What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love - One star in the galaxy

You are the beginning and the end of the phenomena called YOU! Iyanla

I love my grandmother, she tells me in her scolding voice "Yaki, what you
see in the mirror is just a little piece of the whole of the best of you,
so do not ever be fooled" I always used to laugh when she said it, now,
today my friend has passed I wish I passed on the message, I am doing it
now to all of you

You look in the mirror and you see yourself but really it's not you at all I mean, there is your eyes, your nose and your cute little smile but that's not all there is to you Because you are not seeing the amounts of lives you've touched with your presence You are not seeing all the people you made laugh and smile You are not seeing how strong you are In fact all the battles you have overcome are completely invisible when you
look in the mirror, hidden beneath your outside features So my darling, listen to me when I say this, you are not as simple as a reflection You are complex, wonderful and simply brilliant that a mirror does not have
the capability to show It's only one tree in the forest one star in the galaxy one grain of sand in the beach and you are so much more than that Please believe that Peace!

RIP My J McLeod
