You were so distant
I forgot you were there at all.

It’s funny how life is.
How the people you should feel closest to are often the ones furthest away.

Having had the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle coincide with the Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada created quite a “royal” buzz – more than usual.
Not often does a “regular” girl live out her Cinderella story, marry a prince and become a princess. Or rise in personal status and influence because she’s married into a family of “real-life” kings and queens.
But is becoming a royal the only way to do so? For one to feel like a princess and influence others for good?
For me, it’s learning to love yourself and others well, that’s what’s required – not marrying a prince!
Reach out and help others.
If you have the power to make someone happy, do it.
Be a vessel, be the change, be the difference, or be the inspiration.
Shine your light as an example.
The world needs more of that.

The mother’s love is not given to us to spoil us with indulgence,
but to soften our hearts,
that we may in turn soften others with kindness.
