Then set a timer for fifteen minutes, but read this before you start.
The world has been trying to tame you, and you’ve been trying to comply.
But there’s a beast in your heart and a fire in your brain, and all these failed attempts at normalcy are killing you.
You don’t want to get things buttoned down. You want to change things up.
You don’t want to live your life in rows and columns and neatly sorted file folders. They can make you nice and tidy when they bury you.
Life is filled with chaos and so are you, so don’t worry about not belonging here.
You’re a card carrying member of the animal kingdom and you’re tired of stifling your roar.
Fit in? You’d rather get out.
Domesticated? You’d rather be investigated.
Productive? Depends. What are they asking you to produce?
You don’t mind hard work; you’re just want to work for something more.
So today, be honest about it. No, that alone won’t change everything, but it could set you on a path that will. Sometimes you have to say it out loud and write it down proud before you ever take it serious.
Grab whatever you’ve chosen to write with and, when I say go, start the clock.
Then for fifteen minutes forget about the junk in your head and the crap in your life and let the good stuff flow. Dreams, desires, longings, and anything you can pour from your bucket list. Go crazy. Don’t censor. Enjoy fifteen minutes of madness.
Then, when the timer goes off, read what you wrote.
Repeat as often as necessary.
P.S. If nothing you read above resonated with you, feel free to do it anyway.
