You are strong
when you take your grief
and teach it to smile.

You are brave
when you overcome your fear
and help others to do the same.

You are happy
when you see a flower
and are thankful for the blessing.

You are loving
when your own pain
does not blind you to the pain
of others

You are wise
when you know the limits
of your wisdom.

You are true
when you admit there are times
you fool yourself.

You are alive
when tomorrow's hope means more
to you than yesterday's mistake.

You are growing
when you know what you are
but not what you will become.

You are free
when you are in control of yourself
and do not wish to control others.

You are honorable
when you find your honor
is to honor others.

You are generous
when you can take as sweetly
as you can give.

You are humble
when you do not know
how humble you are.

You are thoughtful
when you see me just as I am
and treat me just as you are.

You are merciful
when you forgive in others
the faults you condemn in yourself.

You are beautiful
when you don't need
a mirror to tell you.

You are rich
when you never need
more than what you have.

You are you
when you are at peace
with who you are not.
