Forgiving Memories

For this week’s Forgiving Fridays (actually on a Friday this time!), this poem is based on what happened on the first day of the new school semester, on Monday. I had gotten really anxious about going to class last semester and was scared that it would happen again. I did get a lottli overwhelmed in the stairway because of all the people but was able to not get stuck in it this time.


Just take a breath, this year is not like the last:

You are alive right now, not in the past,

Close your eyes and take a breath then fear is there,

And slowly ascend the set of concrete stairs

Into this new semester’s classroom

Caught not by the past — Resume.

  1. Oh I love this! Your honesty and acceptance with yourself is incredible. I also am inspired by your altitude – to see that this year is not last year. And to bring love to it all. Thank you for contributing this for #ForgivingFridays – I’ll share it this week. Many blessings, and have a great semester. ❤

  2. You know affirmation will really help you reframe your thoughts.

    E.g.

    I am going to rock this year of school. I am top of the class. All the teachers love me. I get on with all students. I am a brillant student. I rock . I am A star student.

    Repeat this 7 times as lines with pen and paper, eveyday, until it becomes your automatic response to any tension..and see your world change.

    Ps it works… i tried it on me.. and i still do it daily.. and i am way past my school days

    Wish you happiness and success.
