note to self

Work hard.
Pay your debts, they're someone else's time.
Love with all you have and a little more.
Be vulnerable, there's opportunity there.
Know when to say goodbye.
Cry. You have to. Like drinking water.
Play like a child because you are one.
Give. There's enough to go around.
Thank everyone, especially those you think you can't.
Step forward.
Forgive, because why not?

Laugh!

Fail. Fail at all of this and much much more.
And fail again. 
Learn. Innovate. Repeat.
You owe it to yourself.

Sincerely,
Matthew Allen
Failing successfully since 1975.
