Don't worry about trying to change the world by yourself; that's a job for all of us. If you want to change something, try changing your world first. And even if it seems small, celebrate it. Because any change you can make is often the biggest change of all.
They come in a myriad of sizes, Their skin ranges beyond the rainbow of complexions, With hair graciously flowing amid an array of textures, They are beautiful as they are, For who they are, & what they represent.
Turning twenty two, A girl can forget everything she once knew, A birthday comes just once a year Some people revel in it, Whilst others hide it.
The day you celebrate You also mourn for the girl you once were As you realise you are not her anymore You may shed a tear As you say goodbye to yet another year
A year filled with heartbreak, love, friendship Life changing lessons Perhaps it was a year Where something truly amazing happened After twenty one years You realised your worth on this earth and put it into action
So take a second to shed a tear To raise a glass Because twenty one was really quite class Then look ahead because you never know twenty two could be your year.
A better day: Is feeling healthy, A positive thought, A kind word, A charitable deed, A friendly chat, Sharing laughter, Caressing a broken heart, Acquiring knowledge, Inspiring others, Celebrating nature’s beauty, And being touched by God's call to love!
I apologize to myself for holding myself back even though I know what I’m truly capable of I apologize to myself for making myself cry at night I apologize to myself for treating my body like a dumpsite for garbage instead of a temple highly regarded I apologize to myself for making myself smaller so that others can feel bigger I apologize to myself for choosing to see what’s lacking in me and not celebrating everything I have that makes me beautifully me I apologize to myself for speaking harsh words like: 𝘠𝘰𝘶’𝘳𝘦 𝘶𝘨𝘭𝘺 𝘠𝘰𝘶’𝘭𝘭 𝘯𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘪𝘵 𝘠𝘰𝘶’𝘳𝘦 𝘢 𝘧𝘢𝘪𝘭𝘶𝘳𝘦 But choose to tell other people: 𝘠𝘰𝘶’𝘳𝘦 𝘶𝘯𝘪𝘲𝘶𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘣𝘦𝘢𝘶𝘵𝘪𝘧𝘶𝘭 𝘠𝘰𝘶’𝘭𝘭 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘪𝘵 𝘠𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘧𝘢𝘪𝘭𝘶𝘳𝘦𝘴 𝘥𝘰𝘯'𝘵 𝘥𝘦𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 because you of all people know how it’s like to be the villain in your own story and don’t want others to feel the same. Oh, to wish well for others and not wish on my own stars first. . . I apologize to myself for giving love to others but not give that same love back to myself.
-- I will accept my apologies and forgive myself so that I may learn how to love myself properly
