A Motivational Letter to Myself
I have been hidden from the outside world for such a long time. The excuse is plenty, but there is only one real reason. I was depressed! Yes, you heard it right. I was painfully depressed! I felt weak and vulnerable. For years, I woke up every morning questioning myself if I were in the right direction. My heart begs me to “Just do it!” , but my reasonings tell me to “Stop! Not safe”.
I did not want to share with anyone, even with my close friends, and love ones anything about my desires. What will they think of me? Will they look at me as I am a crazy man? Will they cry or laugh with me? Will they support or will they against my dreams? I was terrified!
So, I decided to “bury” myself. I shut the doors, stay quiet, and try to tune in with my true self. Amazingly, I have learned so much from that “alone journey.” I have learned to trust my instinct. Thank you Mother Nature for giving each of your children the wisdom within. I have learned to cherish my curious, naughty mind with no judgment. Most importantly, I have learned to stop doubting myself and be courageous enough to say YES to my passion.
I am grateful for everything I have had the chance to experience. I am grateful to be a friend of the greatest people from all walks of life. I am grateful to be here!
I promise 2018 will be the year of love, laugh, and fulfillment.
Happy new year to everyone! Wishing you all the best!
P.S: This is the letter I wrote to myself in the New Year’s Day of 2018.
