My Turn

The scales of justice will always balance

Your turn will come

I protected others for years

Now, it’s my turn

For safety

*

I fed others well at every opportunity I got,

Now, it’s my turn

For a beautiful body

*

I cared for others’ health

Now, it’s my turn

To be well and vibrant

*

I loved others deeply,

Now it’s my turn

To experience deep love

*

I listened to people with depth and curiosity,

Now it’s my turn

To hear myself out

*

I loved others unconditionally,

Now it’s my turn

To experience unconditional love

*

I forgave people for their misdemeanors,

Now it’s my turn

To feel the lightness of forgiveness

*

I viewed others only in the best light possible,

Now, it’s my turn

To shine like a star

*

I exercised patience for everyone I knew,

Now, it’s my turn

To hold space for me

*

I felt deeply what others felt,

Now, it’s my turn

For self-compassion

*

I looked out for others as if they were my own,

Now, it’s my turn

To be part of my own tribe

*

I made love passionately

Now, it’s my turn

To passionately love myself

*

I made others feel seen

Now, it’s my turn

To see myself

*

I made others feel at home

Now, it’s my turn

To be home

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
