A Love Letter For When You Want to Give Up

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post by Kandice Cole.


Dear Love,

Can I tell you what I see when I look at you?

I see brilliance.

I see lusciousness.

I see sun rays.

I see love.

Yes, in the midst of chaos, tension, and setbacks, I see all of this in you.

I know you are running your race and getting tired. You wonder if you will ever find your stride or discover your unique rhythm. The dawn sometimes seems clouded by the darkness. The nights seem to go on forever, yet there is a light.

You are that light.

It is burning within you.

You have hit your stride and are in your rhythm.

Your very life is one perfect symphony.


So what now? How do you keep this in the front of your heart when it feels like you want to throw in the towel?

First things first…


Let it out and let it go.

The setbacks, the failures, the mistakes, the guilt.

Let it move through you and beyond you.

Allow the tension to run off of you.

Allow the Universe to do its magic.

Second thing is: always remember. Remember that all you have to do is be. You don’t have to struggle to become anything because everything you need is already within you.

And most of all braveheart, take another step.

Breathe, cry, scream, then take another step.

Your evolution and your blossoming is making the world a better place.

It is contributing to life here on Earth and your contribution is so important.

Read this letter often when you feel that the next step is outside of your grasp.

Push on, in whatever way you can, and shine brighter than the brightest star.

May you feel every single spark of love that surrounds you always.  

May you find relief in love’s embrace.  

Thank you for giving it all you got and adding more light to the world.
