The Case for Being Messy




What comes to mind?

An office cubicle? A 9–5?

Transformative, eye-opening love you’ve never felt before

What comes to mind?

Spreadsheets? The exact same meal in a hefty food storage container?

She’s a mess. A beautiful mess. A work in progress.

Aren’t we all?

We evolve, adapt, and search for joy in life…

It’s not a linear process.

Y= mx + b isn’t going to cut it.

Life progresses on an electromagnetic spectrum

Our wavelengths vary

But there’s no need to be weary, afraid, or live in regret

Splatter that spaghetti sauce all over your stove top

Take your hair out of that tight ponytail

Dance until your legs give out

Laugh louder then you ever thought possible, and consistently smile at the simple joys

Cover yourself in glitter

Yeah, you’ll probably leave a mess…

Pink vodka, glitter, and puppy paw prints 🐾

Messy expressive text messages are healthier than passive aggressive entrapments

Speak your truth with vibrato

You are the author of your life

You are allowed to edit
