A promise to myself


I write an open letter
To none other than me
It’s a promise to myself
To worry less and be

I need to show compassion
And to myself be kind
To stop self-criticism
Say nice things in my mind

I vow to eat healthy food
And exercise each day
To look after my body
In every single way

I hope to let sadness go
By accepting the past
By not comparing my life
I’ll be content at last

I’ll tell myself I’m enough
Exactly as I am
While imperfect, I’m okay
Other opinions be damned

I’ll try to keep my promise
While living life each day
Not let work stress get to me
Make time to also play

    Now, that’s a promise we all need to make to ourselves! I wrote a similar post for today’s prompt. Guess, we all are finally waking up and realising our own self-worth.
