Celebrating then and NOW
Celebrating self then and now
As a child I learned celebrating myself was,
anticipation, material gifts, party, others,
learned script, best behavior, negate all unacceptable emotions,
new dress, combed hair, ready for the show,
mainly forbidden foods, indulging allowed, off everything.
Now celebrating mySELF is more
a practice of how I want to live,
being here now, noticing, including, inviting and
accepting all parts, all behaviours, all emotions.
dressing what I feel inside, hair as it pleases me in the moment, feeling it all,
self-care, self-respect, self-love.
