Dear Love Warrior community,
Today as a few of my acts of self-love I spent time in conversation with two women to whom I adore and love much. These conversations left me with a smile on my face, as well as my heart open and warm. When is the last time you gave yourself time to spend in conversation with someone you love? Tonight I continue my poems from she…
She is kind, loving and patient with herself. She celebrates her tenderness. She realized that she was missing a great deal by being sensible. She celebrates her spirit. She turned her cant’s into cans, and her dream into plans. She celebrates her goals. She ignored people who said it could not be done. She celebrated her independence. She discovered that she was the one she’d been waiting for. She celebrated her self-reliance. She walked in when everybody else walked out. She celebrated her friendship. She just had this way of brightening the day. She celebrated her radiance. She made the whole world feel like home. She celebrated her warmth. She decided to enjoy more and endure less. She celebrated her choices. She was an artist and life was her canvas. She celebrated her brilliance. She held her head high and looked the world straight in the eye. She celebrated her strength.
What do you celebrate about you?
