On Friday the 22nd, we celebrate the diary. Our companion that never judges us or our stories.
So today write an open letter telling us about your diary memories. Would you write in it every day? And what would you write about?
Tag your open letter "diary".
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? And what would you prefer to be? Write an open letter and tag it introvert or extrovert, depending on what you are!
Leave a comment below when you're done.
Even in a mobile medium letters are meant to last, in space and time, heart and mind.
Thanks to everyone who has helped us power the lasting messages of the next generation.
We will always be here.
Walking on your wavelength,
I can feel you,
You ache like I do,
Love like I love,
A smile adorns your face
As brightly as it does mine,
Your battle wounds are Braille
Across the landscape of your universe,
Telling reasons why you are you,
Similar to the reasons why I am me;
Allows me to know you,
Gives precious moments of connectivity,
Before we traverse our separate paths;
But how much better I am,
For having stumbled across you,
Who have reminded me
We are all battle wounds
In various stages of healing;
This crazy idea of mine:
Maybe we could all help each other heal
Through the collective understanding
That I am you
And you are me.
Maybe you never gave me a piece of your heart completely to begin with. And the reason I feel empty as mine was given long before we said hello.
Take care of your business:
Exercise, budget, inner-peace...
Get serious about yourself for once in your life. You only have one.
I don't want to fall for the potential of who you might be. See, I fall fast, but I'm learning how to slow down. I'm a hopeful romantic but I don't want just anyone; I want a special someone. All I ask is this: be honest, and not first date honest, but be honest with exactly who you are like it's the last time we May talk. I'm not looking for perfect, I am looking for real, so please do not bring your representative. Bring the real you, flaws and all, and if we are meant to vibe then we will flow.
I do not think I am better than people. I do know that I am better than some of the situations that people try to put me in.
When nightfall makes its way, I find comfort with the moon and stars. Somehow, they silence the voices of ridicule in my head.
I miss that kind of love the most,
the kind that finds
new reaches of your soul,
the one that curls your toes
with just a simple kiss.
That’s what I miss -
the way you made me feel
deeper than this every day girl.
You made me feel extraordinary.
I don't compete against
To uplift others means
I'm never looking down on them.
I applaud their strength,
and I remind them that we never
know how strong we are
until we are tested.
And this life will test you...
But it's not a competition.
I want us all to make it.
Hope is a reason you survive
Having hope is the best gift you can give to yourself
Hope is a reason you stick to something
Hope is a reason you live in anticipation
Hope is a reason everyone strives for a better tomorrow
Hope makes you work harder with smile
Hope makes you wait with a belief
Hope makes you keep going
Because on the other side of hope is happines
Because HOPE is Hold On Pain Ends
If only I had not made you my light in the dark alley I found myself walking on, the end of the tunnel that somehow my brain convinced me that you were. I try to write you out but I am scared that if I do, you will go away. The Reality of you already have gone would become strong enough to burst open its door that I have been using all my strength to keep shut. I don't know how it happened, but suddenly you were my Sun and I couldn't stop myself from revolving around you. Why is this need in the pit of my stomach so strong, to impress you. To create myself into colours because I am grey, my friend. I have never known white and black but I look at you and the butterflies in my stomach suddenl...
Aren't we all tiny parts in the gigantic sky,
Trying to make our existence glow brighter?
Are too transparent
And I do not know
If that is
Or a curse.
- Ruby Dhal
letters of love
upon your skin
to kiss away
John Lennon once sang it. "Power to the people". And we would like to continue that thought.
With all that is happening in the world right now, let's show them that there's still beauty, compassion and love.
Write an open letter that is positive and motivating for others. It could be about inspiring others to do good, or write about something you did for someone. Or perhaps share some good news you've heard.
Share your love, your compassion and positivity with the world!
Tag your letter 'positivity'.
See the stamp on this letter? We're celebrating International day of peace!
Which will be on the 21st of September.
Celebrate with us by writing a letter about what peace means to you. Perhaps even share some ideas how we could improve peace in this world.
Tag your open letter 'peace'.
