I am back home again.... had the most wonderful trip!!!
it was so great having time to myself .... with no cares about anything...
I had so much fun!
and it's back to work tomorrow...
not so sure I'm ready for that...
but life is good...
so ... it will be fine ...
I wrote this as my plane was landing ...
guess I'm just feeling glad to be me...
after all... that's all I can be...


It is okay to feel exactly what I feel
think exactly what I think
and look exactly like I do.

Everything about me is okay today
exactly the way that I am
and exactly the way
I want to be
and this feels so very good
just happy to be me.

It feels so good
to accept myself
and be me
as I am today.

All my thoughts
and actions
and emotions
where they belong.


  1. Lovely set of self-observations. Beautifully put as you landed back in your non-vacation life. Welcome back!

  2. I'm OK
    Your OK
