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.

Walking

Virginia 023

“It is no use

walking anywhere

to preach

unless our walking

is our preaching.”

.

~ St. Francis of Assisi

.

.

It is all too easy to talk the talk

but only the humble can walk the walk.

Don’t preach to me or preach at me,

show me that the way you walk,

prove to me that your  actions

are representations of the will of God.

Today, be kind, be loving, be patient and tolerant,

be forgiving and compassionate and most importantly,

be the person your Higher Power wants you to be.

Kindness is walking the way of compassion and love.

Kindness is helping someone help themselves.
