Affirmation - Poem by Clare Grover

So, I sit on my own and I contemplate how my life will be in one week... one year...in ten years, and I chuckle inwardly so the passers-by don't notice.

I cannot possibly know what to expect, and have learnt that I cannot control the future. The only way for me to be sure of anything is to embrace Today, and the trials, the joys, the ups and downs that it brings.

Each time the sun sets and I rest my eyes, my dreams parade and I relish in the ambiguity they possess.
Each time the darkness turns to light, I am faced with possibilities I have yet to encounter, people I have yet to meet, and difficulties I have yet to endure.

I used to fret about the unknown, and I forgot to appreciate what was right in front of me for fear of..I don't know what. But I am wiser and less stubborn, and no longer afraid to admit my failings.

I smile as often as I can.
I love as openly as I dare.
I worry less about 'what if's'.
I thank the stars for gleaming, even beyond a cloudy sky, for reminding me that I am but a mere speck in this awesome world.

I may be swept away, or blown around, but I am real, I am solid, and I am significant.
I will shine as brightly as my heart allows and be grateful for what I have rather than complain about what I don't.
I will be conscious of the special people I care for, and the love that my children shower upon me every day.

I will be happy to be me, and be proud of that
