She chose to listen to herself again.
She chose to see herself again.
She decided to be done with her old unhealthy unraveling ways.
She moved on from thoughts that kept her caged, messy and small.
She forgave herself for her past mistakes.
She thanked the hard spaces for all that they taught her.
She held the people and dreams that she loved a little closer.
She shed the layers that no longer served her new skin.
She didn’t look back.
She no longer held herself back.
She moved her body, her energy, her hopes.
She cleared her space to make more room for peace and bigger ideas.
She decided to point her arrow upward.
She transformed her pain into power.
She owned her magic.
She was done with apologizing for all that made her her.
She trusted the rhythm of her life.
She knew that she was born to turn ash into fire.
She took a deep breath.
And she at last became all that she was always meant to be.
