A Letter to Self

Dear You,
Thank you for writing this for me.

Dear Self,
The universe seems to have been conspiring against me...or maybe it's the voices in my head that wish for me to believe so- you see, I never blame myself, ever! Blame is something I can never accept because I believe I am never wrong.

I believe I exert more effort than required and that this should be appreciated. I wish I had more time on my hands...with a "job", two classes a week, friends to meet, and family- I never seem to have time for anything, let alone myself.

More split ends, eeky nails. Dark circles round my eyes...

Yes, that's all I wish I could do. I wish I could fly. Fly and never come back. Oh and I wish my parents would give me a break, honestly, that's the only reason why I took that job; so they would give me a break and it never seems to stop. I know that's a lot of complaining and negative energy but I need to let it all out, okay? I never even have the time to write in my moleskine, or read! I hate it!!

I have to present on international resource movements and foreign direct investment a week from today and I need to start working on it. ew? Yes, it was my choice! mhmm, I am an idiot.

Anyway, you should be looking for more happiness and happy lists and bright sunlight and the sea..and sand. And wind in my hair...and ice cold lemonade because it's hot.

I love you, you are possible and you will make a change,
Love,
Sara

This is lovely Sara, it truly is.

I can imagine you flying, but please don't go far away. Okay?

Here is beautiful, here is the world you can "write" your thought. maybe it's an impossible thing in "the other world". Or maybe there is no one there listening to your words. But we are here. and we are listening. and we are understanding, and it's so so so beautiful!
You're beautiful and so is your world.

Smile. now. okay?

love you
xo

Just always remember change is a good thing.

Nothing happens if nothing changes.

Dear Sara,

Your words are beautiful and your honesty is a constant inspiration to me. You are already making a change.

Oh and I believe I exert more effort than required and that this should be appreciated as well :)

'you are possible' is the most beautiful line in that whole thing.
seriously, you're good at brilliance in the hidden places, miss.

good luck on your project and don't forget to take care of you!
don't let anyone or anything put a bowl over your bright shining lamp!

love&light!

You're not an idiot girl, and trust me negative energy soon becomes positive energy! :)

Vivi said...

Hi!!! I'm almost back to normal posting - you have been tagged in my blog.

I think a letter to yourself helps release all those feelings inside. So you may not be able to write about it but you are sort of letting it out.
Happy lists are good and I would love to make one too sometime. Be happy hun xx

Randi Lee said...

You are possible, and you WILL make a change. Because you're fabulous... and that's what fabulous people do. :-) I hope you're having a better week! And I hope you have a phenomenal weekend!

If I were to wager a guess at why, I’d say that users don’t “browse” forms. The interaction style users engage in with forms is different, and requires its own study and design best practices. This is a very interesting post, and the comments are also fantastic to read. I’ll have poses to have a little re-think about my own contact form on our new website, as this some interesting questions!

Hope things go well for you.
