April Writing Challenge- Day 23: A Letter To Someone

There is something so magical and beautiful about holding a pen of any kind between your fingers and gliding it across paper forming words that were probably spoken once but though of countless times.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done this. It’s almost like exercising until I feel that cramp in my hand that I’ve been writing too much and should take a break. The simple act of gliding isn’t the problem. It’s the fact that my mind moves faster than my hand can’t keep up with. I love it still and occasionally still write by hand.

Before, just a couple of years ago, I had written six or more pages of letters that I wanted to say to each and every individual for whatever has happened between us. After I wrote the letters, I looked them over and burned them. It was a spiritual act of letting go and healing from the inside out. Though I felt better than I had previously, I still feel like I need to do more cleansing.

For today’s writing challenge, I am to write a letter to someone, whoever I chooses. The thing is, I don’t know who at the moment. So the following letter may be more general than personal as I been think about who to write a letter to all day long and now it is the next morning.

Dearest you,

I want you to know that you are unique and worthy of being love. Times get difficult and you may find yourself feeling like you are just about water, but know that I am here for you. I am here to support you and be an ear to listen to you when you talk. I will simply do my best to be that friend for you. You have not only me, but a community of people who are here for you. You are never alone.

I may tell you that I have spent time looking for love and hoping that it will someday find me, but I will tell you that though that is over, and don’t be like me who have given up. Practice self-love and put yourself first. Don’t be so trusting and guard your heart. Do affirmations and meditation.

My friend, I can’t tell you how to live your life because we only get one, but I want you to know that if you don’t take your own life serious and do something with it, someone else will. And it may be something you don’t want. Live your dreams. Achieve those goals. Get out there and live! Because you don’t want to look at yourself in the mirror decades later and realize just how much your whole life have pass you by. Take time for yourself to do whatever it is you want to do. And be whoever you want to be. You are the captain of your ship. You are remarkable and so kind. One day before you know it, you will know the real reason why everything happened and why it did. I hope and pray that from this day and many days to come that you continue to be great. I know no one is perfect, but how caring and loving, and the determination and hard work you put into what you do, you will get to where you want to be, who you want to be, and where you want to be in life. Take care, and don’t give up.



Thank you for reading everyone. Have a bless day.

Stay tuned for Day 24.
