When you start to crack open, don't waste a moment gathering your old self up into something like you knew before. Let your new self splash like sunlight into every dark place & laugh & cry & make sounds you never made & thank all that is holy for the gift, because now you have no choice but to let all your love spill out into the world.
Once, there was a girl who wanted to change the world & at first, she thought it'd be easy, because if everyone could see how beautiful it'd be, it'd take about a minute, but all the people she talked to were too busy to stop & listen. So, she went off & did beautiful things all on her own & pretty soon people were stopping & asking if they could come along & do that, too & that's how she figured out how worlds change.
We sat at the edge of the world & you asked me to tell you why & though a thousand things came to mind, underneath them all was a quiet voice saying, Because you remind me of everything there is in this world to love.
When we were kids, we used to say infinity plus one, even though it makes no sense because infinity has no end. But when I see the way your eyes dance when you laugh, or feel how our hands fit together like they're made perfectly for exactly this, I think to myself, of course infinity plus one because even all the way to the end of forever, I will want one day more.
