I’ve been writing and writing and writing and I encountered a note to my year-later self in my journal, a few pages before I began to run out of pages completely:
This was where the bookmark was when I first bought this journal on 3.16.09.
Right now I am writing on 3.18.09 in the middle of the night. I know not when
you will read this but I pray it finds you in
good spirits, in a time of your life when
every moment is filled with exquisite
love and simple enjoyment for
simply being alive
. Hopefully that
describes every moment, really.
For real. All I have to sayis love yourself, let go,
stay in the present,
your fears, move on
from the past,
have a beautiful day, my lovely.
Reminds me of the Never Give Up/Be Strong/Keep Pressing On “toolkit”– uplifting and life-changing quotes, videos, songs, etc.– I compiled when I had sunk down into the deepest emotional abyss I’d ever experienced.
(It actually wasn’t called the Never Give Up toolkit– it didn’t have a name– the title was simply: Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.)
I’ll be posting it here soon, along with several other entries that have been wafting around in my head but haven’t seemed to want to take the leap from mind to memory 😉
(Edit: Here it is! The Never Give Up/Be Strong/Keep Pressing On kit!)
