Extend a hand to yourself Helpful, tender and warm Giving yourself a high-five Doing yourself no harm
Raise both hands, disarm yourself Feel peace from hands to heart Show some enthusiasm Before your day can start
Hug both shoulders give a squeeze Close your eyes with a sigh Feeling your love with each breath Even if you cry
Entwine your fingers, press palms In gratitude for Having come this far While still wanting more
Give yourself a round of applause Feel the joy indeed Perhaps a pat on your shoulder May be all you need
Just a little piece about loving yourself, that it's ok to be your own best friend, to be accepting and tender toward oneself. Oscar Wild described loving ourselves as "the beginning of a lifelong romance".
