The past is gone…

The future is uncertain…

The present moment is all that is promised to us…

I’m tired of giving away my seconds…

Wasting my hours…

On someone who doesn’t even care…

Sometimes…

Love is willingly waiting for you…

Once you let go and begin to dare…

Dare to imagine a life without the constant need of outside approval and validation…

Dare to fall in love with yourself and commit to your own happiness with daily dedication…

When you reach the end of your days…

It won’t matter what he or she or they did to you…

It will matter what you did in return…

Did you continue to love even when given hate…

Did you give in and let them have the ultimate power of your deciding fate…

Did you forgive or hold on to these heavy, empty resentments…

Did you pour all of your time and energy into someone else or yourself in lifelong growth and investments….

Because they don’t have the power over you that you believe they do….

And in the end…

It’s your own heart and happiness you have to be true to….
