Don’t Be So Down On Yourself

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that’s been judged by people who only know your name and not your story. You that’s been judged by people you don’t even know simply because of your last name and for things that your family members have done way before you were born or thought of. You that have always been judged by people for just one mistake you’ve accidentally done. This letter is for you, you that have been judged by people you care about, ignored by those who said they’d never leave and hurt by the ones you love the most.

You’re Not Your Past!

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that’s stuck in one way, shape, or form with an ex or somebody or something from your past. You that is hiding from an ex forgetting that they are in your past, not your future. You that is hurting from having someone in your heart, but can’t have them in your arms.

Live Your Life

I just wanted to remind you, Dear Someone, to be thankful for what you have — you will end up having more. Be thankful for true love and true friends — they are hard to find. Be thankful for your setbacks — you never know what God is saving you from. Be thankful for the struggles you go through — they make you stronger and wiser. Be thankful for those that left you — friends will come and go but life goes on. Be thankful for your job — there are many that would love to be in your position.

Most importantly, be thankful for your life no matter how good or bad you think life is for you right now — someone somewhere is fighting to survive. “No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus” — 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (TLB).

This is my letter for you today — count your blessings, find a thousand reasons to “be thankful” and happy.

In Him,
#IAmAlipapa.
