Waking up Full of Awesome;
There was a time when you were five years old ( you pick your age)
and you woke up full of awesome
You knew you were awesome
You loved yourself
You thought you were beautiful,
even with missing teeth and messy hair and mismatched socks inside your grubby sneakers.
you thought you were strong.
You knew you were smart.
Do you still have it?
The awesome.
Did someone take it from you?
Did you let them?
Did you hand it over, because someone told you you weren't beautiful enough, thin enough, smart enough,
good enough?
Why the hell would you listen to them?
Did you consider they might be full of shit?
Wouldn't that be nuts, to tell my little girl below that in another five or ten years she might hate herself
because she doesn't look like a starving and Photoshopped fashion model?
Or even more bizarre, that she should be sexy over smart, beautiful over bold?
Are you freaking kidding me?
Look at her. She is full of awesome. (look at yourself so are you!)
You were, once(still are). Maybe you still are in the process of getting it back (the awesome is alive and well inside of you).
All I know is that if you aren't waking up feeling like this about yourself, you are really missing out.

 

I Have Learned So Much
I Have Learned So Much From God That I Can No Longer Call Myself
A Christian, A Hindu, A Muslim, A Buddhist, A Jew.
The Truth Has Shared So Much Of Itself With Me
That I Can No Longer Call Myself A Man, A Woman, An Angel, Or Even Pure Soul
Love As Befriended Hafiz So Completely It Has Turned To Ash And Freed Me
Of Every Concept And Image My Mind Has Ever Known
-Hafiz from The Gift translated by Ladinsky

 

It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve: and bad things are very easy to get.

Scars remind us of where we’ve been

They don’t have to dictate where we’re going
