The Simple Life

I choose to BELIEVE


There is a lot going on around me

Some I understand some I don’t

Some I can stand, some I can’t

I choose to BELIEVE

===

I watch my son growing and changing,

I see my pals dealing with life,

I capture my siblings work through challenges

I choose to BELIEVE

===

I judge my own responses to life,

I realise that I must find balance

I understand clarity is from within

I choose to BELIEVE

===

I look back at my life on a daily basis,

I assess my choices,

I see the places I could have done better

I choose to BELIEVE

===

I choose to work on me,

I deal with my consistent failing,

I celebrate the successes

I choose to BELIEVE

===

Though I am not where I want to be

Even as I am not where God has said we are going,

I have grown and moved and so it isn’t all lost.

I choose to BELIEVE

===

I see I will never know everything

There are things that I cannot change about me

I am who I am because of these

I choose to BELIEVE

===

I must give others room to fail

I must extend grace to receive grace.

I must forgive to be forgiven

I choose to BELIEVE

===

I am not perfect

I must allow myself to be imperfect.

I forgive the imperfection

I choose to BELIEVE

===

The permission to be less than perfect

Keeps me laser focused on growing

Allows me to be gentler with me

I choose to BELIEVE

===

I understand I am a work in progress

Even as the internal standard is set,

I still have growing

I choose to BELIEVE

===

I am not as hard and judgemental on me as before

I am easier to live with in relation to myself

I hope that makes sense now

Why I choose to BELIEVE
