As you continue to travel the road of life, do your best to avoid letting anyone or anything get in the way of your JOY. Live a life that sizzles and pops and makes you laugh out loud every day. Because you don’t want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realise that your life is a collection of meetings and “somedays” and errands and receipts and empty promises.
Go ahead and sing out loud in the car with the windows down, dance in your living room, stay up late laughing, paint your walls any colour you want, and enjoy that expensive bottle of wine you have been saving and bake chocolate cakes. Yes, and go ahead and sleep in on clean white sheets, and throw parties, and paint, and write poetry, and read books so good they make you lose track of time.
The older we grow, the quieter we become and the less pointless drama and chaos we engage in. Life humbles us gradually as we age. We realise how much nonsense we’ve wasted time on. Truth be told, the afternoon always understands what the morning never even suspected.
