Second: Take a picture of your face and remember that in ten years time you'll be amazed at how gorgeous you were. Be amazed now.
Third: Find someplace to live.
Make sure it has the ability to let light fall across the room in such a way that every so often, you’ll stop and mouth the words, “ah, sunlight.”
Don’t let the books get dusty. Open them and re-read your favorite sentences.
Fourth: Fall in love.
Touch; more often than you think. Have a child if you want one. If you don’t—don’t.
Let your child out into the world, discovering for themselves just how magical it is.
Or it isn’t. It’s theirs to decide.
Fifth: Get a job.
Remember this job is not who you are.
Sixth: Do yoga.
Let your body discover what it’s like to move without your brain holding its hand.
Tell your brain to take a hike. Let your body believe fully in its own powers.
Let every person you’ve stored inside your muscles out to breathe now and again.
Seventh: Do things that make you feel good.
Let your joy be contagious and spread through your home, your job, your children.
Let it spread through the world like a virus, so that when you forget it, every so often you’ll catch it from someone else.
