This is just a pretty thing I made yesterday.....
Be the Person Within....
Be the person you want to be,
The person deep within.
Don't be afraid to face the world....
Let the future begin.
Hitch your wagon to a star
And follow where it leads.
Be strong of purpose, brave in heart,
As every plan succeeds.
Time to be what you want to be,
Step forward, take your cue.
The spotlight on, the curtain raised,
The stage is set for you.
This poem brings back memories of how I used to be a long time ago.
I had no confidence, had always been shy and any opinions I ever dare voice were quickly stamped on.
Since those far off days I've worked hard to have more confidence and when facing a situation I was nervous about, meeting lots of people etc. I told myself, act AS IF.
AS IF you are more than equal to anyone there.
AS IF you have the most beautiful shoes on and you can walk on air.
AS IF you have just stepped out of the beauty parlour and are really looking your best.
AS IF you have the confidence to do ANYTHING.
Try it......it works and becomes an easy habit. I lost most of my shyness and became my own person. Of course you still have niggles. When I saw a Course advertised for those who lack self esteem in a lady's private house, I threw caution to the wind and joined.
What I saw and heard amazed me. It was confidential, what we saw and talked about stayed in that room.
There were the most beautiful, well dressed women there but I acted AS IF and fitted right in.
I learned one was a model and one I became close to was a Countess.
And all of them had lower self esteem than I.
That Course and those memories have served me well.
So dear friends I send you love and blessings this Sunday and Thank You for visitting.
