#GetYourTeamTogether

You may not fully appreciate your blessings because you are comparing yourself to a team’s efforts to make someone fit a current standard of perfection

You have to recognize you already are pretty wonderful and stand out on your own! You are smart, kind & taste like Meyer lemons meringue tart

Cheer up + #GetYourTeamTogether

#AllAlong

You may not realize
Your impact on the world
Cause you’ve been
Surrounded by insecure souls
Who have failed or may be unable
To acknowledge
How bright your shine has been
#All along

#DrinkUp

One day the Universe will ironically make you realize that you dodged a bullet

And the trauma you’ve endured will finally make sense

Hope this brings a smile to your face – today

#OnPolitics

In the name of
À greater picture should
I conform to politics?

It sounds counterintuitive
To temporarily crush my freedoms
So to further my liberties

But when I think about it
This may have been worth it
If only I
was better at
Kissing asses…

#Blessed

Even tho I may project
My own fears and biases
I am #blessed and fulfilled
Regardless of how I feel

Into my sometimes
blurry lenses I
Get pushed and pulled back
Before my own eyes

All I need is a shift
A bit of perspective
For my hopes and my dreams
To ever become clear

Then promplty energized
Open heart, Spirit High
I give Joy another Chance
And Love in again

#OnSharing

I’m thinking too much – always

So I look for answers in books, podcasts, TED talks and the like

I introspect and adjust
Write and try
to become the best version I can be

I’m growing
Tho I’m not sure how this matter
If there’s no recipients but myself
