Mesmerized Merciful Beauty in being And where love is, there is light And where light is, there is healing Warmth Wonder Bathed in love Be whoever you want to Be whatever you take hold of In your heart In your soul In your mind Just hold onto Do a cartwheel Dance around the house Bake a cake Snuggle your cat Run 10k Read a book Punch a bag Hike up a mountain Draw a picture […]
