What would you like to stop doing? - Burning Question

Here is a list of things that I would really like to - once and for all - STOP doing.

  • Not going pee during the day because I am too busy to take the time.
  • Making excuses for not going to that lunch time yoga class.
  • Saying ‘yes’ when I really want to say ‘no’.
  • Forgetting to be kind to myself.
  • Shutting up and smiling when I really want to speak out.
  • Getting less than adequate hours of sleep every night.
  • Constantly worrying that other people are mad at me.
  • Forgetting to be kind to myself.
  • Giving away my power and letting other people make me feel small.
  • Sharing too much of my heart with people who don’t really give a shit.
  • Being so hard on myself for mistakes of my past.
  • Forgetting to be kind to myself.
  • Putting off stopping in at my Grandma’s house for tea.
  • Devaluing the importance of picking up the phone to have a chat with an old friend.
  • Forgetting that there are limits to what I can control.
  • Feeling so self conscious all the time.
  • Forgetting to be kind to myself.
  • Selling myself short.
  • Letting the wrong people into my Soul House then politely watch as they start fuckin with my shit.
  • Worrying more about what others think than what I know to be true for me.
  • Forgetting to be kind to myself.
  • Letting things distract me from doing what really brings me peace.
  • Rushing around constantly trying to catch up to life and trying to keep up with all our commitments that I forget the importance of just stopping to be present in this moment.
  • Forgetting to be kind to myself.
  • Lying in bed at night thinking of all the things I should have done, but just didn’t get to.
  • Shame…  Feeling it, inflicting it, witnessing it, being anywhere near it.
  • Putting on those damn terrorist glasses and seeing myself and the world through their tainted lenses.
  • Forgetting to be kind to myself… especially when I forget and then go and do something that I so publicly said I wanted to stop doing.
Today is Day one.  The day that I break away from all that is holding me back to grab onto all that will pull me forward. 

The day that I remember that I get to choose. 
I choose love.
I choose life. 
I choose joy.
I choose happiness.
I choose laughter. 
I choose kindness.
I choose forgiveness.
I choose bliss.

I choose peace.

The cage is open.
