It’s Not Selfish To Love Yourself,
Take Care Of Yourself,
And to Make Your Happiness A Priority,

The Beauty in Retreat
We take pictures to document our fabulous lives but forget what it FELT like to be there.
We take pictures to document our fabulous lives but forgot to remember to be BE there.
We take pictures to document our fabulous lives but forgot to remember to be HERE.
We plan to have a wonderful life but forget to LIVE in the wonder,
We plan to be a success but never find THERE as HERE
We plan to be happy but forget to REALISE we are.
We see the value in others but forget to see it in OURSELVES,
We see what’s outside but forget to LOOK inward,
We see the time of life but forget to have the time of our LIFE.
We feel our potential but forget to REALISE it,
We feel our love but forget to LOVE ourselves,
We feel there’s more but forget to EXPLORE.
The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.
