Love Yourself

.

“I don’t trust people

who don’t love themselves

and tell me, ‘I love you.’  . . .

There is an African

saying which is:

Be careful when

a naked person

offers you a shirt.”

.

~ Maya Angelou

.

It’s the same old story, ‘Don’t talk the talk,

if you can’t walk the walk.’

Don’t do as I do, just do as I say, doesn’t work

when it  becomes time to feel the love.

Today, if you don’t feel it, don’t say it,

better yet, just start to have unconditional love

for yourself and the rest of this world,

this is the easier softer way.

Love begins when you love yourself.

Love is helping someone love themselves.

One More Time

.

“Have enough courage

to trust love

one more time

and always

one more time.”

.

~ Maya Angelou

.

.

Love disappoints some, once in awhile,

especially when they set their expectations too high.

Come back down to earth, evaluate the situation,

was everyone giving the love

without expectations of something in return

or was there a selfish motive hiding behind the bushes.

Today, follow the will of your loving Higher Power and

be kind,  be patient and tolerant,

be compassionate and forgiving,

and love without expectations.

Love is always to be trusted, one more time.

Love is helping someone love themselves.
