Smile from the heart

I was born with a soul which is fairly comfortable being alone, actually, I enjoy being alone. Though after finding the love of my life, my partner, and my soul mate something changed. How is it that you go from a person who would love to sit in quiet with a book in hand to a person who can't stop talking about random things with your partner all day long?
It's really good having someone by your side, someone with whom you can't wait to share everything about your day. But, this doesn't mean that you should not give time to yourself, self-love is the purest and the most fundamental form of love. You can't love others until and unless you love yourself, hence it is imperative to find a tiny bit of time in your day where you can be just with yourself and quietly listen to your heart and mind. Delve into your inner self and try to understand what gives you real joy. It connects you to the spiritual self and helps you be calm, it prepares you to face the challenges of life and gives you the strength to carry on. 
For me, it is the time just after I wake up and get out of bed, without thinking much I just sit in front of my balcony with my plants and stare at the sky blankly for just fifteen minutes or whatever suits the schedule for the day. At this moment I am just with myself and it gives me the mental silence I need to face every curve ball life throws. 

The other day I was reading a poem by Reyna Biddy and absolutely loved it so sharing it with you all, hope this will help you understand the feeling and get in touch with your soul. Here it goes,

Accept yourself as a work in progress the continue
to build yourself into the person you are dreaming to be,
the person you have all the potential to be.
Accept your flaws, accept your truths, accept your past.
and, make light of them. No one can tear you down 
if you make peace with who you are and where you have been
if you are going to focus on the negative at all,
focus on turning them into positives, focus on growing.
Sometimes, oftentimes, our minds are the scariest place to sit.
It will trick you into comparing yourself
to others and it will trick you into believing you aren't
good enough, but you are. you have always been.
And, will always be. you are much more powerful
when you believe in yourself. if you don't love all of you, who will?
give yourself time to blossom.

By Reyna Biddy.
