“I’m so proud of you just for sticking around. I know this world can be such a cruel place sometimes; that’s why you’re so courageous simply by waking up each day and braving what’s ahead. Know that your best moments are still waiting for you down the line and there are so many people who are glad that you are here. The world can be messy but it is wonderful most of the time. It’s wonderful because there are still so many places to be, movies to see, books to read, poetry to experience, songs to hear, sunrises to witness, moonrises and sunsets to fall in love under, there are still so many words to say, people to love, people to meet, lessons to learn, art to appreciate, foods to savor, adventures to create and wild nights to remember, there’s still, for us, a creating of a life to never forget. The Sun and the Moon are simply too beautiful to miss, so hang around, be here, please stay, the world is so glad you exist.”
