The Day After

In celebration of International Day of Happiness, let us take a moment to lighten ourselves and welcome happiness and self-compassion into our own hearts.

Oh, my dear
You feel deeply
You search intently

Often your toughest critic
Unforgiving
Relentless
Striving
Questioning

Leave that mind behind
Just for a moment
Or more

Look up
Let light in
Lift the sides of your lips
Let those eyes twinkle
The lines crinkle
The dimples deepen

Laugh
Lighten
Broaden your heart

For it isn’t there just to feel broken
Or weighed down

Fill this gentle heart with light
Let it expand
Let it take flight

Tickles and giggles
Rainbows and fairy floss
Sprinkles and clouds

Pinks
Purples
Yellows
And shimmer

Groove a little
Glow
Shine bright

For you are here to live, love and laugh
And for goodness sake ….
Lighten up!
