I’m going to hold my head up high and forgive more easily.
I’m going to stop more often to appreciate what surrounds me
I’m going to stop saying no when my heart says yes.
I’m going to hug, kiss and show my love and appreciation every single day.
I’m going to eat that chocolate and cry when I feel like it.
I’m going to stop getting hung up on things I can’t control,
and start paying more attention to the things I can.
I’m going to write and read and learn and fight for what is right.
I’m going to be cautious and protect my soul while living as freely as I can.
I’m not going to settle on anything that is “easier”.
I’m not going to watch from the sidelines just because it’s scary.
Because fear won’t guide me anymore. I won’t hide anymore.
I’m going to watch the waves and dip my toes in
and i’m not going to be mad at myself when my pants get wet
because i didn’t jump back in time.
And i’m going to give up sleep some days to watch the sun rise.
I’m going to give up time so my children can smile.
I’ll pay more attention to life through their eyes.
I’m going to love who deserves my love.
And those who don’t I will forgive
because it only hurts me if I don’t.
I’m going to book that trip because if I’m gone tomorrow
I’ll at least go with the memories.
I’m going to love myself wholeheartedly
because who is going to love me if I won’t love me?
I’m going to worry less about money
and worry more about the things that money can’t buy.
I’m going to live this way because tomorrow is not guaranteed and I don’t want to miss out on anything.
