Open Letter To The Strongest Person In My Life

Open Letter To The Strongest Person In My Life

I see you and I love you


Hey. This is a letter to let you know that someone sees you. You may feel that your struggle is all your own, but I'm here to tell you that I see you. I see you making the best of every situation and putting your problems aside to help other people. I see you.

You are one of the strongest people I have ever met. You have bad days. You have moments of weakness. You have to fight to keep going. And you do all of this without faltering. You smile and go out into the world and work and go to classes and I know this isn't easy. It's likely Hell. And not everybody could do it. But not everybody is you. Not everyone has the strength and determination that you do.

I also want to take this time to tell you that I love you, and I will always be here for you. I know you may feel like a burden or that you don't want to bother other people with your struggle. And that's just another show of your true strength. But I want you to know that you could never burden or bother me. I would happily share your burden in any way necessary. Whether it's tears and ice cream or going out and having an amazing night. Nothing you could ask would be too much because I know you would always do the same for me.

I also want to make clear what an inspiration you are to me. You are brave, tenacious, fearless, determined, and empowered. You are beautiful and successful in spite of your struggle and that is something to be admired. I know nothing will ever stop you from doing reaching your goals and that inspires me every day.

Just know in your heart that you are loved, appreciated, and most importantly seen.


Your friend.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
