If you are prone to flinch and cower,
use this secret to empower
and to draw your wits about you.
So no one else will ever doubt you.

The secret to more confidence
and belief in your excellence
is very simple. Trust yourself.
Store all your self-doubts on the shelf.

Leave them there and shut the door.
They don’t describe you any more.
Lock the door. Discard the key.
Decide anew who you will be.

Ragtag’s prompt today was “empower.”

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
