Surrender: An Open Letter To Myself

Surrender to the events that you can’t control.

Traumatic and depressing things have happened in the last year of your life. Could you have done anything differently for a better outcome?


Did you make the most of every opportunity – every gifted minute that took place before losing a piece of your heart?


You stayed true to the values that make up the kind and loving person you are. You placed your family first ..every…single…time.

Remember that you placed love first.

Surrender to your desire of forcing situations to happen in your way.

Time and time again you have seen with your own eyes that the timing of everything you are going through is happening for a reason. You may not know it yet, but this is preparing you for the rest of your life. Something bigger. One day you’ll look back with an understanding of why things needed to happen the way they did.

Surrender to gratitude.

Look around and revel in all of the people, places and things that make up your life. List-off the reasons why you decide to wake up every morning, get dressed and live for today.

Even on the days you feel like starting over with a clean slate. Remember that this doesn’t mean you don’t love your life the way it is. Nor does it mean that you wouldn’t give your last breath to see the people you love happy. Understand that sometimes, after long periods of being selfless, we as humans, yearn to be a little selfish.

After all, you’re spending the rest of your life with yourself. You need to feel these feelings to find comfort and peace in your daily routines.

Surrender to your emotions.

Cry. Let it out. Feel the pain you have gone through. You are not being dramatic. You are re-establishing yourself as a new person who can no longer turn to someone you’ve turned your entire life. Put aside the mentality that feelings are for the weak.

Dealing with your emotions is for the STRONG.

Because if you can feel your heart shattering into a thousand pieces and are still capable of living for the present moment, then you are courageous.

You dare to face emotions most people push aside. You look at fear and pain and say,

“You will not destroy me”
