In My Favor

Standard

What are the chances
I could get good at the relationship
I have with myself
and be kind, gentle,
loving and patient with myself,
the way I always hoped
my husband would be?
What are the chances
I could forgive myself
for all of the times
I was unkind to myself,
criticized myself,
convinced myself
there was something wrong with me?
What are the chances
I could be so intimate with myself
and content with my inner universe
that the outer universe
becomes a clear reflection
of that contentment?
What are the chances
I could get started on this work right away?
What are the chances
I’ve done a lot more of the work
than I’ve ever given myself credit for?
And what if this work
is a lot easier and a lot more natural
than I ever dared to believe it could be?
In this infinite universe of possibility,
I think the odds are in my favor.
