One of the most rewarding feelings we can ever have is being confident in who we are. To doubt yourself or to even criticize self is not the right thing to do, but it is something most of us do at some time in our life. It’s OK, you are human, and you are going to make mistakes, but do not forget who you are. Don’t forget to be your authentic self is something worthy, something others will admire, and you need to be proud of the special, unique person that only you can be. To be anything else is robbing yourself of the life you deserve to have, so be you and always search for ways to improve self.

Be your authentic self
In a world full of wannabes
There is nothing more rewarding
And nothing more liberating
Than to be nobody but you!
*You are an original work of art created by God
*And He created you to be your authentic self
*He doesn’t want you to hide
* He wants the absolute best for you
*And that means to be the best person you can be.
When you love self
When you accept
And respect self
Then you will be honest, kind, & loving
And you will find more joy.
You will find more peace.
You will receive blessings from God
And He will bless you far more than what you can imagine.
Because when you make yourself a priority, you give more of yourself to others
and to God.
So whatever you do
Be the best first-class, best cut-rate version of yourself.
There’s nothing like giving your all,
Making changes & improvements consistently in order to better self
And being completely comfortable with yourself
Now that’s something no one can take from you
Because when you can do all that
It is a freedom & a gift that allows you to be you regardless of what others say or do.
NOTE: I do not put my last name or the full dates on my poems in order to protect myself. I don’t add my last name as some poems I wrote while I was married and others I have written with my maiden name. I know the exact dates of when I write something. I will only post the month and year. Please know that when you pass something off that you didn’t write, it is considered plagiarism.
