To Be Conscious of Me
I choose to live, and I choose what I do as I live.
I choose to move on with motivation, not because of manipulation.
I choose being useful. Not used
I choose change. I make my way around excuses.
I excel from within me, I don’t compete with what is without.
I choose self-esteem – valuing what I am even at my weakest –
not self-pity – waiting for others to value me.
I choose to listen first and foremost to my inner most voice and act on it, not the opinions or advice of others.
I choose to do the things that others won’t so I can continue to do the things others can’t.
