6.5 minutes of wisdom

I have 6.5 minutes to write something profound to you. Something to encourage you. Something to help you realize that there is more to life than what we have made it out to be. So here goes:

1. Make room in your schedule to just be alone with no plan. The most amazing things come from time that begs you to use it however you want.

2. There are people around you every day that need what you have. Don't hold back. Share your heart, your gifts, and your time with people.

3. Find a style of fashion, writing, reading, creating, whatever suits you, that, well, suits you! Who cares if other people think it's ridiculous. They don't have to live your life.

4. Spend more time with the children in your life than adults. Children have the best perspective on life because the world hasn't made them skeptical and calloused yet.

5. Some nights it's okay to go to bed early and some nights it's better to stay out until the crack of dawn. Just choose wisely so you don't waste your late nights with nothing to show for them.

6. You are enough. Don't let anyone lead you to believe otherwise.

7. Sometimes the best way to get over something is to knock it down and jump on it a few times! {Note: this does not refer to people!}

There you have it! Seven things that I came up with in less than 7 minutes! Time to go!
Enjoy today while it lasts!

    1. It was almost time for me to leave.

    2. Haha. I thought there was significance in 6.5, but quitting time works, too.

    3. Sorry to disappoint! I'm not that deep I guess. I was that girl in my English Lit classes that when everyone was coming up with hidden meanings and deep conspiracies I thought "Maybe they didn't mean anything by that, maybe it's just meant to mean exactly what it says!" I'm apparently pretty black and white!

    4. Again, another reason why we are friends. I think I am probably just too lazy to dig deeper.
