I hope you fall in love with being alive.
I hope you read books and understand that life is so much more than expecting an apologetic text from that person you won’t remember in a couple of years.
I hope you feel pursued.
I hope you have the best of friends.
And I even hope you get in trouble together.
I hope you make fun memories and take too many pictures and scream at the top of your lungs on roller coasters.
I hope you swim in the depths of the oceans.
And I hope you feel the dirt underneath your fingernails when you climb mountains.
I hope you know the joys of genuine laughter.
I hope you know the difference between wisdom and test scores.
I hope you understand that you can be anything you want to be.
I hope you also understand you have to work hard to get it.
I hope you stay consistent with your approach towards life.
I hope you do more than sit around and complain about the things that could change.
Because I hope you are the CHANGE.
I hope you journal and write every thought down.
I hope you learn how to skate.
I hope you eat your fruits and vegetables.
I hope you treat your body well.
I hope you respect your reputation.
I hope you build your IDENTITY.
But I also hope you have fun.
In fact, I hope you have unapologetic shameless kinda fun without hurting others.
Because I hope you fall in LOVE with being alive.
(Not my words).
