Years ago, more like yesterday,
I didn’t realize how much I was failing at loving me.
Not to mention, how much life I had stolen from me.
I’d accept the unacceptable.
I’d excuse the inexcusable.
I’d be a straight up mess and pretend like I had it all together.
Justifying unhealthy relationships,
Holding on to seasonal friendships,
Fast forward, things are different these days.
I wake up to put a smile on the lady’s face that pierces my soul with her sharp eyes.
I’m focused on the woman that I have to eat, sleep, pray, and deal with every day of my life.
Conscientious of what I feed my brain and body.
Fueled with energy to satisfy me,
Now I know that my happiness starts and ends with me.
Every day I’m falling more and more in love with me.
