music, your books, all the things that inspire you then go share all those good feelings.
Decide you are beautiful, without a mirror, without an appraisal, without validation.
Say what everyone is thinking but is afraid to say.
Say what you know everyone needs to hear to feel hope, to feel connected.
Smile mischievously when people call you weird. Weird is your escape from sameness and monotony.
Share your mistakes and what you’ve learned. Help others find meaning.
Show what makes you different. Show what turns you on.
Admit you are afraid.
Cultivate an idea and act on it. Put out what you desire to take in.
Keep going even when the going is slow and uncertain.
Make your dream your prayer and your service.
Don’t wait for recognition. Let it find you working.
Romanticize authenticity instead of perfection.
