If I stayed I would be proving myself to others, I had to leave to prove myself to myself. If I Stayed I would love myself less, I had to leave to love myself again. If I Stayed I would allow you to make me feel worthless, I had to leave to see my value. If I stayed I would lose myself. I had to leave to find me. If I stayed I would be always tired, I had to leave to become alive. If I stayed I would watch you hurting me more, I had to leave to heal. If I stayed I would suffocate, I had to leave to breathe. I didn't leave because I stopped loving you, I left because I had to love me too.

Just wanted to share a moment in the book that particularly moved me.
When you walk thru a beautiful botanical garden, you feel open and light, you feel love, you see beauty. You don’t judge the shape and the placement of every leaf. The leaves are of all sizes and shapes and they face every which way and that is what makes them beautiful.
What if you felt that way about people?
Desire to do anything
Is my reason to believe
I believe in my power to do anything that I want
And my power is my reason to believe
I believe in myself and all of my possibilities
And my possibilities are my reason to believe
I believe in love
And love is my reason to believe
I believe in magic, excitement, joy, purpose and passions
And those are my reasons to believe
I believe in enjoyment of what I do and love
my reason to believe
I believe in my wonderful life
And my life is the reason to believe
I believe in beauty
And beauty is my reason to believe
Reason to believe
Knowing That I Can Do Anything!
You have the power to create. Your power is so strong that whatever you believe comes true. You create yourself, whatever you believe you are. You are the way you are because that is what you believe about yourself. Your whole reality, everything you believe, is your creation. You have the same power as any other human in the world. The main difference between you and someone else is how you apply your power, what you create with your power. You may be similar to others in many ways, but no one in the whole world lives her life the way you do.
You have practiced all of your life to be what you are, and you do it so well that you master what you believe you are. You master your own personality, your own beliefs; you master every action, every reaction. You practice for years and years, and you achieve the level of mastery to be what you believe you are. Once we can see that all of us are masters, we can see what kind of mastery we have.

In response to Daily Prompt – Reason to believe
I own many things that improve the quality of my life. Talking cars, houses or books or clothes and other possessions, they are all just things. I would like to think that I do not get empowered by anything I own. I admit, when I was younger, sometimes I felt that owning a certain item could make me more popular or desirable. I still do get great satisfaction from my possessions today. My clothes and shoes definitely, my books, my phone .. It’s not a secret that I love luxury too. I also love my yoga mat so much! However I don’t feel these are my pride and joy.
My most prized possession is Beauty. Beauty I see, is a quality I own, I have and control.
I see as much beauty as I can, everyday. In people, animals, nature, places, art and daily experiences in my life. I see wonders all around me. The more I notice the beauty in others and around me, the more beautiful my life is – my most prized possession.
In response to Daily Prompt – Pride and Joy – What is yours most prized possession?
I am trying to reconnect with you, I wish you tried to reconnect with me too. There has been too much distance between the two of us. My feelings were hurt by your actions, on different occasions, because of your own various circumstances. I never told you, because I never planned to hang on to that. I let go of the drama every time, I forgave you there and then. I never got mad at you. No hard feelings at all. I understood your position well in every situation. You can’t hurt me. But I know.. we will never be the same and you will always be my friend.
You will never know that, I can’t get Mad at You.
