Self Love is amazing

Hello and welcome to a place of feeling like a champion because of how you talk to YOURSELF. Welcome to a feeling of wanting to be the best you can be, regardless of whether someone from the past has tried to hold you back from being that. Here’s to doing more, being more and loving oneself, even if you have been cheated on or hurt in another way in the past. Loving myself is the greatest gift of all, and I hope you love yourself too xo

The Capital

He chose her over me,

As though she was first place and
I was a lonely second –

And now it seems you take the
Last space in my life, outside my
Heart’s walls and miles from my reality.

I realized there is a place for me that
Need only consist of my hands over my
Own heart, settling it and signing it with a
Capital “I” –

And that myself gets the gold star after all.

Here’s to wishing a happy Mother’s Day to those special ladies out there!

Here’s a poem I wrote to my own Mom. I know I am so blessed to have her and whenever I need her she is always there. That’s an incredible feeling to have someone like that in life. I know I am so fortunate.

I hope that you all are having a great weekend, whether you go out, relax at home or do a bit of both. ♥

Your Spirit, Mom

We take to the skies one day, don’t we?

Before then, we treasure the moments of
Making connection between foot and field,
Making connection between heart and strings.
