You have the power to choose not to suffer

I was worried that I got it wrong

That I would get it wrong

That it is my fault

I was also making them wrong

Which got me all hot and bothered

And Anxious.

But I have the choice not to suffer

I have the choice to choose to have

A peace of mind over struggle

I can choose to

Surrender to things that I can’t control

I can choose to accept the things I cannot change

I have the courage to trust the choices I make 

I do have the power to

Let go of the negative thoughts in my head

I can choose to find Joy in my life

I am allowed to choose Joy.
