32. / be.

(things on my mind on this 32nd birthday)

be kind.
be disciplined.
be honest, because the alternative is too complicated.
be willing to accept loss forever.*
be patient, as there are only so many good things to go around.
be respectful: of yourself, of others.
be humble; there’s much you don’t know.
be hungry: live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life.**
be well-dressed.
