It’s February! Have a great month and continue to be encouraged!

“Mountains in the Mirror”

Behind each facial expression grows a tale,
Ask the one who knows you well.
Forgive yourself then flow is unveiled!

A good role is your foothold;
You’ve stopped, dropped, and now you should roll.
If faith is strong and desire’s stout,
Then you can put bad fires out.

One must practice great to activate excellence…mastery takes reps.
How can I ever excel if half of me hates self?
Tell it like it is because nothing’s above truth.
I’m here to tell you that you’ve gotta love you.

Only God’s opinion has dominion…so get your life straight.
Cares are few, wear the shoes and if they fit you right, great.
Close curtains on burdens even if they’re lightweight.
Satan’s pushing buttons and he’s counting what steers ya.
He’s hoping that you won’t overcome those mountains in the mirror.
