Gratitude in the Mirror
>> View all 3
Using the inspirational words of gratitude to step out of worry and fear and walk in the light of purpose and passion!
There are times in this life when my smile is real.
My eyes shine with mirth to express my zeal.
I walk much lighter with a carefree step.
The commitments I make are all proudly kept.
People are drawn to my own inner light;
I'm like a beacon they follow even out of sight.
These are the moments when I am most proud,
To help those around me let go of their doubt.
Then there are days when the reverse is true .
I hide under covers feeling quite blue.
I worry and stress about all that might be,
Forgetting the NOW that I practice with glee.
What can I do to make this moment count,
When bills and debt seem hard to surmount?
I sit down and write all my thoughts to inspire,
Words dancing on pages as my mood transpires.
Soon the creativity brings light to my heart.
I am ready to begin all the tasks I must start.
I look forward to the challenge of who I will be.
As I radiate with gratitude for all to see.
I'm excited and scared as I plan out my dream,
Aware of the pieces and parts of my scheme.
I let go of perfection as it gets in my way.
My smile is real for the success of today.

|Wow is the best word I have to describe this one Beverlee; that first verse is so true;I relate to every word.As a matter of fact, the entire poem is pretty amazing. This one,I am sure you read on those "Blue days."
My poem, "Soaring," provides the same lift as this one does.
