I know it isn’t accurate, but it certainly feels this way at times. Especially considering there is a straight shot from the manufacturer to my home, on highways. But it needs to go to Sacramento, which is farther from the manufacturer than I am. I know there’s a logistical reason (like there aren’t that many trucks going on the aforementioned highways in that exact vector)… but I still wish it was going to end up here sooner.
My letter, for Derpy Day. If you somehow still have time, write a letter and submit it! This is a really awesome idea.
To the Unknown Recipient:
I do not know you, nor your trials, nor your talents. I know nothing of you, not even if you will read this through. But regardless, I wish to tell you, whoever it is you are, you are incredible. A human being, ungraspable in potential for good, it matters not what talents you have been given; use them. Use them to uplift your fellow man, to make something more of your life. No matter what you have been told, what lies have become believed, you have an infinite potential, a capacity to be more than the average person. Plato said justice was doing what you’re best at; now, go and be just! Live up to your fullest ability, do not accept anything less.
If you ever feel unloved, worthless, as if the world has conspired against you, know this; in you is this infinite potential, the capacity to craft worlds and bend space and time around you, with means to bring human hearts to your standard. You have the power of imagination, and that is the purest and most potent energy known to man. Harness that, and you can do the work of legends. Find your passion and live it, bringing it to its fullest extent. You are an energetic, complex, and unfathomably beautiful bundle of passion, imagination, and purpose- whether you have found it or not. Do something with that- don’t let your time be a waste.
Finally, no matter the circumstance, there is someone to love and someone to love you. I do not know you, but I wish for your absolute success, for you to be as brilliant as you deserve to be. Love is the basis of society- live with love for all at your heart, and that same love will be returned. We come closest to perfection in the simple act of love. Everyone deserves that love, whether friend or foe. Dispense it without fear, without discretion, come what may. It may be difficult, but it will be the most rewarding experience of a lifetime.
