give back your heart, to itself

The time will come
When, with elation,
You will greet yourself arriving
At your own door, in your own mirror,
And each will smile at the other’s welcome.

And say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine.
Give bread.
Give back your heart
To itself, to the stranger who has loved you

All your life, whom you ignored
For another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

The photographs, the desperate notes,
Peel your image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s exactly this –

To live genuinely to myself,
Authentic to the moment,
And to allow all things to flow organically.

accept and choose

Today,
I accept that the only thing I can control is my state of mind.

I choose to be optimistic.

I choose to live.

Fear is powerful. Fear of the unexpected, fear of failure, fear of loneliness – All it does is riddle your spirit with worry, anger, and despair.

Why not anticipate good? Hopefulness is a beautiful step in the right direction. What’s better is actually believing and expecting positive outcomes. It creates such a distinct clarity of our current blessings and future possibilities. Love, vitality and wealth, in all their forms, are guaranteed.

What’s more wonderful is that this practice actually works. When we expect good, some sort of vibrational shift occurs in the universe. When we are truly vigilant and wholeheartedly believe in ourselves, we begin to see the movement in our lives. I‘m not a mystic or a wizard, although that would make for a much cooler blog. But this is not an illusion of happiness, we see that our health improves, our bank accounts go up, our relationships run smoothly – we are more successful and satisfied.

Don’t wait until tomorrow. Believe in the worthiness of your being and the power of your thought. The general goodness of the world and its effortless beauty. The incredible potential of your self.
