I need to change my body
I need to change my hips
I need to change my butt
I need to change my thighs
I need to change my stomach
But the reality, the truth is
I need to change my attitude
I need to thank my body
I need to thank my hips
I need to thank my butt
I need to thank my thighs
I need to thank my stomach.
They work hard for me daily.
“Be the Change” according to Gandhi
Act from a place of generosity
Join hands together to show solidarity
Together we can change the world
political change, social change, personal change
upheaval, unrest, unsettled, unsatisfied, and unbelievable
apathetic, overwhelmed, disinterested, unenpowered, and lazy?
There is so much to be
angry, mad, upset, disheartened, sad about.
That it seems like too much.
It’s hard to be energized, activated
about everything, all of the time.
So don’t. Pick one for now.
Quietly, solidly work toward the change.
Change the way we see ourselves
Because the mirror we are using
reflects our daughter’s image of herself.
Be sure to show her herself
reflected back in beauty and light.
Change the lightbulbs, change the sheets
change clothes, change menus, change daipers
I will not. I will change
behavior. I will change my actions.
I will change my life-upward.
Change is inevitable-so they say.
from my observation, they are right.
The trick is not to avoid change
the trick is adapting to it.
a great quote I read once:
“We cannot control the wind, but
we can adjust our sails.” Truly.
