For many of us, life has happened, and it has allowed us to stare at ourselves in the mirror for hours on end and still be unrecognizable to our reflections. Decisions made and relationships you've been in have had a hold on you for so long that getting back up seems like an impossible task. I have sat in the same seat, looked at the same unrecognizable reflection, and cried for hours, days, weeks, on end. That doesn't mean that what was has to continue to be. Today is the day for your release from it all so that you can live and enjoy the fullness of life and get back to loving YOU!
Repeat after me:
Lord, I don't want to hold myself hostage by guilt anymore for the things I've allowed to happen in my life. I no longer wish to be angry at the people and situations that have caused me so much pain. Help me to see my true worth and not sell myself short and settle for less. Teach me how to love life. Teach me how to look in the mirror and love the person looking back at me. I know that if I don't know how to love myself properly, I'll never be good enough to love anyone else or understand what true love should be. Today, I release to you all of the hurt and the pain that my heart feels. I have decided to walk into my future with my head held high, learning to accept who I am day by day and loving it. No one is worth me losing me again. Those who are meant to be a part of my life will accept me as I am. If they cannot accept me, I will have no problem walking away. Be it friends, relationships, or family. My peace of heart and mind are what's most important in my life, and today I declare that I CHOOSE ME!!!
If you have made this your declaration today, leave a comment saying I CHOOSE ME and welcome to the first day of your new life!!!
