u know someone is having a rough day when their favorite song plays and they don’t sing along

No one will understand how much this just broke my heart.

"1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

3. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

4. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

5. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

6. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

7. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

8. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

9. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

10. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

11. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

13. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

14. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

15. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you."

John Mayer, Before performing Edge of Desire, Irvine, CA 2010:

"Look, on the other end of perfectly lonely, there is a perfectly good reason to want somebody back. And if deep inside you want somebody back, like in your heart you want somebody back, but in your brain or your ego worrying about what your friends are gonna say, you say ‘Nah, I can’t do it, can’t do it. They’re right, I’ll just go right back.’

But then you’re still just laying there aren’t you? You’re still just laying there with your phone on your chest. Staring at it, willing for it to go ‘Drrrrr drrrrrr’. That slight connected motion of being wanted. Just a slight stirring like an insect. Sometimes when you press the button to see who it is, it’s who you want to see. Sometimes it’s not who you want to see and your heart breaks a little bit more. But then it’s who you want to see, and they write what you want to read. And it says ‘You up? You awake?’ And this begins the existential crisis, the splitting down the middle of wanting to say ‘Yes, I’m up, come over. Tonight, I don’t have the power to fight you, so just come over and do that thing that you do that I’ll hate tomorrow for having said yes to. But tonight, do it.’ Cause life is just too short to keep playing the game. Cause if you really want somebody, you’ll figure it out later.

I’m telling you, it’s okay. It’s okay to go over and give your heart to someone you already gave your heart to. Because what sucks the most is living in a prison in your own bed, in your own mind, and in your own life. I’m telling you it’s okay until the moment you don’t want to do it anymore. Go get it done, it’s okay. You understand what I’m saying? I promise you I’m not leading you astray. I promise.

Because one day you won’t want to, and that’s how you know when you’re ready to move on, but until that moment… Don’t say a word, just say ‘Come over here. Because words was what got us dead in the first place. So we just won’t use words anymore. Just shut up, just shut up. Just come here, come here. Just don’t say a word. Come with me. Just lead them by the hand. Just don’t say anything, because when you say something is when you hit my trigger, so don’t hit that trigger. You know I love you, you know I hate the English language with you, so let’s do it without the English language. Don’t say a word. I would’ve been much better off in my life if I never said a word, so I’m not gonna say anymore words. I’m just gonna say ‘Don’t say a word’.”


Words can’t express how much I relate to this right now.
