Are you ready?

Come, lets fall in love with ourselves before we fall in love with anybody else.  Come lets help each other discover what we don’t see in us; what we refuse to see in ourselves.Lets claim ourselves as our own before we can give any part of us to anybody. Come lets see what we can do without all of our insecurities holding us from our sleeves, nagging at our shoulders and constantly whispering into our ears everything that we hate about ourselves. Come lets see what we do when we stay awake at 3 am and count how many stars there are and how many we can call our own. Come, lets grow a plant and see what life looks like when it isn’t ours. Come lets play strings on a guitar and sing at our loudest and discover what lyrics make most sense. Come, lets sleep in bed and whisper things that we are too afraid to say in the light of day. Let’s hold hands and fall asleep in the comfort of the knowledge that there is someone to wake up to.

And when one night, we are feeling mighty courageous, lets leave this town. Lets leave notes on the fridge and escape for a bit. Let’s leave now before we never can, before there is so much more here than there. Come, lets abandon all the fears and doubts that are constantly holding us back and lets jump a little. Lets embrace the weird and the insane and lets see where this takes us. Lets wake up without clocks and calendars and figure out how to get to a destination without google maps. Lets live off of scraps and sleep in cars and discover life without these retched devices that we cling on to. 

Moreover, lets decide who we want to be. Lets shed away everything we aren’t proud of and everything we said we wouldn’t become. Let’s drop that dead weight and leap ahead.
