Franklin,

What are we so scared of?
You only get one shot at this life.
There are no do-overs.
Time wasted is time lost.
The past is a ghost.
The future a dream.
There’s only right now.

We need to forgive each other, Franklin.
Forgive and keep moving forward because we are all so ridiculously imperfect.
And we need to find a place we call “home”.
A place where we know we’re loved and we feel safe.

I see it all so clearly now.
It doesn’t matter if you live in a small apartment or some big mansion on a hill;
doesn’t matter if you live in a mental institution or on some sunny beach in Saint Croix.
It’s all in your mind.
Every moment in your life is what you make it.
Pain, love, fear… happiness.
You choose to feel each of them.
So choose to be happy Franklin, choose to be… happy.
Because happiness is a state of mind.
