Find peace. Find happiness. Find yourself.

if being alone…

if being alone
can teach you anything
let it teach you 

how to be resilient
when you need it most 

how to move on
when there’s nothing left to wait for 

how to rely on yourself
because no one else is there 

how to accept that what’s meant for you 
won’t reach you while you’re waiting for something else 

how to be confident
standing out in a crowd 

how to accept yourself
without approval from those around you

how to let go
and wait to see what magic unfolds

but above all
let the loneliness teach you how to value yourself 

before handing yourself over 
to everyone else

And isn’t it wonderful…

Wouldn’t it feel better
If you just let go
Without worrying about pleasing everyone 
Or feel disappointed when you aren’t perfect 

Wouldn’t it feel better 
To smile when you’re proud 
And celebrate your successes 
Rather than remind yourself of your flaws 

Wouldn’t it feel better
To say what you think 
Be who you are 
And love everything you bring to this world 

And isn’t it wonderful 
That you can

Love Yourself

Love yourself …

When you mess up, when you swear too much, and when you don’t speak your mind. Love yourself when you don’t feel pretty, when you’ve had too much to drink and haven’t made it to the gym. Love yourself when you say something you don’t mean. Love yourself when cheese curds sound better than yoga. Love yourself when you make the same mistake over and over again and can’t understand why. Love yourself when there isn’t any other option, but also when every other option exists. Love yourself on those really tough days when you don’t want to. 

Love always, yourself.
