To the people who love you for you


Quote of the day: 
I’m always thinking about what I’m missing. Even when I’m happy with what I have.
-Alyson Noel


Do you ever feel happy
Being around someone
Do you ever feel secure
Knowing that they care.

Do you ever laugh at yourself
And not take yourself too seriously
Do you ever look in the mirror
And think, I am beautiful.

Do you ever feel contentment
With all that you have
Do you ever show kindness
To all that you come across.

Do you ever feel positive
About your passion and dreams
Do you ever say thank you
To the people who love you for you.

Peace. Love. Light*

  9. I love this poem--it nudges us toward focusing on the good in our lives, remembering the importance of each act of kindness, and toward gratitude for the things we have rather than resentment over the things we do not. Beautiful. Thank you.

  17. The second stanza struck a chord. I think we should all have moments when we laugh at ourselves...even at the mistakes we think were silly. Nice poem.

  21. How beautiful! And laughing at myself is one thing I'm completely at ease with. I'm not giving anyone a chance to do it before me if I can help. Even in terrible mistakes. Life I believe is an assignment and correction process. Lol!
