Queen of Your Own Life

Allow | The Battle for You

by Cindy Ratzlaff

Today I will allow new experiences to come into my life. I will not be afraid. Instead I will enjoy child-like curiosity and examine these new experiences through fresh unbiased eyes.  If not now, when?

There are days when I feel as though I need to put on my battle armor to prepare for the day ahead.  I steady my focus and charge ahead to accomplish the day’s goals.  I can feel my body tense up and my mind locks up as I put my nose to the grindstone to get it all done.  I find that this attitude is exhausting, and depletes me of my imagination, which is so important to whatever we all do everyday.

For today, I’m going to try a new tactic. I’m going to simply allow myself to experience the day as it comes my way.  Oh, I’ll still have a “to-do” list a mile long.  But I’m going to notice the small accomplishments. I’m going to delight in the check marks I put next to those things I finish.  I’m going to enjoy the process.

I know I can do this because it’s a choice.  I get to choose how I view today’s experiences. I get to decide to view the day as a stressful mess in the making or a day of interesting and challenging tasks, all of which I’m capable of managing.

I choose me and I will allow myself to feel accomplished about today.

What are you choosing today?
