Never let the fire go out.

It’s okay, you know, to not be able to put to words what it is that you want out of your life. To have this persistent and wild longing for something and not know what it really is, to lose sleep over something that you just cannot put your finger on. To feel it, yet not understand what’s it that you are feeling. 

It’s okay to have that strange feeling dancing inside of you, let it burn magnificently. Let it fuel your cravings. Let it inspire you to go on impulsive adventures, to long for the smell of the ocean, to take a roadtrip without a map. Let it provide you with courage to finally get lost in a place where nobody knows your name, to peacefully drink your coffee at a street cafe to the background music of a foreign language. Don’t let it dry out, do not ignore it and go on with your daily life. Search for it. Try out new things, explore your inner cravings. Look for it in new places, new people, experiment with new experiences, explore your desires. 

And maybe one day you’ll be lucky enough to stumble upon it. Or maybe you won’t. Maybe you’ll find  something else in the way. But looking back, let me promise you, you won’t regret a second of it.
