To Be Glorious

I was sent this poem and thought to share with my readers…be blessed!! All good things need to be shared, and this is one of them!

To Be Glorious

Today, I choose myself.

I choose to be the Queen of my own domain.

To name myself as the one who governs my life.

I shall not wait for the approval of others.

I will act on my own behalf and inner knowing.

I choose to listen to this great heart within me.

To honor what it wants, needs and longs for.

I shall no longer allow the sacred parts of myself

to feel worthless, fragmented and isolated.

I choose to take up space in this Universe.

To inhabit this vessel of self, which is my holy temple.

I shall not keep my gifts hidden any longer

or allow fear to keep me from my greatness.

I choose to be as wonderful as I truly am.

To explore just who I might be, after all these years.

I shall not judge myself for where I have not

journeyed yet, or the ways I have been untrue.

I choose to forgive myself and release the old stories

to make space for new stories, legends even, to emerge.

I shall not forsake my dreamings and visionings or allow

others ideas to crowd my own. I will think my own thoughts.

I choose to fall in love with who I am, as I am, right now.

To embrace the messy and the marvelous within me.

I shall not diminish my light, one day longer. Hear me now.

I release the shadows. Open hands. Open heart. Whoosh.

I choose to see myself, and to be seen by you, too.

To find you and dance with you and let you know I see you.

I choose to see myself as whole, holy, worthy and wildly me.

And Oh! So much more than enough. I choose to be outrageous!

Being glorious is not a default. It is a choice. Hear me now.

Are you ready for this? I am. Today, I choose myself.

I choose to be glorious!
