A Free Spirit
Self-love and spiritual well-being
For all you poetry fans, here is an uplifting poem I wrote some time ago. As spring is just around the corner, it reminded me how wonderful it is to be alive and healthy, and happy. I wanted to share this celebration of life with you today.
What is self-love? Here is an interesting article that tells us that it is a state of appreciation for oneself and how to practice self-love.
A state of appreciation for oneself
I am only just learning to love myself more and instead of putting myself down and giving myself a hard time when there really is no need to, thanks to the love and support of close family, I feel more worthy of myself and am much more confident than I used to be.
To practice self-love, start by being kind, patient, gentle and compassionate to yourself, the way you would with someone else that you care about.
I hope you realise how special you are. Wishing you a peaceful, joyous, and relaxing Sunday.
A Free Spirit
I dance like nobody is watching
Turn my face toward the sun
Bathe my soul in self-love
Aching for my spirit to be free
A calm washes over me, soothing
Demons of doubt that plagued me
With hurt from long-past abuse
Buried deep within me, sullying my soul
My life is back on track and the road ahead
Straight and clear far into the distance
No rain clouds gathering, no darkness
Only sunshine, warmth, and rays of love
Sparkling freshness like mountain dew
Seeps into my soul, coursing, strumming
Through my blood, Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! My spirit is free
