“Please Don’t.”

“It’s better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.”

Alan Watts

Imagine waking up one day when you’re 70 – and realizing that you never went swimming with your friends on a warm summer night because your thighs jiggle. Or you didn’t write that book or create some art because you were strung up on perfectionism – or you were too busy putting other people’s dreams ahead of your own.

Imagine waking up one day when you’re 80 – and realizing that you’ve never lived a life of silliness and passion and adventure because you were too busy doing all the things you thought you needed to do rather than all the things you actually wanted to do.

Imagine waking up one day when you’re 90 – and realizing that you’re about to die, yet you’ve never ever even truly lived.

Please don’t let this happen. You’ll break your own heart.
