Three hot air balloons



Affirmations are reassurances we give ourselves to self-soothe and bolster our confidence, often in the mornings or when times get tricky. Write a poem of affirmations to yourself, reminding yourself of your own best qualities. [Photo by Aaron Burden on Unsplash]


  • She

    She was told to blend in,
    to never show off.

    “Women should be seen and not heard” 
    or maybe not seen either;

    She was told to be smart, 
    but of course, not too smart.
    you must not scare them away.

  • Me

    I have always been quiet. And yet when I was younger, I would wear loud outfits, sing and dance no matter who was around. I played with dolls longer then most girls my age.
