Husband’s Letter to Neglected Wife

Husband’s Letter to Neglected Wife

Husbands’s Letter to Neglected Wife is about a man’s realization of his wife’s loneliness when he failed to make her feel important, wanted, and loved, and his willingness to make amends for it. To My Dear Wife, Your sudden outburst about feeling unloved a moment ago left me shocked and disbelieving. Me, neglecting you? Absolute rubbish! I work so hard to give you a comfortable life, I hardly have the time to sit close to you when you ask me. You talk about having quiet walks and relaxed conversations with me but I’m always too busy to give in. Oh, I’m sorry that must have meant you wanted to spend more time with me. When I regale you with my personal accomplishments, you’d always cheer me on. I remember you were sharing to me about winning a contest or something, then I  had to make an important phone call and forgot all about it and never asked you. You were unusually quiet then but I was too busy celebrating myself. I should have celebrated your moment with you just like we used to. You’d often ask me how you looked and I’d say good as ever without giving a glance. I remember I used to shower you with praises and compliments, you’d always say I was exaggerating but then you’d look so happy and glowing. I forgot the last time I seriously took the time to look at you just because. Do you love me? Do you really, really love me? You seem to ask those questions more frequently these past months. You ought to know the answer to...
Apology Letter to Life

Apology Letter to Life

    Apology Letter to Life is a letter asking for forgiveness from a gift that ought to be treasured rather than taken for granted. Dear Life, A lot of times I have taken you for granted, sometimes I dislike you, and one time I even threatened to end you. But today, faced with the smallest but very real possibility of losing you sooner than expected, I realized I am not ready at all to let you  go. I apologize for not treating you right and treasuring you as I should. Forgive me for being impatient when things don’t go my way. I know I easily get frustrated and curse to high heavens when challenges are thrown my way. Looking back now, I concede that everything just happened at the right place and time according to your perfect rhythm. I just needed to do what was needed and flow with you. I would have saved a lot of energy and enjoyed more of you instead of giving you deadlines to meet. I’m sorry for being ungrateful. You have given me so much opportunities for happiness and fulfillment but I seldom took them and blamed you. Yes, it was easier to put the burden on you because you never answered me back. Maybe you did but I was too busy counting my disappointments to notice. I could have used the time more wisely by thanking you for my successes, no matter how small. That would have given me more space to grow. Let me apologize for dwelling too long on regrets instead of counting my blessings which far outweighed them....
Letter of Teacher to Graduates

Letter of Teacher to Graduates

  Letter of Teacher to Graduates is a heartfelt message of a mentor who hopes that she has done good in her role of molding students to attain their maximized potential. To My Dear Graduating Students, Looking at most of you now, I honestly don’t know whether to feel sad or happy knowing that this may be the last time I will see you as I’ve always known you – young, carefree, and forever dreaming. As you enter the more complicated stage of adulthood, I can only hope that I played a role in preparing each of you for it. I have always known that my duty as a teacher goes beyond academics and I thank all of you for allowing me at some point to be your parent, your model, your friend. The joy that I feel in seeing you graduate to another phase of your life is indescribable. The pain of parting is sometimes unbearable especially to those of you who made me part of your school family. A teacher’s role is not to hamper the development of her students but rather to pave the way for it. Soon, some of you will be doctors saving lives and healing the sick.  Others will be lawyers who will assist people in their quest for justice. A handful will be building infrastructure and houses to benefit the country and the people. I distinctively remember at least two of you aiming for the show business limelight and I have no doubts that you will make it.  For all of you, I will be your most ardent cheerleader, whatever vocation you...
Thank You My Child for Your Unconditional Love

Thank You My Child for Your Unconditional Love

  Thank You My Child for Your Unconditional Love is a letter to all children who love without condition or question. These children are the blessed souls who provide the needed balance for all the maneuverings done in the name of love. Thank you my child for your unconditional love. Your love gives me constancy in a world where nothings seems to be permanent and lasting. It is like a breathe of fresh air in a room that has been staled by broken promises. Your trusting eyes tell me you believe in me in spite of my imperfections. You may never really know how many times you have saved me from spiraling downwards, never to come back, just because you made me feel you believe in me. With you, I need not think of strategies in winning the game of love. You ask the reason for my tears and wipe them, very much in the same way I do for you when you cry. You just sit close when I don’t answer and wait, then gently ask me if I want to play. When I say no, you tell me to sleep and rest and say I’ll feel better when I wake up. It was as if I was the child and you were the parent. It was both comforting and amusing. There is not a shade of embarrassment when you say you love me. In fact, there is even a trace of defiance in declaring a love for someone like me who I admit can be so unlovable at times. That very defiance shames me during those times when...
Dear Future

Dear Future

Dear Future is a letter addressed to the future which usually brings mixed emotions of excitement and unease mainly because of the fact that no one really knows what it will bring.   Dear Future, There was a time in my life that I was so angry at you. Year in and year out, I dreamt, believed, and hoped, but you have dashed my hope so many times, I was almost convinced you were against me. Then suddenly it dawned on me that it wasn’t you. I realized I wasn’t doing anything concrete with my dreams. I was mouthing the words but wasn’t putting in the required action to make things happen. I was too afraid to fail so I ended failing just the same by doing nothing. This time it will be different. The braver choices I made this year made me realize that I can go beyond my perceived limitations, limitations which I have put on myself and stunted my personal growth. I found out that it’s the scariest choices that end up becoming the most worthwhile. You no longer scare me Future for now I know you represent opportunities that are yet to come. In fact, you excite me, you challenge me, and you fill me with great expectations. I feel that everything is possible, so come on Future, bring it on! Letter Writer   EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE 2015 GIVEAWAY For the longest time, I have always been a great fan of using daily planners. I feel more organized and prepared seeing my plans, tasks, and reminders written down on a beautiful and handy planner. Days...
Letter to My Second and Last Love

Letter to My Second and Last Love

    Letter to My Second and Last Love gives proof that there are indeed second chances at love and that they can provide the promise of forever. To My Last Love, While most would write to their first loves, I now write to you my second and last love. I’d often regret why you were not the first one who made my heart beat with so much intensity. For that was how I’ve always imagined it to be, to be swept off my feet by just one true love and to live happily ever after. But that was not how it was meant to be. For some reason, you arrived two years late into my life, not even in a romantic fashion. My attention was caught by another and I suffered for my haste. But you watched over me as a friend without me knowing. It would take several more years of me hurting alone and you watching over me on the sidelines, and then there you were. I must have known at the back of my mind that you will play a big role in my life but I dared not hope. It would have been too much to bear if I was wrong once again. But then you made me feel there was reason to hope and to love again. It would be a lot more romantic I know if I were to write here that you are my first and last love but we know better. The first love thing has never been an issue to you. It is reassuring to hear you say that...
