Your story was not written by you. You may have forgotten that as you looked to the world to define you. Take the pen and begin again with the ink of free will. Choose not to wear your story like an old pair of pants that are tattered and ill fitting. Choose instead to courageously go through your “closet” and, with determination, throw out what no longer suits you nor fits your tastes today. Let the story you re-write breathe and give it room to bend to the winds of change and the flexibility to allow for choice as you desire them.
Let go of anger that blocks your ability to speak your truth. Let go of sadness that prevents love from flowing in or out of your heart. Let go of loneliness that impedes a friendship with yourself to grow.
When you finally decide to give it all up, to do the work to grow and evolve, like the Phoenix rising out of the ashes, you ascend reborn, completely liberated, refreshed and free.
