your own shine (a poetic plea)

these words are passionately dedicated
to my two daughters and four nieces
and all women and girls, men and boys plagued by comparisons.

your own shine
don’t strive to be
better than
prettier than
funnier than
happier than
smarter than
brighter than
thinner than
sexier than
more popular than
anyone

always remember
(remind yourself, remind yourself and remind yourself when reminding others)
you are your own
being
presence
force
love
choices
thoughts
intelligence
intention
beauty
passion
power
making

you are already enough
.
you are your own shine.

shine on

    Thank you for the reminder, Becky! This is part of my new year’s intentions. Hmmm… perhaps I should revisit this at the first of EVERY month… xoxo
