Pick yourself up off the ground.
Stop asking yourself “why?”
Open the curtains and let the light shine in.
Let go of the things that hold you down,
without their weight, you may fly higher than you think.
Let go of the chains that keep you isolated in your prison of despair.
Without them, the world is yours to explore.
Let go of the puzzles that are people, who breed confusion in your heart. Without their chaos, you may find peace.
Let go of the fantasy that is perfection and embrace every one of your lovely flaws.
Let go of the need to control things, you may miss out on life’s great surprises.
Let it all go, sometimes it hurts more to hold on.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
I’ve known sadness but have also known true happiness.
I’ve climbed mountains but have also fallen from grace.
I’ve traveled and seen many wonderful places but I’ve also stood still and spent time with my inner demons.
I’ve walked alone but I’ve also held the hand of truly wonderful people.
I’ve known confusion but I’ve also found clarity in the place where confusion grows.
I’ve given life but have also been close to death.
I’ve held onto hope even through my darkest hours, when the odds were against me.
I’ve let go of the past and have embraced the future.
I’ve shed tears of sorrow but today my eyes fill with tears of joy.
I”ve searched for love and finally found it, within myself.
This is the first day of the rest of my life.
