Take time to notice - by Charlotte Riley, Being Truly Me 

greet each day with fresh eyes
take a moment
to notice
 
to feel the ground
beneath your feet
rooted safe and strong
 
to move forward
with what you are doing
knowing you belong
 
to not feel rushed
to take your time
discover your own wisdom
 
to not be small
or dim your light
instead stand tall, be inspired
 
to find the courage
to sing a new tune
stay in your lane, share your truth
 
to embrace your ordinary
don’t sell out for fame
be truly you, let others play that game
 
to learn what matters the most to you
that floats your boat
and sparks joy too

to know in this life
you have a purpose
the opportunities to discover it are abundant and endless
 
the adventure comes when you try and fail
and fail some more
only to learn that there’s another door
 
ready to open
waiting to knock
or find the key that fits, to unlock
 
the lofty ideas
that fill your dreams
your every moment of simply being
 
you’re not for everyone
and that’s ok
love yourself first, then give it away
 
one thing is true
run your own race
don’t try and keep to everybody else’s pace
 
take a moment
to notice
each day
 
that being truly you, you can do what you love
and give back to others
in your own unique way
 
 

Another verse to hopefully inspire you and allow you some time to take a breath, slow down and know that your light is burning brightly and showing you the way.
