Enough

I pray I’m enough

When nice booties and perky tits
dance across your social media timeline
In an effort to entice you with a fun time

I’m pray my adoration is enough
When your hairline recedes back in time
And your gut tries to cut the line

I pray my listening ear is enough
When the world tries to beat you down
And your friends are nowhere to be found.

I pray I’m enough.

Quotes for the Soul: Present

I believe that one of the most valuable gifts you can give yourself is time. Taking time to be more fully present. Your journey to become inspired and more connected to the greater world around us starts right now.” – Oprah Winfrey

I am no longer simply living. I am finally present. I have been reflecting on life lately. Thinking about all the things I have done. Everything is but a vague memory. I realized that I hardly live in the moment. Especially with the prevalence of smart phones and social media. The picture becomes more important than the moment. I also tend to live for tomorrow as if it was rightly promised. If I were to say I had any regrets in life it would be that I wasn’t always fully present. I didn’t bask in the moments I’ve been blessed with. I am however elated that I can recognize this hindrance at a tender age. Moving forward I commit to not only living but being fully present “and connected to the greater world around us” while truly basking in life’s most beautiful moments.
