Some notes:

  1. Fight.

  2. For.

  3. Love.

  4. I mean it. Do it by smiling for no reason at strangers, tip your hat if you wear one, donate your time or money to community-building initiatives if you have time or money, make good food and share it, tell three people you know on the internet why they’re so great, find a way to get sexy because screw these unsexy times, call a dog a good boy, pray love over everything you pass as you walk down the street. It sounds cheezy as hell, but it matters.

  5. If I can love an asshole goose that was hissing at us today, and I did, you can love something you usually forget to pour love on. I don’t know where all the love goes or how it works, because it’s not as simple as math and I can’t weigh out the befores and afters, but it works. It matters.

  6. Play some music and dance. If you can haul a friend in to do it with you, do.

  7. 🙌
