This poem was my self-esteem builder. When I had finally broken away from my past life completely I wrote this poem and placed it my mom’s bathroom mirror where I was living at the time. Every day I would go to the bathroom and read it before I did anything else. Whenever I began to get back into self-doubt I would say this poem in my head and everything seemed better.

Allow your mind to expand.
Use each day you live to learn and grow.
Never give up on the dreams your soul holds.
You’re unique.
You’re beautiful.
You’re strong.
You’re capable.
Live each day as you are,
And as you want to be.
