I Love Myself The Way I Am

A dear friend reminded me of this beautiful poem by Jai Josephs and how powerful it can be to recite in front of the mirror.  I imagine that the words stir different emotions in all of us. I know, for me, it certainly strikes a chord deep within and may just be that little something that helps me to nurture myself that little bit extra and to step further in to the space of complete love and gratitude for all that is. May it be a source of inspiration, spiritual growth and love for you too.

I love myself the way I am
There’s nothing I need to change
I love myself the way I am
There’s nothing to re-arrange
I’m beautiful and capable
Of being the best I can
And I love myself just the way I am

I love the way you are
There’s nothing you need to do
When I feel the love inside myself
It’s easy to love you
Behind the tears, your rage and fears,
I see your shining star
And I love you just the way you are

I love the world the way it is
‘Cos I can clearly see
That all the things I judge
Are done by people just like me
But till the day of peace on earth
That only love can bring
I’ll help it grow by loving everything

I love myself the way I am
And still I want to grow
But change outside can only come
When deep inside I know
I’m beautiful and capable
Of being the best I can
And I love myself just the way I am
