Open Letter of Gratitude



To Everyone,

I'm writing to express my Gratitude to all of you. No matter who you are, if we have met or not, big or small, pink, yellow or purple, this letter is for you. I want to thank you for being here, on this earth and having this experience along side the rest of us. Without all of you I would not be the person I am today. I want to thank everyone who I have ever come across in my journey in this lifetime. To those of you who tried to bring me down, thank you, for you made me a stronger person. To those who tried to make me feel small and who made fun of me, thank you, you taught me what it felt like to be insecure and feel like I'm "less than." To those who laughed with me through the good times, bad times, and downright crazy times, thank you, you showed me what it was like to be joyful in any situation. To those who tried to teach me lessons in life, thank you, for you gave me knowledge about the world around me and helped me navigate it with a few less road bumps. To those who showed me kindness, thank you, for you taught me how so share and care for everyone around me. To those who made my life really suck in school, thank you, you showed me that I can live through the hardest of times and still come out an amazing person with a smile on my face. To those who inspire me, thank you, you shared with me your adventures, pains, joys, successes, wins and failures and through all of these you in turn taught me that the most important thing is that I at least try. To those who touched my heart and shared love with me, thank you, I never new true love and it's magical powers and you taught me a whole new world in which I could live in full of ever lasting kisses and hugs that feel like they go down to the bone. To those who I share my time with, thank you, for you make every day and day to remember and I am so very grateful for that. To those who think I'm crazy and way to happy, thank you, for you remind me of where I once was and to never lose what I have found. To those who bullied me, thank you, because I now know that it was your insecurities that lead you to do it and not mine and I hope you can one day find only joy and happiness like I have found. To those who have ever helped me, thank you, you brought me multiple steps froward to where I am today and without your help I may not have made it. To anyone who has ever shared a moment with me, thank you, I will always cherish them for life is just a string of moments laced together. To anyone I have ever inspired, thank you, for my joy comes from bringing others joy, happiness and inspiring you to create more for others.

To Everyone, Thank You. You all are important people to someone, somewhere, and all of our lives intertwine in so many ways we would not be able to keep track. You, in all of your joy and glory, is what makes this world go round and I am so grateful to be having this experience with each and every one of you. We all have lessons to learn and to teach but remember the most important one; life is about joy and happiness. So live life to the fullest, enjoy every minute of it, and try to share it with as many people as you can.

With Gratitude,
Calan.
