I Dare You To Love Yourself

I dare you to love yourself more than you hate the flab under your arms

I dare you to love yourself more than you hate going to work

I dare you to love yourself after eating more sandwiches than you should have

I dare you to love yourself despite that one time you puked on someone you love

I dare you to love yourself despite every bad outfit you have ever worn

I dare you to love yourself the next time you hate yourself

I dare you to love yourself more than all the stars combined

I dare you to love yourself with the passion of a rainstorm

I dare you to love yourself like a sweet, sweet melody

I dare you to love yourself like the birds love their own voice

I dare you to love yourself like I need you to

I dare you to love yourself like there’s nothing else that exists

I dare you to love yourself like your mama loves you

I dare you to love yourself if your mama doesn’t love you

I dare you to love yourself like nothing else matters

I dare you to love yourself like you wouldn’t be sleeping otherwise

I dare you to love yourself like a monster loves its cave

I dare you to love yourself monsters and all

I dare you to love yourself whether you feel big or small

I dare you to love yourself throughout all the seasons

I dare you to love yourself without reason

I dare you to love yourself like a tree loves its roots

I dare you to love yourself like a liar hates the truth

I dare you to love yourself like you can fly if you want to

I dare you to love yourself so much its creepy

I dare you to love yourself so much its obnoxious

I dare you to love yourself to the point of no return

I dare you to love yourself all the way to Saturn and back

I dare you to love yourself without regret or tact

I dare you to love yourself so hard I need sunglasses

you can’t teach wisdom

Wiser Ones have warned me not to, i disobeyed, i always did, i payed the price of disappointment.

change will not happen, not ever, until it is summoned, fully, with the entire heart.

it is fueled by love; it does not bloom until it is desired; it sleeps until we lure it out; become manifest!

you can’t teach wisdom but you can share love.

you can’t age backwards. you’re ancient, permanently, at 20 years old when you’ve changed and learned and tried so much that everyone around you seems to still be crawling.

it only hurts until you let it go, the loneliness, and remember you are Love, loved, loving.

remember to feel good

you know your Spirit is way the hell awake when all you wanna do is smile and run and scream and cry and jump for joy literal happiness.

run on run on run on run on sentence endless

like you.  beautiful stream of energy. beautiful, vibrant

vibrating being 🙂

 

don’t try so hard

be softer, even

softest if you can

 

don’t try, do.

 

for c.

c.,

you are more lovely than the jasmine flowers in your tea.

no one is going to tell you what to do, where to go, how to find your freedom.

tell me more about your mother.

help me understand why you love the ones who hurt you so.

i am so happy for you.

all will be well soon.

 

love,

your friend
