I choose to let go of all my fears,
for they have crippled my dreams
I choose to let go of all my insecurities
for they have crippled my authentic self
I choose to let go of all my past mistakes,
for they have crippled my courage to move forward
I choose to let go of all my judgements of others
for they have crippled my ability to have an open heart
I choose to let go of my self-loathing inner critic
for it has told me that I was not enough
I choose to love myself and live my life authentically
I choose to open my heart and let my light shine brightly
I choose to let go and live my life as me…
As I wrote this piece, I felt a sense of liberation. The flaws that I listed above have been shortcomings that I have struggled with in my life. They have crippled my ability to live my life authentically, therefore I am choosing to let go of them all. Though I am still a work in progress, I have been so grateful for the work I have done thus far. The goal is to eventually become the best version of myself by letting go of all my faults.
