i wasn’t meant for a cube, for a 9-5 and a “routine” life. and neither were you. you, beautiful, were put here to be magnificent. and yet they cage your spirit with empty promises of wealth and comfort. they bait your dreams with money, constantly making you teeter between being happy doing what you love to do and unhappy with what you need to do. i am here to tell you that you don’t owe anyone anything. you slave away and weaken your body for someone elses goal instead of taking time off for self reflection and your own desires. you let money seize your brain and take hold of everything; all for 40 hours in a miserable, claustrophobic office that you won’t even remember when you re-count your blessings. but i understand that this is what it is. in this one-sided life, money and fruitless jobs are labeled priorities. i understand that you are slaving, unhappy now, to afford your dreams later….but what if there is no later? what if there is only now? if anything, at the end of the day, make sure you let the grass caress you, the sun intimately kiss your skin and the clouds part above you. count those stars and smile at the moon.

This may be the only freedom you get for years to come.
