Such a simple word


 elusive for so many

why do we look to others to bring us JOY

I have found that the only way

to find true JOY

is to look within

For many years I looked to those around me

to bring me happiness

to make me smile

I blamed my failings on others

I complained that others treated me a certain way

I thought others should treat me better

I felt put upon


I have come to realize that they are not

the saviour I was hoping for

I have begun to speak to myself the way

that I speak to others

God only knows if I spoke to others the way

I speak to myself

I would be a very lonely soul

Begin each day with one word of love 

for yourself

tell yourself you are beautiful

tell yourself you are wise

tell yourself you are worthy

tell yourself you are funny

tell yourself you can dance

look in the mirror and smile

that's right

smile because you like what you see

soon enough you will believe it

and you know what

others will too

when you send out JOY

it comes back to you two fold

Be kind to yourself


you will find your JOY


Peace Love and Hugs
my Friends
