A Letter to Yourself

I hope that life is treating you kindly, that you find your way even when the path you walk dims and obstacles are thrown in your way. I hope that you find kindness in others along your way, kindness in the form of direction when you feel lost. Kindness in a helping hand, kind words, and gentle nudges when you are headed in the wrong direction. I hope that you find yourself after being lost and worn down for so long. I hope that when you look into the mirror you will see kind eyes and a good soul. I hope that you learn to speak kindly and forgiving of yourself.

May your life be adventurous and big. Remember that when I say big I mean do not make yourself small, not for your dreams, not for people or things you want to achieve. Be colorful and uniquely you. Let others grow to match you instead of cutting yourself down. Protect yourself with self-love and let the ugly gnarly walls of bitterness go and let your love and strength carry you. Be so in touch with who you are that you become bulletproof and unable to be penetrated by the ugliness of others. Lay down the weight you have been carrying for too long, go into life lighter, and thrive as I know you can and were always meant to do. Do not stand still and wait for others to make your decisions for you, do not rely on other people for the things you want to achieve, remember there is a difference between collaboration and teamwork and reliance.

Take chances instead of sitting idling on the fence and going nowhere. Make choices instead of standing still and hoping it will be made for you. Divine guidance is not for any and everything in life, don’t expect an answer for every question asked, you’re asking for decisions to be made for you. There is no cheat code for a map, there are no cheat codes, sometimes you have to decide all in good faith of yourself and you have to do all of the work on your own. Again, help and reliance are not the same things. Stop setting down goals and dreams when things get hard, it’s temporary, and when you overcome it, the sense of accomplishment will be well earned and more gratifying. Be kind to others on your journey, remember your words are heard and felt too. Speak to others as you would like to be spoken to. Treat others as you want to be treated. Respect is given before it is received. Remember that everyone in life has a story listen instead of doing all of the talking. Remember on the bad days that it is just a bad day, every storm passes. Remember that I love you every step of the way.

I was born and raised in the smallest of towns in Southwest Virginia. A town that is extraordinarily active, yet a town that is like it's very own little mini Bible belt. My dad was Baptist, my mom pentecostal, and I'm paranormal. I would venture to say it is somewhat of a family trait. One that is met with equal acceptance and curiosity as much as it is met with skepticism. Individually and collectively so much has been experienced and witnessed at times to such a degree that one might wonder how on earth there is room for doubt. I dont have all the answers, I do not have it all figured out. Im as human as everyone else relying heavily many mornings on a lot of coffee and a little Jesus. In fact, I can't decide what I want for dinner most days. One constant is I cannot go a single day without chocolate. Pour a cup of coffee, or a little tea and whiskey and join me in my confessions of a haunted freak.
