I Want to Fly
The word freedom has been resonating deep inside my soul like the buzzing whirrrr of a hummingbird wing.
I set myself free from any false sense of control.
I set myself free from the expectations I may have placed upon myself or others.
I set myself free from fears that no longer serve a purpose.
I set myself free from the opinions of others.
I set myself free from my own destructive thoughts... *you really don't have to believe everything you think!*
I set myself free to be who I am... to make lot's of mistakes and be perfectly imperfect.
I set myself free to experience joy ~ every single day, even if it only takes shape as a single flower, or a single piece of chocolate, a smile, a hint of sunshine, a soft pillow at the end of a hard day....
I set myself free to love and be loved.
Most of all, I set myself free from this list. These are gentle intentions...not expectations.
Today, I let go and fly....and see where my new wings will carry me.
