I’m writing this anonymous letter to remind you of how beautiful life is. Please take it as you will, from any religious or non-religious standpoint. Through many hardships and breath-taking breakdowns, I have realized how important it is to keep going. Our souls have a purpose for us here, hold that idea close to your heart. It may sometimes seem like the present moment is unbearable but if you close your eyes and take a breath, the next moment has already passed. Appreciate times like these when you can create silence in your mind while chaos builds around you. Try to live slowly, love slowly, and let your mind wander. Remember that every morning, light will illuminate the Earth, readying us for the day to come. And the moon will rise over us all in the darkness. Millions will stare into the heart of the moon, contemplating life before falling asleep. We go about this way of existing because we are driven by hope, by a chance that things will change. They will. Travel and experience the world’s wide range of events that play out daily. Put yourself in the seat of a homeless child on the sidewalk. Ask to hear someone’s life story. Use your knowledge to teach someone basic tasks they may have never learned. Be patient and humble. As you take time to better our planet, it will begin to better you. Your personal enlightenment will be gradual. Your soul will be transforming with every passing day. At the end of your journey, I hope you have found forgiveness, kindness, and acceptance for yourself and those around you. Before then, sleep under the stars, drink water from your bare hands, thank Mother Nature for the fruit you eat, and wipe tears from someone’s cheeks. Let yourself fall, climb, learn, and feel it all. Wherever you are, or wherever you will be in the future, let your spirit be free.
