how to: be alive

via

i. do something out of your comfort zone-- something that nobody in their right mind would do. try something local, an activity, a game, heck: try a sport you've always been hesitant to try. take the first step! (for me, i've been waiting to go paintball-ing for quite some time now, and hopefully that happens soon).

ii. stand with your back straight and walk your best. pretend your favorite song is playing in the background as you strut down your school hallways. make people bow down.

iii. wear something that makes you feel special and appreciated, and never forget your smile at home. when people look at you, they should feel immediately inclined to do the same. (in short, try to slap a genuine smile onto everyone you see).

iv. have a conversation with a stranger. and not just a superficial conversation. really get to know them. after you've chatted for at least fifteen minutes, you should see them differently than you did a quarter of an hour ago.

v. act on instinct for an hour. don't let anything hold you back. do something crazy.

(and yes, i'm an enfp).

  4. Walk tall, smile all the time, act on instinct, make people bow down, talk to strangers... that's definitely how you live life. All this overthinking needs to be saved for after. Sometimes being alive is hard work.
