1. Cut your hair every now and then. Fresh starts are always nicer than you think. Who needs split ends anyways. 2. Pick a song you really like. Listen to that song a lot. And I mean a lot. Dance around your room naked to that song, beat the song lifeless till it annoys the hell out of you. Then pick a new song and go through the same process. We all need to really hear music, we need to understand what the song we are listening to is really about. 3. Paint your toes black, make it as perfect as possible. Then, scratch it off. Remember nothing is permanent. 4. Go on a run with your dog. Try to race him and beat him. Realize you can out run many things. Then go back and pet your dog, realize that some things you need to go back for.
5. Decorate a plain backpack. Glue on sparkles, glitter, diamonds, newspaper and magazine clippings, lace & ribbon, anything else that may fancy you. Remember, you don't have to be the same person you were a minute ago. 6. Buy some pretty lights and string them up in your room. Turn off all the lights except for one when you go to bed. Remember it isn't always dark and lonely. Change your perspective. 7. Lay outside one night. Breathe in, breathe out. Accept that you are only one person and cannot do everything at one time. You can take your time. The creator of the stars you're looking up at did not do it all in one day. Pace yourself. 8. Get up every morning and stand in front of the mirror. Naked, fully clothed, backwards, upside down, who cares how, just do it. Observe yourself. Notice the wrinkles under your eyes from laughing a lot. Count your freckles. Admire your ass. Then name 3 things you love about yourself. You need to love yourself.
“There are people who you will love until the end. Certain feelings are much too powerful to perish and quietly survive on in the heart for a life. No matter how much we change or drift apart, in some small way, you will always be mine, and I will always be yours.”
“It's supposed to be just a tiny crush. You weren't supposed to be lingering in my head all day. I wasn't supposed to always search the crowd for you. It was supposed to be just a harmless little thing, but it's not. You are constantly blowing my mind. I know you're not flirting, but oh god, your words are piercing the depths of my soul. And I can't believe how ridiculously atttactive you are in white. And that rare smile, that smile must be killing hearts everywhere. Even your walk mesmerizes me. I sometimes catch myself staring at you for a little too long, I can't help it. You are a mystery, and I want to know you. I know you're probably already in love with someone else and that i'm walking willingly into an obvious disaster, but I don't care. My heart already chose you, I am heading to its wishes.”
“Thank you guys so much. In 2014, this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically, 100% honest with all of you. I think it's safe to say that most of you know a lot of my life whether I like it or not, and I had to stop. 'Cause I had everything, and I was absolutely broken inside, and I kept it all together enough where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. I don't wanna see your bodies on Instagram. I wanna see what's in your heart.I'm not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore. All that I can say from the bottom of my heart is I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every single day, with people that I love. And I have to say thank you so much to my fans because you guys are so damn loyal, and I don't know what I did to deserve you.
Butif you are broken,
you do not have to stay broken.
And if that's anything, whether you respect me or not, that's one thing you should know about me, is I care about people. And thank you so much for this, this is for you.”
