A reminder to self: Do Not Dismiss the "I"
Too often we get lost in the “I want” of our desires that we erase the “I” in “me.” We “want” someone to slay our dragons, rescue us, love us unconditionally, make the monsters in our lives go away, Teflon us from the wicked challenges life can at time throw our way.

Love you as you are
Take you out
Buy you things
Make you feel ten feet tall and invisible
That you DO NOT dismiss the “I” in that somebody
YOU ARE SOMEBODY too
And loving you,
Providing for you

It should be YOUR priority
It begins with you
Set the example
Lay the foundation of how you are too be treated
Set the standard
Are the template
Everyone that encounters you must be required to meet that standard or elevate it
If YOU don’t do for YOU
If YOU don’t advocate for YOU
If YOU don’t have your own back
Accept YOU, as you are
Whom do you expect to?
Are the key to your destiny, desires, wants and aspirations
Do not dismiss the “I” for the possibility of a maybe.
