A Letter to The Editor


There are days when you hurt, when you feel like your going to break. You want to hold your head high and act like there is nothing wrong. You want to fight these feeling, but more then anything you want to fight what is bringing these feelings. The worst part is you don't know where they are coming from. You don't understand why most days you are fine, but some days you cannot shake this feeling. This feeling of hurt, sadness, doom, and loneliness. On these days, Hold on don't give in to the thought that it won't get better or that you are alone.

You are a beautiful person. You have achieved things with strengths that you have pulled from places people had no idea existed. You can achieve your dreams, you can do whatever you want to do. Yes the struggles will find you, and you will have to fight your way through them. When you look back you will see how much you have grown, how many people you have touched, and how you literally saved your own life.

I know you are scared of a lot of things. I know because of the past, you have a lot of anxiety towards the future. You need to take a deep breath and let that go. What has happened is in the past, the future is going to happen, but the present is here and you need to live it. Stop holding on and fearing for the future, live for today. Let things happen, let yourself grow, let today guide you into tomorrow, let your heart be open to opportunity.

You grew up faster then most. You gave up a lot of your childhood for other people. Let that go, it is nobodies fault. You now have the time in your life that is yours, and nobody else stop giving it to the past. Be great full for the challenges you were given, for the family and friends who were there every step of the way. Look around you and feel the love from everyone, give the love to everyone.

Remember that this is life, There is feeling, remember that these feelings mean you are alive. That you are still breathing. Remember that you are still blessed to be here, that even though some of the most valuable people in your life have passed, you still have time to change the world. It is in your hands, this is your world, everyones world do your part NOW, today to change it.

You Can

  "Words can never adequately convey the incredible impact of our attitudes toward life. The longer I live the more convinced I become that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it."

With these two things together, I believe you can make it through almost anything. 

Lots of love this week.

new day

"you have a special place in this world, all you have to do is find it.
do not give up on yourself, on the truths you have realized.
do not give into those who would crush your dreams like nutshells.
and never turn away from forever love."

i like the idea of a fresh start. i love this quote. today  i set out to start classes, and to meet new people and to get the wheels rolling quickly towards getting to where i need to be. not so much doing things for other people, this helps me remember its okay to look out for yourself, its needed most days. and that most of the time things are not as bad as they seem.  i have come to realize that when something doesn't work out, eventually we will see why it didn't work out and we can see the better side of things.  i have learned this. at times its hard to accept but life seems to go easier when i do.

"You know the moments in life when your dumb. Flat out, no excuse, no reason, you were just dumb."

I was dumb yesterday. When I do something stupid,  and I realize it well it makes me physically ill. I stew over it for hours/days. I hate it because it wears on me, and even though it probably doesn't. It makes me feel like it effects the relationships. When in reality its the stress that I put on myself over the situation that effects the relationship. I hate being dumb.  Does anybody else do this?

When In Doubt

"so never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar,
never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome.
just keep your mind open and suck in the experience.
and if it hurts, you know what?
it's probably worth it."

Post Secret

I love the idea of sharing your biggest secret, long lasting regret, or biggest stress in life and writing it down, or making it into art, and mailing it away. Frank Warren opened up his mailbox to the world and let them do this. It's a safe way to let things go and be free of them. To Take a break and start over as the new you you have been hoping to be.

Warren Has Said -
"I think when you look at each postcard, it can almost act like a 6-inch-by-4-inch window into someone's soul. And they're allowing you to peek in and share something from their own lives that they haven't felt comfortable sharing with their closest friends and family,"

I love reading these, I love that one guy has put this project together, and has done it with such class. He has his blog and doesn't put any advertisements on it for the mere fact that he doesn't do it for money, He does it because he loves it. I think it is awesome, I also think it helps millions of people, in a ton of different ways.

There is a blog And This is What She Said That does Tell me a secret Tuesday. It's a similar idea but blog style, Where you can go on once a week and spill your guts.

Love them both-

Getting it.

There comes a time when you have to choose whether your gonna be happy or not. That's it. No matter what comes our way, death, stress, work, disease, WHATEVER it is. It's our choice. We are taught that our whole life's, I may or may not just be getting it.
