that the universe offers vast opportunities for me;
in my own uniqueness as someone created by a greater reality;
in the prayer which is a meaningful way of keeping in touch with our Creator and its miraculous power.
in my talents and in my aptness to share it with others;
in my capacity to love and affirm others in as much as I did for myself;
in my willingness to give without expecting the return of favor.
that my experiences of pain and failure allow me to grow where I am planted;
that I am in full control of my life so that I may not be clouded in thinking about what other people may say;
that I have the courage to fulfill my dreams and to move on despite storms and stresses.
that I am the only me in this world;
in learning to love myself and feel content with whatever I achieve;
that God has a special purpose for my stay here on earth.
About This Poem
This is an inspirational poem about developing self-confidence and believing in one's talents and abilities. As a young child, due to trials encountered and limited resources, I was in a constant struggle in establishing confidence in what I can do. As I go along with this journey in life, this serves as a gentle reminder of my uniqueness. I hope you will find it meaningful too.
