If you’ve been following me for a while, you won’t be surprised to know that I share things from my writing journals. Often times things that I’ve written to myself end up being something that reveals some truths. And the truth is universal, so I end up sharing them with you.
Over the next few posts, I’ll be writing you some love letters.
These are lifted from the letters I wrote to myself back in 2019. I had little to no objectivity on them at the time. They were just something I felt like doing, so I did.
I came across them today while sorting things in my office. (As often happens when supposedly working, I end up in the nearest chair reading.)
I found myself stirred by the letters and felt they weren’t just written for me.
Do you want to live out loud? This is how you do it.
Love hard on you.
Change how you perceive things.
Know that most things are small stuff inhabiting a very big day. Never let the small occupy the big spaces. Live your life on a large scale, and let the small things remain small. In this way, your life will not allow for being swallowed up in minutia.
For we are dreamers, big ones—and we approach these big things by giving them the space that is due them. Big dreams cannot exist in the small spaces left by allowing the small to occupy big places.
Run this day, run your life, giving space for beautiful, big dreams.
When your work here is completed, you will look it over and know the other, the small, was only a mirage. The BIG, the BOLD, the BEAUTIFUL—your life—is of your choosing.
With confidence, let the small disappear as the big fills everything.
You are so loved.
‘You are my sunshine, my lovely sunshine. You make me happy when skies are gray. You’ll never know dear how much I love you.’
P.S. Risky business. This thing of writing and sending it out. If I let fear stop me, you have no idea how many missives of mine would have never seen the light of day. I don’t get it right always—maybe only a very small percentage of the time. But I believe in following my heart which often seems to involve…taking chances. That is life. If this letter resonates with you, I’d love to hear from you—you can leave a comment just below.
P.P.S. You may be feeling inspired to do this for yourself. You know, get quiet and write a letter to YOU. It’s your higher self speaking to your regular old self. It knows so much more and finds it very easy to fall in love with …YOU!
