You Are

You are strong
   when you take your grief and teach it to smile.
You are brave
   when you overcome your fear and help others to do the same.
You are happy
   when you see a flower and give it your blessing.
You are loving
   when your own pain does not blind you to the pain of others.
You are wise
   when you know the limits of your wisdom.
You are true
   when you admit there are times you fool yourself.
You are alive
   when tomorrow's hope means more to you than yesterday's mistake.
You are growing
   when you know what you are but not what you will become.
You are free
   when you are in control of yourself and do not wish to control others.
You are honorable
   when you find your honor is to honor others.
You are generous
   when you can take as sweetly as you can give.
You are humble
   when you do not know how humble you are.
You are thoughtful
   when you see me just as I am and treat me just as you are.
You are merciful
   when you forgive in others the faults you condemn in yourself.
You are beautiful
   when you don't need a mirror to tell you.
You are rich
   when you never need more than what you have.
You are you
   when you are at peace with who you are not.
