Throw Back Thursday: Dear Life by Meghan Quinn

Posted on

“First impressions are meaningless, because not everyone can be on point all the time, and yet, one bad day can ruin us.” 

“It’s easy to observe when you sit back and listen, if you truly listen to someone rather than preparing to respond to what they’re saying. It’s the difference in creative listening and reactive listening.” 

“Be kind. Be Courageous. Do good. Own you. And Prove your existence.” 

“Life isn’t some walk in the park where you can make wishes on dandelions. Life is work. Life is a journey of triumphs and sorrows. Of successes and failures. Of learning experiences and growing opportunities. You can’t sit back and expect different results when you’re not doing anything to change.” 

“Sometimes, as humans, we don’t know how to handle the loops of the roller coaster life takes us on, so we silently turn to our vices for support; drinking, drugs, binge eating. There is no physical reason to do so, no actual justification for our actions, besides wanting to temporarily dull the ache within our bruised and brittle souls.” 

Dear Life,

It’s New Years Eve and time for a resolution. Time for decision and self-discovery. After all, isn’t that what starting over, in a new year, is all about? Forgiveness. Clean slates? Finding beauty in heartbreak and pain, and finding yourself along the way?

We hope so.

Because we’ve immersed in the anonymously published Dear Life program, designed to help us step outside of our comfort zones and start anew. Forced to face obstacles and relinquish our demons we’ll come together–or fall apart– to prove our existence:

Hollyn: The perpetually hurt
Daisy: The sheltered and naïve
Jace: The athlete with a heart of gold
Carter: The bitter and pained dreamer

Win big or lose it all, we’re at a crossroads in our lives; four strangers meeting in the middle. Do we have what it takes to use this one chance and start over? Or will we fall apart?
