My Daily Reminders

I remind myself to breathe
in, out, in, out


I remind myself to smile
wide, wide, that’s it

I remind myself to be kind
kindness costs nothing


I remind myself to learn
growth is essential 

I remind myself to forgive
forgiveness is divine


I remind myself to hope
there’s no life without hope

I remind myself to nourish my body
the greatest health is wealth

I remind myself to create
creativity is therapeutic
