Take no prisoners.

The word of the day is SURRENDER:

As defined by the dictionary as to declare yourself defeated: to declare to an opponent that he or she has won so that fighting or conflict can cease

give up possession of something: to relinquish possession or control of something because of coercion or force.

It all sounds rather negative to me. So how can I SURRENDER to my higher power? Who do I surrender too? The nagging fear of loss keeps me from letting go.

I have surrendered in small isolated instances in the past. I have surrendered to an audience of thousands and felt them lift me to unexpected heights. I have surrendered in silence to a soul mate in a simple gaze. There is electricity in the air and my body adsorbs every bit of energy in the room. It is exhilarating and yet I still struggle to allow myself to feel that on a daily basis. I remind myself that I am worthy and deserve all that life has to offer. Yet I struggle. The conflict is real.

But I realize that there is no outside force or foe.The battle is with myself and  I am in fact the one I need to surrender to.

I surrender this day to my higher self. It is not a loss. It is a gift.I am not defeated, I am the victor.

I will not allow conflict with myself to rule my day. Being kind to me and making healthy choices throughout my day is not something I have to coerce or force myself to do. It is a honor and a privilege  and worth taking the time to do.

There is absolute freedom in ultimate surrender.

I love each and every one of you

Juliana
