I've been wanting to tell you...
I've been wanting to tell you that it's okay to feel.
To be the one who laughs too loud at the funny parts. And is the first one to cry. Always.
It's also okay that you can get overwhelmed by just how much you feel. To wonder jeez, why can't I turn these feelings off for once? And to need to take a break from it all sometimes.
Because when you notice and create and experience so much, you can’t be 100% on. You can’t keep giving. You have to give yourself room.
Because you feel. Because, to you, those feelings and everything connected to them - things, people, relationships - they're all essential and genuine and so true. And heart-breakingly real.
That’s how you show up in your life and that’s who you are.
I've been wanting to tell you that, yes, sometimes it can be burdensome to feel so much and to fall so hard and to want so badly.
But it's also the most brave, vulnerable, and honest way to live.
Don't ever change. In fact, give us more. Let it flow.
When you find yourself near tears, remember that it's not a bad thing. It’s a beautiful thing.
