stay loose. learn to watch snails. plant impossible gardens. invite someone dangerous to tea. make little signs that say Yes! and post them all over your house. make friends with freedom & uncertainty. look forward to dreams. cry during movies. swing as high as you can on a swingset by moonlight. cultivate moods. refuse to "be responsible". do it for love. take lots of naps. give money away. do it now. the money will follow. believe in magic. laugh a lot. celebrate every gorgeous moment. take moonbaths. have wild imaginings and transformative dreams. practice breathing. draw on the walls. read every day. imagine yourself magic. laugh with children. listen to old people. open up. dive in. be free. bless yourself. drive away fear. play with everything. entertain your inner child. find your innocence. build a fort with blankets. get wet. hug trees. write love letters.
I hope life brings you much success. I wish you a very happy day.
