Once upon a time many stages ago a woman wrote this poem to herself to cope with cruelty.
In order for her to move past the rage, she neutralized it with the power of her own kind words toward herself.
Read it when you need a boost or send it to someone you care about.
The day you were born, this earth became a brighter, happier, more peaceful place to be.
Your kindness spreads joy to all who cross your path, or hear of you.
You are an intelligent, good-humored, worthy person with extraordinary talents. Your confidence and relaxed nature make all who meet you want to be near you and get to know you further.
Your happiness stems from your ability to find peace within your own heart; to love without prejudice; to give without reservation; and to forgive those who offend and abandon you.
You are a courageous independent thinker with enormous power to negotiate, influence and organize. You know what you want in life and you go after it with integrity.
You walk with grace, talk with purpose and laugh with ease. There is no problem you cannot solve and no happiness you cannot achieve. You meet each day with enthusiasm; you work rigorously with vigor; and play with carefree delight. You challenge adversity and chuckle at your failures.
You eat and drink that which is good for you. You breathe slowly and sleep each night peacefully, with happy dreams of the past, present and future. You appreciate all that has been given you – your blessings and your afflictions.
You are an insightful, eager to learn star of the universe, becoming all that you are capable of becoming – at your own pace – listening to the beat of your own heart.
And I love you!
