1. Every time I get a text message, my heart beats a little faster because it might be from you. Or maybe that’s some weird medical condition? Hmm.

2. What would the world do if banana bread had never been invented? What would people do with all of their overripe bananas?!

3. Your goal shouldn’t be to save the world, just to help make it a little bit better. If we all do small things, big things will happen.

4. Don’t let people walk away –¬†literally or figuratively or both – if you still have something to say to them! It sucks, and it’s going to suck more later, thinking back on it. Be strong in the moment and say it!

5. They probably love you back.

6. If you have a positive attitude about it, it’s more likely to happen.

7. Horoscopes may or may not be true, but they’re fun to read! Right? Leo and Cancer are made for each other this month! How cool is that?

8. If you’re doing something for the wrong reasons, other people will know that something’s not quite right.

9. Stop assuming that people who walk around looking unhappy are unhappy! Maybe that’s just the way their face is – it’s not your job to tell complete strangers to cheer up! “Smile!”¬†Stop doing that! You’re just making them even more pissed, or, if they were perfectly OK to begin with, now you’ve went and made them angry!

10. If you’re unhappy with your life, maybe you just need to buy more pillows for your bed. Hey, it could work.

I went to bed at 1AM this morning. It was a strange night of me sleeping and then waking up every hour or so to go pee. I think I ate too much watermelon.

Twice when I awoke, thoughts popped into my head. This was strange because usually when I wake up it’s more like me struggling out of bed, groggy, grumpy, and tired. These little thoughts were very clear, very simple. I was surprised by their honesty and their simplicity.

My first thought was this:

“There are so many amazing, creative people here in this world and it doesn’t seem to support them very much. It could be a much better place.”

That was at 4AM. Then I went back to sleep.

A few hours later, I awoke, and thought,

“I could go biking today. I can fit my bike in the back of my truck now. I could go to the park and go biking. It would be good exercise. Maybe my little brother will come. I should go biking.”

Then, I went back to sleep. It is a wonderful thing to have the freedom to wake up, think little, important thoughts, and then dive deep down into your pillows once more.
