Tonight I am writing not as Zoe
but as a messenger who was inspired
to simply open a blank page and begin typing.
I did not plan to write the words that will follow.
I even don’t know what those words will be yet.
I have no clue why it’s happening so suddenly.
But I know the force behind it
is one of Universal magnitude.
And with that, I am surrendering
and letting if flow through my fingers…
This message goes out to all people.
To the men and to the women,
To the young and to the old,
To the single and to the attached.
To the wealthy and to the poor,
To the black, white and yellow,
To the American and to the International,
To the Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist and Agnostic.
To the ones whose hearts were shattered,
To the ones who were cheated on,
To the ones who were betrayed
and to the ones who were disrespected.
To the ones who were underestimated,
To the ones who were taken for granted,
To the ones who were stripped from their dreams
and the ones who were told, they were not good enough.
To the ones who lowered their standards,
To the ones who accepted mediocrity,
To the ones who were physically abused
and to the ones who were mentally tortured.
To the ones who grew negative,
To the ones who became callused,
To the one who lived in disillusion
and to the ones who were left behind.
To the ones who were manipulated,
To the ones who were forced to change,
To the ones who sacrificed their happiness
and to the ones who were not accepted as they were.
To the ones who were disappointed time after time,
To the ones who were told to be realistic,
To the ones who gave their heart and soul away
and somewhere along the way, lost hope in true love.
This message is for YOU!
Lift your heads up!
Stand up straight!
Light the sparkle in your eyes!
You only went through those moments,
So that you can learn more about who you are,
Become stronger and more confident,
and begin valuing yourself.
You had to reach wholeness on your own,
Understand that true happiness comes from within,
and gain appreciation for those special people
You will meet down the road.
Each disappointment and let down was a test.
A test of your true character.
A test of your human resilience.
A test to see how bad you really want it.
Because you should never settle for less,
Let someone take advantage of you,
Allow another to strip you from your identity,
and rob you from your innate belief in true love.
Don’t listen, compare or adopt
the ideology of people who are
negative and cynical about love.
Let them believe what they want.
They don’t own your thoughts.
Their experiences are not your experiences.
Don’t let the past influence your present.
Let it go peacefully.
Live in the NOW.
You are a new man. You are a different woman.
You passed your tests.
You learned your lessons.
EMBRACE EVERY NEW OPPORTUNITY
THAT COMES YOUR WAY.
YOU NEVER KNOW.
IT MAY BE THE TRUE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE.
