stuff you can do:

https://www.findmywhy.com/ <– do this to find out more about yourself and your purpose…

spread the word.

start a conversation about something deep – talk with people, not to people. make them feel comfortable about thinking beyond the surface.

read some plato. (kidding. kind of…)

read a book.

get off your phone.

turn off your social media notifications. (small things have big impacts.)

eat healthier.

immerse yourself in nature and experience the wilderness. learn to love and crave being in nature.

smile at people. smile at yourself. try a few to begin with. it’ll become easy to make that everyone.

treat people well. you never know what they’re going through, or how they’re feeling – even if what they’re feeling might not be a “big deal” to you, we all deal with things differently.

don’t judge. listen and love. it doesn’t hurt you to listen.

write stuff down – your thoughts, your strengths, your weaknesses, your aspirations and cravings, your friends, your goals, your dreams, what you like and dislike, what tv shows you’re watching, what songs are in your favourite playlists.

buy a plant for your room.

read more poetry.

teach yourself how to play the guitar. it’s not that hard – i promise.

finally, love. love deeply, broadly, widely. love people you would ordinarily hate. we all have flaws, differences, insecurities. love each other for the good parts, not the bad. put jealousy and envy aside and i promise – you will find life to be so much more fulfilling.
