Don’t fret about today.

Things happen the way they are meant to.

Tomorrow you will be reborn. 

A chance for a new and fresh start.

Don’t stress about the past.

It no longer exists.

It can’t hurt you.

Don’t worry about the future.

You can’t control everything that has yet to happen.

The present is right where you need to be.

It’s not only a moment in time, it’s also a feeling and state of being.

It’s feeling and being at one with your heart and soul.

Be There

If you are truly my friend; Please don’t hurt me.

If you truly are my companion; Please don’t wish me harm.

If you truly are my rock; Please don’t judge me by my cover.

If you are truly supportive of me; Please don’t coddle me.

If you believe in me; Please don’t patronize me. 

If you truly believe that I will succeed; Please don’t rise me up only to fail.

If you truly believe I am sturdy and strong; Please don’t save or rescue me.

I don’t need any of these things.

All I ask for is your time.

All I ask is for you to be there.

I do not seek money or material goods.

I do not wish to harm or take advantage of others.

I do not make promises I cannot keep.

I will not make a commitment only to fall through and give in.

I am here for you.

I’m here for whatever you need.

All I ask is for that in return.

Namaste.
