Hey! Hey you. The buddy in the back of my friend’s mind, telling them they aren’t good enough? They aren’t smart enough? They aren’t doing enough? Their voice isn’t big enough? Their dream isn’t important enough? Their passion isn’t impressive enough? They, exactly as they are, aren’t doing life right?
You are wrong, lil guy. You need to sit the frick down, back up, and remember whose mind you’re taking up space in.
That human you are feeding lies to was crafted with a heart, body, and mind made INTENTIONALLY to disrupt their slice of the planet with exactly who they are.
They are strong. They are capable. They have plans set in place meant only for them. Their dream is real, their voice always matters, and their life is in Someone Else’s hands. They are done listening to you. And so am I.
Fight your own lies, friends. If you don’t stand firm in the value of your passions, no one else will either. And once you do, the world will JOIN YOU.
It’s up to you to launch that triumphant march towards the unknown, though. And I hope - with ALL. MY. HEART. - you start today.
Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing stories inspired by my real and imaginative experiences since I learned at age 7 that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
