Writing New Year's resolutions

take photos of everything beautiful. accept that sometimes the most beautiful thing is yourself. embrace that. hang out with hachii more. he misses you when you're gone. be gracious. be humble. be patient. be thankful. be kind. stop apologising so much. unless you've actually done something wrong. then apologise sincerely & move on. we all make mistakes. read. read. read. read. read. read. read. read. read. write more. write about everything. remember that it's not a crime to not know it all. keep learning. learn to unapologetically say no to others. learn to unapologetically say yes to yourself. tell more stories. go for long walks. trust yourself above all else. don't blame yourself for your mental illness. it is not your fault. you are strong despite & because of it. give yourself the benefit of the doubt. give other people the benefit of the doubt. go to sleep earlier. have slower mornings. if you're sad, say it. if you're anxious, say it. if you're angry, say it. write copious amounts of poetry. be generous with your poetry. give it away. there is always more to write. it is not finite. keep pouring love into half mystic & six impossible things. go out of your way to make other people feel good. but not at the expense of your own well-being! remember that living is an art. act accordingly. acknowledge that you are doing the best you can. try to be happy.
