If I Ever Loved Me

Nancy's Book Cover Half Size

I would give myself the same compassion I show to others.

I would cut myself some slack – instead of just talking smack.

I would be the best of mothers – – to the frightened kid who lives within.

I would lavish praise and admiration for ALL of my many accomplishments; instead of trying to remain humble and “small”. 

I would show gratitude for ALL I’ve been given; instead of searching out the negatives and the “boogy man” under my bed. 

I would revel in this life and this body instead of listening to and trying to please everyone else on this planet. 

I would be ME – completely, genuinely and without restrictions!

IF ONLY I EVER LOVED ME!
