I just wanted to thank you for your letter and drop you a few lines. You asked for an autographed pic and Im completely out at this time. If you’d like, you can write me in a week or two and I should have some by then.
I hope you’re staying out of trouble and building your life stronger as each day passes. A lot of times people have this addiction to a more exciting life, but in the negative sense of the word exciting. In other words, a clean, normal life is just too fucking boring. They’re like hogs, they can’t stay clean for too long, they’ve got to roll around in the mud.
Although mud is cool for hogs, it’s not cool for people’s lives. Trust me, boring is better. Try to find excitement in boring. For people raised in storms, a normal life is bland but learn to love bland. Some people love greasy cheese burgers and fries, but it’s much healthier to eat dry tuna, carrot sticks and drink water. It might not taste as exciting as the meat lovers pizza with an ice cold Coke, but you’ll feel better at the end of the day. Sure, the exciting food gives you the flavors you’re addicted to, but the end result is destruction.
Of course, I’m using food to explain life. Many people just can’t settle down and make good decisions. All the dumb shit is what makes them feel alive, so they choose the “exciting”, unhealthy and short-lived lives of fools. But if you keep eating the dry tuna and carrot sticks of life, your tastebuds will begin to change and you’ll start finding the excitement in being healthy.
It’s not an easy fight, but fuck it, man, just fight with all you got because you’re worth it. Get your “ life tastebuds” on healthy mode, even if it’s a bit boring. The days might taste a little bland for 3 or 5 or 10 years, but one day you’ll look around and see that you’ve built a beautiful world for yourself.
I hope you enjoyed this short letter, and maybe even benefitted from it. I’ll write you more, in a bit.
P.S. If you guys have any questions about the letter, please ask.
