Thank you, Amazing Creator
for loving me
in a way
that no human could dothe only perfect love is God's love

For showing me
that I am worthy
of that love

That perfect love.

Yet any and every time
I try to find that perfect love
here on Earth
here in another person

I will be disappointed.

But it’s a reality that
we just can’t love
the way you can

we are flawed
sometimes selfish
often clueless

So I will
stop looking for
perfect love
in people

I will be satisfied
with finding it
only in you

And I will let people
be imperfect in their love
just like me.

I ask a question
and you just ignore me
moving into other topics
as if I said nothing

I share an idea
and you just ignore me
I still have worth, outside of you.asking others for feedback
as if I said nothing

I strain
I strive
Aching for you to notice me
Yearning for you to appreciate me

I want you to be proud of me
I want to feel the glow
of “doing good”

But that just isn’t happening.
And it’s not going to happen.

So I need to remember
reality check time

my worth is not determined
by your approval.

My worth is not determined
by how much you like me
by how smart you think I am
by how much I add to the conversation

It may feel a little extreme, but I realize…
You don’t have to like me.
You don’t have to think I’m smart.
You don’t have to want to hear me.

You don’t have to even see me.

I still have worth
outside of you.

Thank you for joining me this month for the celebration of
i AM complete

as the month comes to a close, i want to remember:

no man, woman or child is needed to make me whole

no romantic comedy, or fairy tale, paints the real picture for me

i do not need to be rescued for a happily ever after

real love is kind, sincere, patient, never resents, and always apologizes

the roles i have in my life, no matter how well i do them, do not complete me

and God love me more than i can imagine, no matter what i do

i don’t need to be anything different
i don’t need to have anything different
i don’t need to do anything differently

because of God’s grace
i am a beautiful image of Him
just as i am.

i rest
and know
i am complete.

all that I experience
all that I do
all that I have been through
creates who I am

God knows
each event in my life
each experience I have
each moment I live

and all of it
is what helps me
be who I am
and know who He is

I am exactly who
who I was created to be
who I need to be
in this moment

Happily ever after
doesn’t look like the movies
doesn’t look like the fairy tales

Happily ever after
is not being swept off my feet
without a care in the world
my every need met
without speaking a word

Happily ever after
is when I express my needs
not expecting others to guess them

Happily ever after
is when we both put in
the time
the communication
the thoughtfulness
the work

But mostly

Happily ever after
is what I choose to make it
because I’m in charge
of my own story.

Thank you God
for loving me
in a way I can barely comprehend

Thank you God
for showing me
what love can truly be

Thank you God
for holding my hand
in times of sorrow or stress

Thank you God
for sharing my joy
in times of happiness and cheer

Thank you God
for loving
with unconditional

How do we know if the love is real?  We are cherished for who we are.

Thank you, mama
for knowing what love should look like
for giving it with all your heart
for believing you deserve it in return

Ok, a little reality check.
Love is amazing.
Love comes in all forms.
To feel love in some form is a necessity in our lives.

But love is not all we need.

And when we start thinking this way
we are in for big disappointment.

A possible song title:
“Communication, patience, understanding, compassion,
humor, practicality, a sense of responsibility,
and the knowledge that no one is going to
perfectly meet all my needs…
is all you need”

I don’t think that would have made the Top 40.

Am I kind to myself?

Or am I harsh with the words I repeat in my head?

Am I critical of me?

Or can I be gentle when I fail?


Being able to love myself for who I am starts with kindness to myself

What does love
feel like,
look like,
sound like
to you?

The answer will be so different for each of us…

I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section!
