You’re allowed to be lazy
You’re allowed to take time
You’re allowed to think of yourself first
Or be selfish every once in a while.
You’re allowed to find the calm and hide from the chaos
You’re allowed some alone time
Or simply just lie back and do nothing.
You are allowed to slow down
To simply take time for yourself.
I found a letter addressed to me
I read it slowly and carefully
“Hey beautiful! Remember you are beautiful…
In every single way
No matter what you feel each day.
Do not let the scale’s number or the clothing size define you.
You are wonderful and beautiful despite what some other people might say…
Despite what you might say to yourself.
You’re not perfect but you are unique so stop trying to fit in.
Be bold yet simple
Be delicate but strong
Be your awesome you!
There will be people who will put you down.
Society will try to change you to fit the norm.
But remember, you are loved and should learn to love yourself.
Most of all, remember that I love you.”
The letter ended and it was signed by me.
To watch the stars alone
To witness each sunrise by yourself
To dance under the rain
To feel the dew drop kiss your cheeks
To hear the sound of the breeze
To feel the sand beneath your feet
All this you do alone, without anyone, just yourself
But then you find that this is all worthwhile
