Last year, a couple of blog friends posted these little snippets to the universe and I thought it was such a great idea, because don’t we all have something to put out into the universe sometimes? I sure do, so I am reviving this post idea and encourage you to leave your snippets to the universe in the comments.
Dear November – it would be terrific if you could slow the heck down. I want to enjoy you, relish in your presence, and also get a lot of things done this month. Only 6 weeks until Christmas and I am freaking out a tad bit. Please and thank you.
Dear Coffee – thank you for giving me something to look forward to when I get up every morning.
Dear Anonymous – I really don’t know where your head is when you get into the car at this time of year when it’s dark outside and on top of that, raining, but you must be very preoccupied with other things, so much that you forget to turn your headlights on. Trust me, you’re not the only one, I’ve seen plenty of people driving around in the dark without their lights lately and I am just so afraid that someone might hit you because they really can’t see you. So, please do me a favor and turn on your lights, m’kay?
Dear iPhone 5s – you are 3 years old now and you’ve really been a great phone. You were the right size, I could easily use you with one hand, and you fit into my jeans pocket. You’ve never let me down and you held up superbly, even though I (unintentionally!) dropped you a few times. I am going to be sad to let you go (eventually), but I have to say that your battery has become a bit temperamental and it’s been a hassle having to rely on an external battery and/or outlet all the time. I am not quite ready to upgrade to your newer version (mainly because of the missing headphone jack – why, Apple?), but I think soon might be the time. Can you hold up just a bit longer?
Dear body – thank you for being healthy and strong and (mostly) willing to do what I ask you to. You fall asleep easily, you haven’t given me any aches and pains, and you generally happily support my active lifestyle. I know, sometimes I am not kind. I don’t always drink enough water (working on it every day!), I sometimes torture you with not-so-healthy (but yummy) food, and sometimes I don’t take the warm up and cool down before and after my workouts seriously (also working on it), but I promise, I try to not take you for granted, ever.
Dear America – please, can everything go back to normal after election day next week? I am so sick and tired of politics these days and mostly upset about the fact that it’s not about issues anymore, but about who can smear the other candidate(s) the most. I hope that those of you who are registered and eligible to vote will do so. If you are still undecided who to vote for (in which case I have to ask ‘who are you?’), you can do a quick check on ISideWith.com, answer some questions and see which candidates aligns best with your values. While I strongly hope for a certain outcome of the election (because I am very scared what happens if the opposite is the case), I do hope we can return to a bit of normalcy in the media and get more reports on the things that really matter around the country and the world.
What letters would you like to put out into the universe today?!
