Be Careful And Think Intently

Dear Someone,

I saw your email and I am so proud of you and what you have reached by yourself. Your perseverance and strength despite problems, criticisms, and gossip are worthy of admiration. Now that you have known how to get ahead and be stronger than ever before, I am writing to you today in a duality of purpose. First is to let you know that every day is a new day with new difficulty and opportunities. Not everything and not every drama around you deserves your time and attention. Times are changing and it has become very necessary that you do whatever you can to live a very good life so that your nights won’t be full of regrets. You have to become careful with what you say because your words have incredible power! Use them right otherwise you will be snared by them (Proverbs 6:2).

Live Mindfully

Dear Someone,

This is my first letter to you this year and by far the longest. You are going to need to read it twice because I want you to stop looking back at 2018 and most especially your life and weeping uncontrollably. I sent you several letters last year reminding you never to let yourself stay sad and to understand that by leaving behind your old self and taking a leap of faith into the unknown, you will find out what you are truly capable of becoming.

Don’t Lose Yourself

Dear Someone,

If you found this letter and you are having a hard time, feeling like you’ve lost yourself instead of finding yourself, mentally and emotionally drained, and are scared of getting hurt again, that means it is for you. I am sending you this letter in the very final moments of my last evening of this glorious year 2018. I do so with so much gratitude and amazement. It is been an awesome year, and I am so excited to see what 2019 will bring for you and me.

As you know, 2019 will be another blank book, and we can’t but trust that God is going to write our story Himself. 2018 might not have started off great but you need to understand that even though you may still be going through a rough time right now, even though it might look like you have dug yourself deep in a pit that would be hard to get out of, you shouldn’t be looking for happiness from the same place you lost it. You shouldn’t be looking at where you fell, but where you slipped.

Forgive Yourself And Begin Again

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is looking back at your life in regret instead of looking forward. You that is looking back at your life and can’t identify the person that you have become. You that is looking back at your life and realizing that in a quest of making everyone around happy, you have lost yourself. For everyone that’s looking back at their lives and seeing a series of mistakes and sins, for everyone that’s looking back at 2018 and thinking that 2019 will just get worse up the same, this letter is for you. I don’t know if you are a follower, but I am glad you stumbled on this letter. It’s also a letter for me, to realize how much I have done and what I have become.

Don’t Throw In The Towel

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is letting a bad breakup cause you to stray away from God. You that’s letting a bad chapter stop you from having a great story. You that’s allowing a bad situation and experience to paralyze you with fear and to define your journey and your entire life.

Breathe and Be

Dear Someone,

I read your email, and I am assuming that you already know why I am sending you this letter. You can’t always wait for the perfect time, or to be perfectly prepared for what doesn’t have your name on it. Sometimes you just have to jump or let go by teaching your heart to accept what cannot be changed. You can’t continue to wait for the “perfect” time to know what’s real. “Perfect” does not exist. It will never come and life is too short to wonder what could have been.

Set Yourself Free

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that’s finding it so hard to leave someone that’s perfectly wrong for you. You that’s finding it hard to leave your abuser. You whose addiction is easier to get but hard to leave. You that has forgotten how to love but remember how to always fight. You that’s tired of pretending, pretending that you are happy even though the pain is killing you silently.
