for the rain to fall

30 Day Photo Challenge Day Seven. A picture that makes you cry.

I can't. Not because I cry but it makes me sick to my stomach. At least there is rejoicing too.

these are the scars deep in your heart

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Thirty. Your reflection in the mirror.

Dear Self,

You are like the ugly duckling; you weren't much to look at when you were going through junior high and high school. The crazy hair, the braces, bad skin, baggy clothes, scrawny kid; nothing changed during those years. But in the last few years you have become an elegant woman. True, there are days when you still have crazy hair but you play it off as the weather permits, the bad skin is only due to hormones (which means nothing can be done so deal by covering it up with concealer!), nothing to wear, and uncomfortable in your own skin. 
BUT. You have beautiful natural waves so play them up! You will never have bad teeth again so keep them good. Always keep your skin clean and moisturized. You have an amazing wardrobe and should give some of it away to those who have nothing. And you have a fantastic body. I mean, look at that tanned skin, those long toned legs, those strong hands and arms! You have come a long way from what you use to be. And it isn't always easy when you look at other girls. But you don't wear make-up and can't expect to look certain ways without it. You are nothing that you aren't, you have never pretended to be. And that's what makes me love you most. Never change that; never be something you aren't for anyone. I'm so proud of you.

Love You Incredibly Much.

the ways two hearts can meet, we were made to collide

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Twenty-Nine. The person you want to tell everything to but are too afraid to.

(I suppose I am writing this letter to a future time and future person but I think that is okay. This is real; this is how I feel)

Dear Future Husband,

       You don't know how hard it is for me to write this. Not only because I don't know who you are or if I've even ever met you (I actually hope to God I haven't) but because I find it so hard to open myself up to people. I hate being vulnerable and setting myself up for any hurt that may follow that. I need you to know that that is how I am and I am not trying to hurt you. One day I will let you know every little thing of importance but it will not be easy for me. I have been hurt before. I am ready to hurt again but it will be different because it will be with you the person I would give my very life for. I know you would never intentionally hurt me but want to share in my own hurt and be vulnerable with me. That concept is so lovely to me and I cannot wait for the time when I share everything with you so we can grow together fully. You will harvest my love and respect. There may be times I will not tell you things because of the love and respect I have for you so be patient with me and understand that it is because of you that I have made that choice.

Your Love,

throw up you rockfist if you're feelin it when I drop this

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Twenty-Eight. Someone that changed your life.

Dear Katie,

       Yes you have changed my life in the best way possible. You are the one friend I feel who can be totally high on Jesus all the time and who I can talk about spiritual things freely with at all times. You push me to be a better Christian, thanks so much for that! You push me to know Him better and learn new things about myself through him.

       You want to know how I am, just saying 'fine' won't cut it with you and even if I'm not in the mood to talk about it I will anyways with you. The silences between us are never awkward but rather reflective as I think about the good and bad times I've had you as a friend. Even through the hard times in your life you counted me as a friend even if you didn't want to share everything. It's just been in the last little while we've actually this close (but I enjoy going over to your Grandma's to drink tea and hang out in your rad room).

        Hopefully we can hang out again before you move to Calgary for school. Haha maybe you'll meet a guy there ;) Just kidding! Kinda....

we're breaking free, and making history

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Twenty-Seven. The friendliest person you knew for only one day.

Dear Britt & Courtney,

       You two are the friendliest girls I've ever meet! You aren't afraid to come up and start talking to new people in your church. If I lived in town I would totally go to that church just because you two are there and made me feel so welcome! Even though your cousins were visiting you made sure you got to know us. I hope to go back next year and see you both again and hear how you (and the rest of your family) are doing. 


Tuesday, 13 July 2010

people will come and they'll go

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Twenty-Six. The last person you made a pinky promise to.

Dear Last Person I Made a Pinky Promise To,

I don't remember who you are, or what we promised, but I hope we kept that promise or both were okay with the outcome.

Sincerely the Other Pinky Promiser.

a thousand to one and a million to two

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Twenty-Five. The person you know who is going through the worst of times.

Dear A,

I know this probably isn't easy for you. I was shocked when I heard and it seems like many of your friends were. I don't know what to say but like T said, if there is anything we can do for you don't hesitate to ask. We're here for you. So many of us are sticking by you so fight on!

Yours truly, Smiley

i know what i gotta do

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Twenty-Four. The person that gave you your favourite memory.

Dear Me,

I can't remember my favourite memory but I'm sure it had to include myself somehow so thanks for the good times.

Love Me Always.

how it feels to kiss those lips, but your kiss is not for him

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Twenty-Three. The last person you kissed.

Dear Nobody,

      I have kissed nobody, or at least not in the way I think they mean. I just don't want to go throwing my kisses around to just anybody so if I kiss nobody it is better in the long run for me not getting a broken heart.

always hard to hold, so letting go ain't easy

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Twenty-Two. Someone you want to give a second chance to.

Dear you.

I know we haven't been close to each other in the last little while but I wish we were. I know things will never go back to how they use to be but that's okay too. Sometimes when something is given up better things will come out of it.

There are so many things that I want to tell you that I haven't and so many things that I want to ask you but am too scared to. I know you may never see this but I hope you do. Even if you commented anonymously and said something that only we know, I would know that I could say everything that I want. 

So maybe I want to give you a second chance. But I also hope that you will give me a second chance too.
From your (ex?) Best friend (?)

if everything goes wrong keep singing this song

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Twenty-One. Someone you judged by their first impression.

Dear Brandi

       I guess I kinda judged you on your first impression seeing as you were my grade 6 buddy when I was in grade 2. Well I guess I thought you were really cool because I remembered you from then when we met again. And I was totally right but you were also a lot cooler than what I thought too.

       You have become a Godly woman I look up to with great respect and are one of my mentor's who I feel like I can come to with any problem whatsoever and you will give me an answer full of wisdom and love. You also supply good laughs :) 

        So I guess my first impression of you wasn't bad or wrong but it was far narrower than our relationship now is like. Thanks for being there for me.

In Love,

forget and not slow down than gather regret

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Twenty. The one that broke your heart the hardest.

Dear Boy,

      If we were going out my heart would have been smashed into tiny little fragments that would be unable to be glued back together completely for a long time. If I had known every little thing about you it would have crushed me so hard that I could no longer breathe as I was floating in space trying to find some oxygen.

       As it is, we never went out and so you never really broke my heart and so that is that. :)


Tuesday, 6 July 2010

again, racing through my brain

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Nineteen. Someone that pesters your mind - good or bad.

Dear Swiss Chalet guy,

      Yes you pester my mind. Gah. You are pretty cute though so that's okay. Minus that hideous "mom" tattoo on your arm. But the first time I saw you working there and I was checking you out and totally didn't notice you were looking at me until it was too late to make it unobvious was pretty funny. And you laughed after :) And then the next time I went in and there you were and I was trying not to be obvious this time when I looked at you but you kept looking at me.And when we left you were still looking. It made my heart glad. 

The next time you weren't there and all I can say is that I hope you haven't quit. Because I really actually want to talk to you. Until next time (if you haven't quit by then).


Monday, 5 July 2010

the restless soul is searching

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Eighteen. The person you wish you could be.

Dear Jesus,

      I wish I could be more like you. But I fail so hard and miserably. You know that but you always pick me back up time and time again (thank you) and tell me to keep trying. I will because you believe in me and love me despite what I am because you know me better than I will ever know myself. Thank you.

losing ground and gaining speed, i've lost myself

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Seventeen. Someone from your childhood.

Dear Dustin S.,

      I don't think you will ever read this because I didn't write out your last name. Your last name is so weird anyways but I remember how to spell it so HA. We always called each other by our last names which was kind of cool since no one else did that ever. I knew you from the beginning of grade 5 to near the end of 7. You were my best guy friend that whole time and, in elementary we would hang out almost every day at least once, usually during lunch recess. I don't remember if it was in grade 5 or 6 but you broke your arm or something and had it in a sling but you still played catch with me and were pretty dang good. That's probably one of my favourite memories of you. That and Nick B. and you would sometimes call me Beefaroni. Real lame guys.

One time someone told me that we should totally go out and at the time I wanted to gag because you were my best guy friend and I couldn't see you that way. Now I wonder why I didn't because you made me laugh and were cute and liked hanging out with me. Oh man, how embarrassing. I really hope you never read this haha.

I don't think you will and secretly that makes me sad. I can't find you on facebook and I wonder what happened to you. One time I think I saw you at the Hangers in Capilano mall but I couldn't tell and I was with a friend so I didn't want to run over and see. One of my few regrets, though it doesn't really matter. I just hope you didn't land yourself in jail. And if you did you are dumb and you are so much better than that kinda crap. Or at least you were when I knew you. Indeed. I just wish I knew what happened to you, at least to set my mind at ease.


Saturday, 3 July 2010

there's no one in town I know

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Sixteen. Someone that's not in your state/country.

Dear Ian & Danielle,

      I wish I could have written this on day nine instead because it would make way more sense. But you are also not in the same province so it is all good.

      I am super excited to finally talk to you guys for the first time in my life! I don't even know what to say but I am thankful for facebook actually being useful for once. I hope I get to know you guys better and that we can meet someday. It is so crazy cool/weird how many interests we have in common. Super crazy! Anyways, like I said I hope we can meet one day but until then it is good just meeting you guys and learning how ya'll are.


Friday, 2 July 2010

waiting in my room for you, you were waiting for me too

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Fifteen. The person you miss most.

Dear Marty,

      You are indeed the person I miss most at this time. Because we haven't seen each other in like two years (give or take 20 minutes. That doesn't count). And we obviously have each grown so much since then and we just need to talk and get to hear about each other's lives. Coffee and two days in August.

Love McFly.

Thursday, 1 July 2010

do you see me? because i think i see you.

30 Day Letter Challenge Day Fourteen. Someone you've drifted away from.

Dear Kristina,

       What happened to us? We were best friends from kindergarten and now we barely talk to each other. Which is pretty bad since we go to the same school. When you changed schools after grade 7 I felt so lost and it was so hard for me. Probably because I lost such a good friend/walking buddy/project partner. I loved how we would have our 'fights' which were nothing more than small bickers. And how we would always have to be partnered with Coleen because we were the only ones nice enough to let her join our group. The way that we would do each others homework (you got science and math and me, I got social and LA) it was good times.

I know that you have your own set of friends and I have mine and we didn't have any classes because you are doing a B.Sc and I'm a B.A and I was already taking 200/300 level courses. But maybe, if we're lucky, we'll have a class together. It would be pretty rad.

Anyways you'll always remain a good friend of mine even if we hang out 0% of the time.
