DAYS 24, 25, 26, 27, AND 28.

Another one of these jammed-up posts, just because I have *extra* time. :)

On this day you write a letter to:


DAY 24: THE PERSON THAT GAVE YOU YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY

It was such a fleeting moment. It was, for me, the perfect illustration of “short and sweet”. You came up to me and stood in front of me, smiling. You hesitated for a while, but then you grabbed me in your arms, and hugged me. I thought it’ll be just like one of those awkward hugs that people share, but no, you proved me wrong. At first it was awkward, and then you pulled me closer and hugged me tighter. If you continued to do it longer, I would’ve had a hard time breathing. That’s how tight it was. And I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

After that, every hug someone gave me reminded me of you. Maybe unconsciously, I was comparing your hug to theirs. But you know what? No one has ever outdone you. You were the best “hugger”, out of all of them. Even after a couple of years later, I can still feel your arms wrapped around me, like it was only yesterday. I can still vividly remember everything that happened during that moment. That was unforgettable. I hope someday we could do it again. :)

DAY 25: THE PERSON YOU KNOW THAT IS GOING THROUGH THE WORST OF TIMES

I don’t actually have a certain person in mind, so I’m just gonna dedicate this letter to everyone who can relate.

Life’s a bitch. To survive, you just have to fight back. Be bitchier, if there’s even a term. But never give up, never surrender. I know it’s cliche, but it’s the truth. No one ever wins by giving up. Whatever it is that you’re going through, no matter how small or huge your problem is, there is always a solution. The trick is, you just have to find it for yourself, because no one’s gonna find it for you. You have to rely on yourself and not on others, because in the end, you have no one but yourself. You are your own savior, your own hero. But in some cases, you also can be your own enemy. Never let that happen. Straighten your act, and for sure, you’ll escape unscathed.

There’s always hope. You just have to find it in you to believe (that there is). Go on, fight, soldier. :)


DAY 26: THE LAST PERSON YOU MADE A PINKY PROMISE TO

I can’t remember what we agreed upon; all I can remember is your goofy face while we were joining our two pinkies together. Hahaha! But whatever it is, I know it’s settled. You know me, I never break pinky promises. Crazy as it may seem to other people, I take pinky promises seriously. Really.

We may have other pinky promises to swear, but know in your heart I’ll never break one, no matter how big or small the matter is. I’ll always have your back, and I know you always have mine too. I got your back, boy. :)

DAY27: THE FRIENDLIEST PERSON YOU KNEW FOR ONLY ONE DAY

This letter goes out to all the people I had an encounter with, who were very accommodating and friendly and warm and all things nice. :)

Never stop being like that. You don’t know how many people you make happy by being so. Always remember that. Kudos to all of you!


DAY 28: SOMEONE THAT CHANGED YOUR LIFE

If you didn’t come into my life, everything would’ve been exactly how I wanted it to. But no, you just have to come barging right in. It’s unfair. It may have been a long time ago, but sometimes when I think about it, everything just seems so… fresh.

You had a big part in ruining my life. You did. Thanks to you, nothing will ever be the same. All those pent-up wishes, they’ll never come true. All because of you.

But you made me stronger. Maybe even better. So, thank you. Thank you. Someday, I’ll learn to accept everything, wholly. But for now, let me be.
