Being the best version of myself each day is my goal
Being the best version of myself each day is my goal: Pasted above above my bed on my prayer & affirmations wall, so that's the first thing I see as I wake up, and the last I see as I go to bed (1/2)

BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE

Be the best you can BE Say the best you can SAY Do the best you can DO Feel the best you can FEEL Love the best you can LOVE Oh Cry the best you can CRY Feel the hurt as it HURTS Then heal the best you can HEAL Share the best you can SHARE Then claim the best you can CLAIM And Live the best you can LIVE Cause you got only ONCE AND YOU DESERVE IT OH YES YOU DO and That's my WISH ...FOR ME & MINE TO BE THE BEST (c) Marie Abanga 2017 www.marieabanga.com

You're welcome, dear. That's how it is. Using our gifts is an attitude of gratitude. Keep it up, sister!

That is beautiful Marie, shoots straight to the heart!
"Feel the hurt, then heal"....so obvious, but o so NOT obvious! That line made me realise that sometimes healing does not come because we try to heal why denying the hurt at the same time. Thank you for pointing out that truth, and for sharing life giving words in song:)

Oh Nini,

Thank you so much. You got it and I had to face that and feel that and do that myself.
My pleasure always
