“I am Marvelous” by Shiloh Sophia
“Today I choose.
I have chosen to be the queen of my kingdom.
To name me as the ruler of my life.
I will not wait for the approval of others.
I choose to listen to this big heart within me.
I have chosen to occupy this space in this Universe.
I don’t keep my gifts hidden any longer.
I don’t allow fear to hinder my greatness.
I have chosen to be as wonderful as I truly am.
I don’t judge myself for the path I have not yet taken, or for the way I have behaved so far.
I choose to forgive myself and release the old stories
to make room for new stories, for legends to emerge.
I will not abandon my dreams and visions.
I will think with my thoughts.
I chose to fall in love with who I am, as I am, right now.
To embrace the messy and wonderful world inside of me.
I won’t diminish my light, one more day. You hear me now.
I let go of the shadows. I open my hands. I open my heart.
I choose to see myself, and to be seen by you too.
I choose to see myself as everything, holy, worthy, and wildly me.
This is more than enough. I chose to be scandalous!
Being Wonderful is not a defect.
It’s a choice.
You hear me now.
Are you ready for this? I am. Today I choose.
I have chosen to be Wonderful!”
