1: tell your best friend how much they’ve always meant to you, even if you haven’t talked to them in years
2: bake yourself a cake from scratch and buy things from the grocery store to decorate it with. Make it pretty for yourself. Don’t give a piece to anyone else. You’re allowed to keep some things for yourself
3: go to a new country. Go outside every day and walk around. Get to know the town. Treat it like you’ve lived there your whole life. Eat wonderful food. Visit all the cool landmarks. Just have fun.
4: go to CVS or Walgreens and buy all the cheap makeup. Cover your face with all the different colours. Laugh at yourself if it looks stupid. Sometimes it’s fun to see how you would look with different styles
5: take a year out of your life to live recklessly. Change your hairstyle every month. Move to a new part of your state. Eat completely different food than you’re used to. Drink a little or a lot. Gain weight. Lose weight. Don’t let other people bother you.
6: take singing lessons. Even if you know you’re horrible and can’t match pitch, try it out. Maybe you’re better than you thought.
7: go backpacking across the beach and the dunes and into a forest. Sit in your tent as the rain pours down. Jump in the water when it warms up. Stay up telling stories about summers from years ago as you sit around the campfire counting the stars.
8: spend an entire day reading. Lay in your bed, sit in a park, or go to a coffee store or bookstore. Bring a series of books and read them all in the day.
9: fall in love. Experience heartbreak. Fall in love again. Repeat the cycle over and over. Eventually you’ll find the one. Even if all you do is discover yourself. Remind yourself that never getting married doesn’t make you alone.
10: teach yourself about a new religion or culture. Don’t die not knowing the world. Learn about the rest of the world. Be spiritual even for a day.”
