15 Minutes To Live -The Story That Has To Be Written

15 minutes to live - the story that has to be written You are not alone.

Just know that. Eat that. Believe that. And then start acting like it.

Stop walking around like you’re IT.
Like you’re all that matters ( or doesn’t matter ) in this tiny world of yours.

Start connecting. Start caring about other people. Let people know you care. Let people get to know you. Let people in. For Christ’s sake,


Believe that you can love. And be loved. Believe there are those out there who know how to love you. Maybe not perfectly. Help them. Reach out and ask,

“How do you want to be loved?”

Then tell them how you would like to be loved.
Love every chance you get.

To my parents:

 I’m sorry, for not being what you wanted me to be. Which was something, I believe you felt, would have redeemed you in some way. I made a point that redemption would never be yours.

I apologize for that. That was punishing. Punishing you for not seeing or liking ME.

Pissed me off really.
But, I am sorry for spending so much time trying to prove you wrong.

You’re human. We all deserve a chance to fuck-up.

To my daughter:

Go for it! You are amazing! More than you know! Find love that is good and true. Express who you truly are. You are golden ! You are beautiful ! And I love you more than words could ever express.

Know that and keep it in your heart always. I know you are loved and watched over by heaven above. I know you will be all right. Hell, you will be awesome! Because you have it all in you!

To my love:

I miss you, I miss you, I miss you.

I can leave peacefully. I know there is a world where we go. I know I am welcomed there.

For those who don’t know this, please find out, while you’re still on earth.

It makes things so much easier.
