Easier Said Than Done

Treat people the way you want to be treated.  ~The Golden Rule

Easier Said Than Done

Learn to treat
yourself with kindness, because other people
might not. Believe the
truth contained in your heart. Get out of your own way
and become the person you
were meant to be. If you want
to, you can fix what’s broken. You can be the one to
make sure every injury will be

  1. This might be my favorite poem you've written this month. I love the message and the admonition to treat oneself well. I also love the title.

  2. I don't always comment Mary Lee, but I am always in awe of how you write these profound poems!

  3. We never really do remember the number one reason to treat ourselves well, do we? If only I had learned THIS as a kid.

  4. No, Tanita, we do not. if only. I was all sure that Mary Lee wrote this for a kid who wants to be a doctor, but really she wrote it for me....

  5. Mary Lee, this one gives me shivers all over....
