I don’t want anything from you, at all. I just want to be the person you choose to sit next to in a room full with all the people you have known.
Just choose life. Just choose the people around the table instead of always choosing the ones who are miles away waiting on you to double tap their photos. They’ll be there when you turn back to the screen.
Choose who you have right here, right here. It’s precious. It’s urgent. When they ask you to go get margaritas after dinner, go without reserve. You can buy groceries the next day. Choose long drives. Choose screaming Taylor Swift at the top of your lungs. Choose saying “yes” to dates, even if you don’t know if they’re “the one.” I guess I just want to beg you to let people in. Welcome them in. Just let people hold your hands and buy you dinner. Let them compliment your smile. Let yourself feel beautiful for five minutes.
Choose dishes left in the sink for nights beneath the stars. Choose random chats in Target with the cashier. Choose using people’s names more often than you don’t. Choose slow dancing in the kitchen.http://hannahbrencher.com/2014/08/12/a-life-is-so-fragile-and-quick-kind-of-letter/
If we are not fully ourselves, truly in the present moment, we miss everything.Thích Nhất Hạnh
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
