Is your life on hold?

Is your life on hold

And how would you know

I opened a box this morning

I’ve had it for a few years

I say a few

About five

It’s a beautiful glossy brown box

and it contains perfume bubble bath body moisturiser and body wash

It smells amazing

But I haven’t used any of it

It was still sealed

I think I thought

I’ll give that to someone else

And what I meant was

I don’t deserve it

Or maybe I thought

when I’ve lost weight

when I’ve had my hair done

When my legs are toned

I’ll use it

Not now

I don’t deserve it

I’ve realised the pattern

There is a trail of I don’t deserves

I’ve got pink sequined ankle boots (yes)


still in box 

The trail comes to an end today

The bath will be bubbly

The body will be moisturised

Perfume will be liberally sprayed

Because I do deserve it

And thankfully I’ve realised

How about you

Do you know you deserve good things

That you don’t need to put them on hold

or delay

Or deny yourself in any way

and even that you can love yourself

and accept yourself

Just as you are

This is truly liberating

Go find things on hold

and wear them and use them and enjoy them
