Take my heart

“I’m never going to want kids
or a house in the suburbs.
I’m never going to want a 9 to 5
and week-end bike rides
that end with watching a game with the same friends
52 times a year.

I want to meet a hundred more people
and live a hundred more places.
I want to be backstage
and on a stage.
I want to sell books
and turn them into scripts.
I want every year
from now until I die
to be different.

people say it’s good to settle.

people look at you with pity
for seeking a life of excitement

like you never learned to grow up
and you’re missing out
on all these years of sameness.

but what a wonder it is
to live life as a child!

you were made for forest green kitchens
and elaborate home cooked meals.
puzzle Sundays
and backyard screams.
summer barbecues
every year
on the same date
at the same place.

and repetition.

there are millions of lives to be lived
and the only one I know I don’t want
is that one.”


“ok fine.
take my heart.


there might be
a million lives
to be lived.

but there’s no other life I want.”

maybe i can help :)

I am no shrink or life expert. In fact life throws me a lot of lemons. But I'm pretty good at making lemonade, being resilient and (I've been told) giving advice. So, if you need an outsider's perspective, I'm here! On love & relationships, on family issues, on work, on anything really. I'll give you my take and maybe (hopefully) it'll help. 100% anonymous of course.

Thank you for reaching out! I will get back to you as soon as possible.
