I Am Mine. Before I Am Ever Anyone Else’s – Nayyirah Waheed

We are born into this world and are predetermined to need love and affection. We crave inclusivity and dread rejection. We are tribal by nature and as introverted as some of us may be, we do need the interaction with other human beings. Human nature is a beautiful creation.

We are to celebrate this beautiful creation with giving all that we are born predetermined with, all we crave, and all we need, to ourselves first. Celebrate this creation by loving ourselves, being kind with our self-talk, taking time to rest and to recharge, pursue our passions, and nurture our growth with what feeds it. Be comfortable in our own skin and live unapologetically as who we are.

Be yours, first. None of us are a half of something. We are a whole on our own. As messy or as put together as we may be; we are complete and belong to the heart we see reflecting back when we look in the mirror. Love that heart. It’s the only one we will ever have and the only one we will ever share. Be yours, first.
