i am the best person i can be when i look myself in the mirror.
i am perfectly imperfect and yet when you look at me i feel flawless.
i feel the most beautiful when you listen to me tell my stories.
i never really loved myself the way that i do today and i have you to thank.
and thats all we really both need to know.
i keep candles lit not because i am afraid of the dark, i just dont like feeling alone.
i have come to learn i have never been alone.
thanks be to my guardian angels.
as sure as my guardian angels love watching me sleep, sometimes they awaken me from my dreams.
i understand the power of prayer because of them. knowing full and well that my life began with them, my ancestors.
perhaps it is madness, perhaps not?
what i do know is i found love deep inside of me and they helped me along the way.
this morning, after reading through the last year, i realize letting them go was not an easy process.
however, it was my ancestors who nudged me forward and showed me a better dream.
a dream come true as they sit on our window sill smiling from above the heavens with star crossed eyes.
dreaming better dreams.
