I love solitude.
That doesn't necessarily mean that I don't need people. Human interaction is a necessity, but I feel like many put more into those interactions than taking care of themselves mentally, spiritually, emotionally, physically and even sexually. Be kind to yourself. Forgive yourself. Your good self-care practices will only cause your light to brighten, therefore enabling those around to see it and be drawn into your positive vibes.
She does not know
she thinks her brown body
has no glory.
If she could dance
under palm trees
and see her image in the river,
she would know.
But there are no palm trees
on the street,
and dish water gives back

Oftentimes, I forget that everyone experiences falling short. Failing at something could be extremely discouraging and depressing, but I guess the thing that determines whether you a failure or not is if you get back up. I do stumble. I do fall. I do fail.. but I have no other option but to get back up. I have no other option but to keep on pushing forward with as much peace and positivity my arms could carry.
