I think more often than not, we’re so quick to criticize ourselves. There’s always something that could be better – we wish we were this, we wish we weren’t that. Very rarely will we give ourselves recognition and embrace who we are. We don’t realize the negative impact our self-destructive talk can have on our home, which is our body. We need to take care of it and nurture it – it’s the only one we’ve got. As flawed as we may be, I hope we find the beauty within and celebrate it daily.

I have a collection of poems, quotes, and writings that I’ve collected over the years. I’ve always loved and appreciated the beauty of how words are constructed and the feelings it produces within – some have inspired me, some have broken my heart, and others have mirrored the reflection within my own soul. Here are 3 I want to share with you today:
I love this piece because of the clever sentence structure and the usage of words – encompassing both pain and hope, beauty, truth, and grace.
This piece makes me look within myself to find the truths to the profound questions he asks. His choice of words are intentional and powerful.
There’s so much love, simplicity, and innocence in this one – to see and say it as it is to the one we deeply love. And perhaps, for our own need for someone to say it back to us.
May we find beauty and truth in the most unexpected places this weekend, and may it set us free.
