Things I’ve learnt from being friends with myself

© aNadventures

How to snooze the alarm in my mind

and take a moment to breathe. 

Nourishing my soul with consciousness

How to put lotion on my feet, 

the ones carrying me through life. 

Moving forward, step by step. 

How to celebrate my half-birthday

and every day. 

Raising my glass to the ups and downs. 


When to cancel plans

and snuggle up with myself. 

Feeling connected to the moment. 

When to go for a walk

and treat myself to coffee.

Letting the sun caress my face. 

When to write poetry

and love letters to myself. 

Including rhymes sometimes. 


Where to find the comfort I need. 

Spending time with the ones who care.   

Where to find the hugs I need. 

Asking for what I want. 

Where to find the courage I need. 

Listening to that voice within. 


How about YOU? What have you learnt from being friends with yourself?

  1. Beautiful post! I’ve learned that by being my own best friend, I have have peace of mind. Being my best friend means self-care and being guilt-free. It means I don’t worry about what others think and I can live life on my terms. Thank you so much for posting. ❤

    • Thank you, cheriewhite! Living life on you own terms. That’s a wonderful way to put it. I think that it’s important to be as kind to ourselves as we are to those we deeply care for. After all, we’ll always enjoy our very own company, so better make friends with ourselves sooner rather than later. 😉
