Darling, get out of bed in the morning and decide that you want to do something you haven't done... or something you haven't had time to do.
Go and shoot a gun. Laugh all day over stupid jokes. Have fun with the secrets you own. Meet an old friend. Have coffee over-load. Have a school lesson and listen every little world the teacher tells you. Tell someone the truth. Open yourself to your co-workers. Love the people around you. Make a bucket list and start doing it.
Go to sleep with a smile on your face.
Wake up with an open heart.
"Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you're supposed to. Stay home on New Year's Eve if that's what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story."
- Susan Cain
