a quote by Chris Cahill

Since you asked, I’d say with a couple hundred words on paper, written by hand.
I recommend starting your day off with a big love letter to yourself. Tell your heart you’re listening and that she is welcome.
Tell your inner child that it’s okay to be here and be loud and be herself.
Tell your current self how brave you are and how happy you are to see yourself showing up in writing, creating a legacy, keeping a promise to exist.
Feel free to draw hearts all over everything. There is no such thing as too much love, only spaces too afraid to hold it. Here, in the beauty of this moment, alone, quiet, dedicated to discovery, you will find your voice. It may change from line to line but life is full of surprises. Don’t be surprised if you surprise yourself.

You don’t have to do any of this if you don’t want to. It’s all up to you to decide what you need. It always is.

a quote by Chris Cahill

I recommend starting your day off
with gratitude
and ending it with as much

Who am I to tell you
it’s not like I have things
filed and sorted and folded

In a time where we call out
all the injustice every injustice
and I don’t begrudge that

how do we
treat ourselves at the end of the day
when our bones ache and

we hunger for tenderness?
How do we treat ourselves when we
fuck up and don’t want to fall?
