Dear life, you could say we don’t have the best relationship,
You are dark, you are hard, you are unfair, and you are even suffocating at times.
You make me feel small, you make me feel helpless and you make me feel broken.
You throw things at me, you are mean to me and you give me heart ache.
But you are also light, you are also beautiful and you are also extraordinary.
You are the reason that I laugh,
You are the reason that I see light,
You are the reason that I feel the warmth of hugs, and you are the reason I am here today.
Dear life, I will survive you.
I see darkness because I know light, I feel sadness because I’ve felt joy. I feel broken because I’ve felt whole. And anyway, some of the best cups of coffee are chipped.
You throw things at me because you know Im good at catching.
You are not unfair, without all of the wicked seeming things that you toss my way I would not be able to recognise the good and the beautiful in you.
Dear life, I love you.
You are a journey, an adventure, you are excitement, mystery, joy and love all bundled up in one.
You are a roller coaster, you are scary, you are fun, you make me scream with fear and with joy.
Thank you for giving me my lows so I can recognise my highs.
Thank you for giving me late night car rides with the music blasting, for giving me stomach aching and breath taking laughs, for giving me 2nd chances.
Thank you for creating babies and puppies and art and music and love and even pain.
Thank you for giving me the chance to live you.
The most beautiful things always hurt, even roses have thorns
Sometimes there seems to be more dark than light in you these days but there is light and I will heal and sometimes the healing is the aching.
Dear life, you are worth living
