Today I woke up and I was everything
I wanted to be.
I forgave myself of everything
that had ever made me feel ashamed.
I loved everyone everywhere…
even those who hurt me.
I sent love to those
who have lost their way.
I wasn’t afraid…
of anything anymore.
I realized… I was endowed with all the power of the Universe,
to think… to feel… and create,
and to love all that I have created.
I reveled… in the realization that this…
is the sum total of all
I have intended for myself to date.
I realized… that right NOW is the only moment
there ever really is, was, or will be.
I knew… that all my past,
except what was good, was gone.
I made a pact with myself never to forget…
to hold this feeling as if it were a little child…
for indeed, it was.
