Dear Inspiration

10 Oct

Dear Inspiration,

I haven’t known you that long and some may say that it’s wrong to get inspiration from someone like you, but I do. I wake up and want to be a better person. I go to bed thinking of ways to better myself. I think before I act, speak and judge people. I haven’t met someone who has made me evaluate how I live and make me want to change it. There is a lot that I need to work on and finally, I am able to have the motivation to work on it instead of putting it on the back burner.

Some see this as an unhealthy obsession, but if they really knew me, they would see that I honestly have needed a positive motivator in my life for a really long time. I don’t care about our differences or that society says we can’t be friends. People are people regardless of how we differ, and I choose who I am inspired from.

I went to church for the first time in years and you know what? I actually listened to what was said to me. When I went as a child, I would hear what they said and acknowledge that someone was speaking, but I never listened. It made perfect sense this time, and I actually have a desire to go back. I think a lot of that lies on you and how much you have taught me in the little time we’ve known each other.

My perceptions of religion and religious people were so skewed before. I thought religious people were know-it-all goody-two-shoes who thought of nothing else other than how bad people are who don’t have God in their life. I learned that people can have imperfections and still have God in their life. My eyes have been opened, and I thank you for being that silent motivator. You have no idea how much you’ve changed my outlook on life, and I don’t know if I will ever tell you. Not because I am ashamed or don’t think you should know. I just think that you already know. You see it when I look at you or hug you and you can see it by how I tell you that I am making an effort to change myself. I don’t need to tell you that you’re the reason why. It’s who you are. You spread the word of the Bible and just hope that someone will pick it up and begin to do the same. If they don’t, you carry on and continue to follow Him.

I am inspired. I am motivated. I am grateful to have met you. Even if you have only come into my life for now and we don’t see each other that much, I am grateful to have experienced your positive energy for as long as I did. If we remain friends, then I would only be so lucky. I sincerely hope I have had some positive effect on you, but just know that you mean a lot to me, and you’ve changed me more than I thought anyone ever could.

Thank you,
