Day 30: A Letter To Yourself

Dear Cheycara,

I’m pretty sure I don’t say this enough but you’re far stronger than you think you are AND it is about damn time you start giving yourself more credit.

I know your childhood wasn’t exactly as storybook as you would have liked it to be but you know you had a home, a hard working mother even though you would have much rather her be home with you and wonderful friends who were always willing to “rescue” you any time you needed them to. The truth of matter is Cheycara Elaine is that even though your childhood and home life were less than favorable you still became a strong, independent and beautiful woman.

You have done and seen so much in your few decades of life. Even though you endured more hardships than you would have liked, you are still here because God is not done with you yet. You have so much to live for and so much to give the world. You just have to exercise a little bit of patience.

Please do not allow your present unhappiness with work and your unaccomplished dreams discourage you because honestly you have more than enough time to accomplish and fulfill your every desire. You may not see your full potential but I do. You can and will accomplish everything your heart desires.

Don’t be discouraged if your blog and/or story doesn’t reach thousands because you’ve never really been a flashy lets just show the world even though you have a stranger world domination alter ego type of person. Your heart is deeply rooted in community service and we both know that if you can reach one person then you’ve surpassed and overcome the toughest of obstacles.

Fear not young grasshopper for you will be the person your Papa envisioned you to be. Fear not for The Lord will never ever leave your side. Fear not for your words much like your Granny’s charisma will be what sets you apart from everyone around you.

Hopes, dreams and patience will be your best friends. Love, honesty and compassion will be your confidants. Pessimism, impatience and lack of faith will be your utter downfall. If you accomplish nothing in this world know that you will never be a failure in my eyes because you did your very best to get us where we wanted and/or needed to be. For that we are grateful.

Affectionately yours,

Me, Myself and I

Thanks for reading…

Nerdtastic, Write?

I am an aspiring writer trying to find my place in the world. Writing makes me happy, save lives much like coffee, and keeps me grounded. To honestly know me is to understand my way of thinking, my quirky, sarcastic side comments, and left uppercut verbal jabs and side-eye death stares. I’m simplistic but can often be very complex in nature. I love life to the absolute fullest, but I am human; therefore, I have more than my fair share of ups and downs. I am a giant kid, so being goofy comes naturally to me. I secretly strive to be the next Ernest Hemingway, J.K. Rowling, Zora Neale Hurston, or Shonda Rhimes. I openly and stupidly wear every bit of my heart on my sleeve and refuse to apologize for or minimize my true, unedited feelings.
