I want you to know

You change things. You make things better… you make me better. The way that you see the world is admirable and I’m drawn to it in the way the tide is drawn to the gravitational pull of the moon. Bright, reliable and relentless.

I love who you are. I love what you stand for. I love you. I love everything about you and, though I know change is inevitable in life, I hope your change comes through growth. I hope that, much like a fine wine, the very basic core of who you are and what you stand for only gets better with time.

Thank you for your kindness, for your sincerity, for your generosity in a world where it seems to be dwindling at increasing rates with each day that passes. Thank you for making me believe more and believe better of myself and better of everyone. Thank you for always seeing the bright side, even on a dull day. Thank you for existing. I know you probably don’t feel like it makes a difference, but your existence in this world does. You are the change that I want to be and the change that I wish to see.

Thank you for always trying, even when I tell you not to. And thank you for never turning away when I tell you to leave, because you know that it’s the moments when people push others away that they need someone the most. Thank you for understanding. Thank you for never questioning and thank you for always supporting, even when I don’t deserve it.

Thank you for being you. For being strong, independent, intelligent and brave. Thank you for being thoughtful, grateful, insightful and humble.

I want you to know you change things. Because you do.

    1. I actually had someone in mind when I was writing it (someone who isn’t me) but, it would be a pretty stellar self-affirmation if I so decided. Thank you for your sweet note!

    1. I hope that you always remember to love yourself and remind yourself to go easy on yourself. You deserve it. And you’re absolutely worth everything written there and more ❤


  2. Thank you I know it was written in genera to everyone.l I felt it was written for me and at me, I read all your pieces and I have others that hit me. I loved your honesty and love put into to it . Have you ever thought of picking some of pieces into a book & market it. I think you could easily make a far amount writing. I think you could be the second Erma Bram-beck. Your laid back honest look at things are almost the same, If you’re not to busy check out her book “The Grass grows Greener over the Septic Tank” & you’ll see what mean. Thank you make me feeling loved & wanted today in my long lonely Journey that the second hurdle is yet to come.


    1. Thank you for the compliment in suggestion my writing is good enough to sell and comparing me to Erma Brombeck. That’s a really nice compliment to read and a huge honour. To me, I’ve never really thought of my thoughts or ideas as being anything outside of the norm. I feel like everyone thinks like I do, and they could probably vocalize it in the same way I do. I guess I just don’t see my writing as all that special. But I do appreciate it when kind strangers acknowledge my words.

      And always remember that you are loved and wanted and perfect just the way you are. It’s a great big world out there and you absolutely belong and will find your fit soon!
