Noun. I’m no longer willing to sit in my past watching everything I did wrong pass by me. Instead of feeling shame, I'm choosing love. It's a choice that has to be made often but it gets easier the more I'm aware of how I'm talking to myself. I'm choosing to give myself love by living in the present. When I get caught up in an anxious thought, I respond with forgiveness instead of judgment. I sit outside as often as I can because I feel better. When I sit outside, I'm present. I feel the warm air on my skin, I breathe in the alluring smells of nearby flowers. I can sit with a book and be totally happy.
