how to fall in love (with yourself)

one:
sit very, very still

two:
check to see if your music can go any louder

three:
drink water – more than you usually do. laugh at how frequently you have to run to the bathroom.

four:
spend too much much time snuggled under your covers asking questions to your pillows

five:
walk two miles to buy yourself flowers on a sunday right before the shop closes even though you have a car and could have made it there in five minutes.

six:
acknowledge the moments and pieces of you that hurt. understand that this won’t last forever.

seven:
call someone who usually calls you

eight:
take your socks off and wiggle your toes in the sunshine – the more public the wiggling, the better.

nine:
resolve that the fact of your existence is the very manifestation of magic

ten:
fall asleep with your arms wrapped around yourself. do you know how much you belong to you?
