New rules

I spent a lot of my life...
 trying to color inside the lines, 
ignoring the God-given gift called "intuition",
playing by rules that make no sense to my soul, 
pleasing others rather than taking care of myself,
making myself small so others won't feel threatened. 

And in the process, I lost myself...

But when I got sick and tired of the old rule book, 
I threw it out and wrote a new one that goes like this... 

I am kind to myself,
I don't care to be perfect, 
I trust what my gut tells me, 
and I let myself shine...
