What Matters Most


I’m not gifted, I’m blessed. 

I’m not talented, I’m consistent. 

I’m not clairvoyant, I’m a planner. 

I’m not angry, spiteful or prideful, I’m persistent. 

I’m not a procrastinator, I bide my time. 

I’m not conceited, I’m confident beyond measure. 

I’m not hateful, I know my purpose. 

I’m not a pronoun, I’m an offspring of God.  

I’m not old-school or new, I’m a life-learner. 

I’m not distracted, but I pay close attention. 

I’m not perfect but rather an organized mess (for good reason). 

I’m not alone, for we are as one. 

I’m not of this world, for I am spirit. 

Be you, to the best of your created purpose. Everything else; matters not.
