As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today I know this is AUTHENTICITY
As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend someone
As I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me
Today I call it “RESPECT “
As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was living me I grow
Today I call it “MATURITY “
As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstances,
I am in the right place at the right time and everything happens at the exactly right moment so I could be calm
Today I call it “Self-CONFIDENCE”
As I began to love myself
I quit steeling my own time, and I stopped designing a huge project for the future.
Today I only do what brings me you and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm
Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”
As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health-good, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first, I called this ATTITUDE a healthy egoism.
Today I know it is “LOVE FOR ONESELF “
As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and since I was wrong less of the time.
Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”
As I began to love myself, I refused to go living in the past and worry about the future. Now I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILMENT”
As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became valuable all.
Today I call this connection ” WISDOM OF THE HEART”
We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others.
Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born.
Today I know THAT IS LIFE
