From a ritual/moment of reclaiming this past October:
As I claim my wild brilliance, I claim my internal world, its depths and its caverns.
I claim what I learn and know in my quiet moments.
I claim an uneven path.
I know that there are many unknowns,
and I let go of holding onto what was
and what might have been.
I let go of “shoulds.”
I call in embracing what is
so I may, in time, create what will be.
I claim this time and space to heal.
I deserve this life, and
I deserve to live it on my own terms,
to stand for myself
past, present, and future.
