Today I choose to bow my head from respect instead of ignorance,
as I acknowledge all that is happening as an opportunity for growth, even if it’s unpleasant.
Today I choose pain over suffering,
as it is my choice to hold on to whatever hurts me – or to feel and let go.
Today I choose to dance and sing,
as it frees me more than it scares me.
Today I choose to be gentle and soft with myself,
as I realize it’s my responsibility to take care of me.
Today I choose courage over fear,
as walking the unknown path is more exciting than sitting still in a safe haven.
Today I choose love over hate,
as opening my heart allows more light to shine through.
Today I choose to live.
