My act of self-love this evening is some inspiration poetry to help empower the woman I am and the woman I am becoming. These are some of the treasures I found. I have found that self-love is sharing love.
She loved life and it loved her right back. She celebrated her passion. She listened to her heart above all other voices. She celebrated her wisdom. She pursued her dreams instead of small realities. She celebrated her priorities. She saw every ending as a new beginning. She celebrated her resiliency. She discovered that her real measurements had nothing to do with numbers or statistics!!! She celebrated her self-esteem. She was kind, loving and patient with herself. She celebrated her tenderness. She woke up one day and threw away all the excuses. She celebrated her accountability. She had a way of turning obstacles into opportunities. She celebrated her magic. She added so much to being human. She celebrated her presence. She designed a life she lived. She celebrated her joy. She made the world a better place. She celebrated her!!
