Alone with Me

© 1999 by Cougar Wisdom. All rights reserved

In finding myself,
I learned that there was more
beauty to the world than I had ever dreamed.

I learned that I could be alone,
yet not lonely.

I learned that I could stand
alone and yet be strong.

I learned that I could be strong, yet
still be tender and gentle.

I learned that I could love, and
not become devoured by that love.

I learned that the more I gave,
the more there was to give.

I learned that in giving freely,
others could receive more openly.

I learned that if I was less judgmental,
I could enjoy so much more.

I learned that no one can make me happy,
but they can share in my happiness.

I learned that others cannot make my
dreams come true, only I can do that.

I learned that I have a right to say no,
which makes saying yes much more profound.

I learned that I am beautiful ... inside and out.

I learned that I have found my place in being
Alone With Me.
