I Hope



I hope adventure grabs you by the hand, and you invest both time and love into her.

I hope you genuinely fall in love with the journey and not just the dreams of getting there.

I hope you open your eyes to the things and people that illuminate the world around you.

I hope you take them by the hand and pull them close to you.

Every day—

every single waking day for the rest of your life, I hope you choose them.

The people and things that paint a smile across your face, and form storms of laughter in your stomach.

I hope you hold hands with your friends in public,

and tell them you love them in the most unique, and strangely beautiful ways.

I hope you send them random post-cards and trinkets along your journey.

I hope you find peace in a good book, good music, sunsets, compassion, intimacy, and kindness.

I hope you dine well, often. I hope you treat yourself to the finest cuisines.

I hope you find new ways to fall in love with yourself, and that you keep falling

Just like how I love you.

I feverishly hope you inspire others to do as much.

I hope you count your time in childhood minutes.

Swimming in eights, dancing in seconds.

I hope. Oh! how I hope, and please understand that I believe in you.

Just as I believe that I exist at this very moment, sitting on my sofa, writing you this letter of hope.

I hope you know I am always here. If you’ve had a bad week, I will sing you to sleep, and kiss your cheek, and assure you we will be alright.

And most importantly—

I hope that if one day someone with sad eyes pointed downward, and doubt written across their shoulders comes to you and asks, “What good is hope?”

I hope you will lift their chin, look them in the eye and say “Oh, hope, you see, blissful hope, has always got me through.”

For my friends, readers, and anyone I have ever said “I love you,” to. I hope you know those words are genuine when I say them. I wouldn’t say them if I didn’t mean them and I do not say them to everyone. I may not always reach out as often as I should, but please know that I think of you often, I care about you, and you are more important to me than you will ever know. I love you.

Love & life lessons,

    You speak of your love as if it is the greatest gift you can give to me, and it is a blessing in and unto itself. But it is not the greatest of gifts that you give. The greatest gift is allowing me close enough to love you back with a genuine and open heart. To trust me enough to get close enough to you that those words matter. To share the bad with the good because you love enough to give both honestly. I love you for who you are, but more importantly, for who I am because of you! You have my love without reservation! ❤🌹🙏🌹❤
