Friday Frills



Allow yourself to dream...and when you do, dream big

.


Allow yourself to laugh...
and when you do, share your laughter

.
Allow yourself to cry...and when you do, let it be the solace to your sadness.

Allow yourself to be determined
...and when you do, you will find success.


Allow yourself to set goals...
and when you do, reward yourself as you move forward

.
Allow yourself to believe in yourself
...and when you do, you will find self confidence.



Allow yourself to lend a helping hand...
and when you do, a hand will help you.


Allow yourself relaxation...
and when you do, you will find new ideas.


Allow yourself to learn...
and when you do, learn all you can.

Allow yourself love
...and when you do, you will find love in return.


Allow yourself to be happy...and when you do, you will influence others around you.


Allow yourself to be positive
...and when you do, life will get easier.

Oh, I really like that the word used was "allow," because who else is holding us back from all those things than ourselves?
Great picture!

Beautiful poem. I think that sometimes we don't allow ourselves to feel, to be happy, and dream big.

Sam, I love your Friday Frills! The first line - to dream big - is my favorite, because I really believe anything (even the seemingly impossible) is possible!
Happy Friday and thanks for the sweet compliment! My new picture is actually from my birthday in May in Chicago :)

As always, this is so inspirational! My favorite line is the 7th one. I completely believe that helping others is important, not just having other people help you. And also the 8th line. After I do yoga, I feel more relaxed and more ready to do work :)
