I choose clarity, not fogginess.
I choose stability, not shaking ground.
I choose lightness, not heaviness.
I choose my authenticity and not just to please.
I choose honesty, not misconstrued perceptions or stories.
I choose what is real for me, not what is real for another.
I choose focus, to pour all my energy into acknowledging what I have created and what I continually create, not what I otherwise could have done.
I choose to take pride, in every choice I have made thus far, not self-sabotage or awkward shame.
I choose trust, that the universe, life always has my back.
I choose humility, that I am always learning, not righteous knowingness.
I choose to always attract lovingness, not petty competition, threat or jealousy.
I choose warmth, closeness and sincerity, not seemingly coldhearted token gestures and niceties.
I choose mutual respect, that each of us exist in our own right and alongside each other, standing tall.
I choose to see the good and the bad in myself and in others, without compromising my love for myself nor them.
I choose only to share my light even in sadness.
I choose not to be better than you,
for in you is another version of me
and you are only ever as good as
I can be.
