Prompt 1: Message in a Bottle

“While at the beach you decide to write a message in a bottle. What would it say. Who would you like to find it?”

To a stranger:

If you are reading this – hell, if you can read this – then this message in a bottle actually worked. I don’t know who you are nor do you know me. But I hope whoever you are, you find some comfort in these words. Or you could find them meaningless. I want you to know that you are not alone. You might be going through a rough time right now. You might want to say fuck the world because you keep getting knocked down. But don’t. It will be better. It will. I promise. And yes, I sound like a Hallmark card but I mean it. It will get better. This right here, whatever you are going through is just a bump in the road. Things will get better. You’ll see. So just hang in there. Just breathe. Just live. Take it one step at a time and see what happens. it might surprise you. And another thing, I know that you are a stranger but even though I don’t know you, I love you.
