Love the life you live

A poem about embracing your mess

You’re alive today, isn’t it grand? You’re ALIVE today, give yourself a big hand. There were so many people who weren’t given a chance, to wake up with a smile on their face and say I have one more chance.

You’re ALIVE today, so allow yourself to smile, to feel the air in your lungs, to walk that extra mile.

Feel the wind on your face, listen to the birds chirping too, smell the sweet air around you touch the people you love; hold them near, use all your senses and be happy you are here.

You were given this chance, don’t take it for granted, embrace the beautiful mess that is yours, and be grateful for it all, there are so many people who didn’t wake up to fall. Falling is a part of life, we can’t get away without stumbling once or twice, but think of what a privilege it is to do so, isn’t it nice?

Choose to dance even if you can’t, feel the rhythm of life move you, and embrace the energy running right through you. There are so many out there that can’t walk and are wishing they could, so feel the rhythm, and be happy that you can move at all even if it’s tough for you.

Allow yourself to let go, and be who you are. Be silly, be stupid, be weird, and laugh at the mess that you’re, there are so many who weren’t given that chance today, consider yourself blessed, even if at times you may feel stressed.

Life can seem tough at times, but when you’re grateful you will see, that life is a privilege not given to everyone, and how beautiful it can be.

Voices

A poem about our inner voice, and how it can heal.

The voices you choose can save your life, the voices you choose can change your life.

The voices you choose can cause you harm, make you feel sad, or can give you new hope, even during those times when you feel at the end of your rope.

The words you speak to yourself will cause you to feel down or will allow you to keep your chin up when life feels unsound. These words can sting, or they can sing, but most importantly they can heal.

So, If you continue to look up, even when you’re down, your life will start to turn right around. It may not happen fast, it may take some time, but the voices you choose will make you begin to feel just fine.

Each new day will bring something different, so allow yourself to speak; feel and let go, allowing you the room you need to listen to the voices that will help you grow.

life can be either messy, or it can be sublime, but when you choose to talk to yourself with the right voices, life will seem less complicated, and in the end, reassure you that life is not  terrible all the time.

Great Friends Are Forever, Life Is Not

Don’t forget your friends when; you become rich, if you become poor, if you start a new career, or end one. Don’t fail to remember your friends if you’re happy, if you’re lonely, if you’re excited, or you’re sad. Because a true friend won’t forget you, and if you’re a true friend you won’t forget them too.

Don’t ignore your friends even if you’re married, dating, falling in love, or falling out of it. Don’t ignore your friends, if they forget to text you back, miss your Birthday, or don’t mention it even if they didn’t forget. Don’t close your eyes to your friends if have a minor disagreement, or any disagreement at all. One day they will need you, or you will need them too, and because you are holding a grudge, you are taking away the only way for them to reach you.

Friends, whether you consider them family or not, are a gift to have. Choose to focus on the gift they are to you instead of holding a grudge because they couldn’t call, text or be there for you, even when they wanted to.
Just like you, they may be going through something similar, or at times worse, so reach out to them even if you’re hurt. Because friends like yours, and mine, and all of us combined, are only here on this earth for a limited amount of time. So, reach out, call, text, or write to them, and keep them close to you .

I believe in you. Believe in yourself too.

When you believe in yourself there is nothing you can’t do, when you believe in yourself you will develop the power to pull through. The world becomes larger, and clearer each day, and you start to develop the courage that you need to get you through even the darkest day. 

Your life may seem tough at times, and that’s okay, continue to believe in yourself and your abilities anyway. The challenges you face may seem so much harder, but when you believe in yourself, you will be able to handle them much smarter. 

So believe in yourself, and know that I believe in you too, know that there is someone out there who is thinking of you. There are people out there who want you to succeed and do your best, there are people out there who believe in you, and want you to pass the test. 

This test of yours is life, and you can get through, just by believing in yourself and all that you can do. 

Love Yourself

A Poem about Love

Love is hope; love is peace, love is happiness and joy. Love is warmth, love is a comfort, love is safety, and it is calm. Love is loud, love is exciting, love is eye-opening and is also uplifting.

Love is only present; it doesn’t think of the past, it allows you to live now, and create the life that you want, love is the opposite of fear, it lets you push through, it has no judgment, it lets you be you.

When we choose to love the world will seem clear when we choose to love, all that we fear will disappear. Our eyes will open up to new miracles surrounding us, and the world becomes bigger just knowing what’s around us.

Be kind to yourself, and be helpful to others, show them love, but most importantly show yourself love to because the love that you have for yourself will give you the strength to pull through.

So choose to love life, all you’re and what you have. There is only one chance at it, choose to love it choose to feel it, choose to be open to it each day.
