Pay Yourself!

With every saturated step
I want my feet sinking in purpose
My heart-beat thumping in joy
and my thought-life flowing with peace

I no longer look to be pleased
I do not feel entitled
I no longer search for someone to make me happy
No one owes me anything
I owe myself respect and goodness


Today I am love
I am not a frog on a log
waiting to be discovered by a princess
My charm, laughter, kindness and smile
is not waiting on a kiss to be unlock

Today in light of Love
My spirit is free
With breath in this body
I aim to be all I was created to be
No people pleasing tragedy

Today I will pay me
Cause only I can be me
poetically and uniquely
offering myself generosity…


Treat yourself…the way
you think someone should treat you
and watch how lovely you will become!

  3. I’m opening myself up to date this year and my daughter asked me how it was going? I told her, “I’m willing to kiss a lot of frogs to get to the one who is worthy.” 🐸
