Love You

Standard

Positive Thinking

If you cannot love yourself who can you love?

If we cannot appreciate God’s creation of ourselves

why do we admire others with such adoration?

Do not be afraid to look directly in the mirror

for at least a minute. Your nose framed this

way for your face. Your eyes slanted in its

unique way for a purpose.

Love your character, if you are not pleased

with its then make a change. Do not be afraid

to celebrate your indelible mark on earth.

You are great, you are awesome, God wants you

here even when your father left you long ago.

Let God be your daddy, he is the source of life,

the provider of all things.

God wants you even if you are a burden to your

mother, he will guide you to an earthly motherly figure

along your journey.

You are wanted, you are needed, if anyone says

otherwise, please do not believe.

Take your eyes off the ground when you are walking.

Lift up your head, you are a prince/princess because

you are a child of an eternal king.


Inspired by my therapy friend Deanne through a conversation about celebrating birthdays. I write this post for Thinking Corner hosted by Jacqueline every week to encourage positive thinking, inspiration and all the good stuff which keeps us sane.

 

Surviving Malicious Gossip

Standard

Gossip

 

I will keep my head up and when my chin starts drooping, I will slap it back into location.

 

When their words fly darts of Pit Bull viciousness, I will smile in my heart because I know even if  he is silent, my God sees everything.

 

Even when the temptation to respond raises quick like the cheetah out for a meal, I bite my tongue to keep my storm at bay.

 

I am encouraged by the words of the Good Book, I  find comfort in knowing that nothing is wrong with me because scores attack.

 

Attack with their matching red coated armies  because I decide to wait for sex. It is my decision and if I perhaps  change course in the future, it is still my decision.

 

So I live to raise another day because of the mercies of God not to rage holy war with anyone but to live peacefully with all men.

 

Not because I am afraid because I have two blood mix that can shut down these fool but because God has done a number on my heart.

 

I am not cantankerous, needy and hiding under a cloak of much needed attention (that is the issue with many motor mouths), so quarrelling does not appeal to my nature.

 

May God deal with them.


 

Prompt Stomp Week 14: Survival

 

Be You

Standard

Be you:
Even when they mock your moral compass. Why should you care how others feel about your decision to stick to a certain sexual orientation.

Be you:
Even when you stand alone on the other side of a crowded street.

Be you:
When they try to mock the little that you have but you know their behaviour indicate your superior.They have their riches but still furious at your rags.

Be you:
Even when they are screaming that you are nothing. You see they want you to be just as them but you decline. Hence their devotion to hate.

Be you:
Even when they set up roadblocks simply to defeat your goal oriented nature but just know one day your persistence will pay off.

Be you:
Even when you feel defeated because the greatest had days they felt like giving up but they kept toiling on, so you just hang on.

Be you:
Even when throwing words for you on the streets is not sufficient, so they find your blog to add more gossip to their buzz.

Be you:
Even when you are the only one who believes in you because if everyone starts favouring you but you question yourself everything is still not A ok. The most powerful and loving person to believe in you is yourself.

Be you:
Even when the universe rings its bell, one day someone in the future will learn from you, you can inspire and teach sleeping in a grave.

Just be you because you are important.
