Being you

Being you

Accept yourself
That’s all that I can say
Let your inner voice tell you
The way to live your day
Do not be hard upon yourself
That never did no good
Just be happy, never worry
It’s foolish that one should.

Love yourself
Cause you’re a ‘one off’ too
No one else can play your part
Nobody can be you
It’s a lovely world we live in
Let it seep into your soul
Then when you feel at one with life
Twill get you feeling whole.

Most people call me crazy
But I love being me
I do not care what others think
I only like to be
To be this way, it is my right
A gift sent down by fate
I’m so I’m happy being me
Each day to me is great.

    Sometimes I think I'm there, and other times I'm not. I wish this could stick. ;) I'll favorite this and read it often. Thank you for this inspirational write.

    At first when you start accepting yourself it goes backwards and forwards, until it settles in. It still does for me sometimes, but it's getting less.Thanks for your comments, Becca, and good luck with your transformation...Peter

    Thank you so much Eileen, it took me forty years of trying before I actually caught up with my sanity, but it is a wonderful feeling. Nothing can get me down these days...Peter
