Open Letter Friday - 5/1

Polymer Clay Snails has a MeMe called Open Letter Friday.

Write a letter, to anyone. Sister, parent, crazy driver, or child who thinks you have not done what they are trying to get past you.


Dear Self,

What would you do if you were dying?

The words…. “You have cancer”…. “There is nothing more that we can do” …. “You have less than a year.” are said everyday… What if they were said to you?

How about things in your life left unfinished or unsaid?

Would you want to “wait” on anything?

Would you miss a chance to make sandwiches and watch a movie with the kids instead of making a huge meal?

Would you stop yourself from eating that cheese because… “It’ll go to my hips”?

Would you tell Kara to “hold on” while you made your bed or cleaned your room?

Or would you sit down and watch that viral video she wants you to see, and laugh with her?

Would you rush Ashlyn along with her story because you have a post to write?

Would you spend your time speaking poorly of people, or instead, find something wonderful to say to those around you?

Live like you were dying….

What demands would you make to those you love? Would you request their time by your side or want to be left alone?

Would you finally sky dive?

Get over your fear of sharks (because what else do you have to lose?)

Get married again?

Would you finally backpack through Europe or spend the night in a wine villa in Italy?

Why aren’t you? Why don’t you realize that we are on borrowed time from the moment we accept the first breath into our tiny lungs?

Take the step… the leap….

Live like you were dying…

Dare to love….
