Yesterday was not my favorite day. Don't get me wrong; the Stevie Nicks concert was above and beyond what I hoped it would be (and I will blog all about it once I have my photos ready!), but prior to that 7:30pm start...yesterday was not my favorite day. And because it was so much of a bummer day (again, not counting Stevie!) I woke up this morning feeling not very willing to face the day. Which is, of course, the worst possible way to start any day.
And then I stumbled upon this story (via PostSecret on Twitter) about a hand written letter by iggy pop in response to a struggling fan. I stumbled upon this letter and I was given a bit of encouragement; a reminder to take a breath and regroup. To acknowledge my own strength and have faith that the Universe is always working in my favor so long as I remain committed to thoughts and goals that are loving, kind and full of gratitude. Hiccups and nay-sayers be damned; I am worthy of an awesome life filled with awesome people. I refuse to settle for anything less.
So naturally I wanted to share it with all of you :)
thankyou for your gorgeous and charming letter, you brighten up my dim life. i read the whole fucking thing, dear. of course, i'd love to see you in your black dress and your white socks too. but most of all i want to see you take a deep breath and do whatever you must to survive and find something to be that you can love. you're obviously a bright fucking chick, w/ a big heart too and i want to wish you a (belated) HAPPY HAPPY 21st b'day and happy spirit. i was very miserable and fighting hard on my 21st b'day, too. people booed me on the stage, and i was staying in someone else's house and i was scared. it's been a long road since then, but pressure never ends in this life. 'perforation problems' by the way means to me also the holes that will always exist in any story we try to make of our lives. so hang on, my love, and grow big and strong and take your hits and keep going.
all my love to a really beautiful girl. that's you laurence.
Seriously in love with this note.
