It’s Time To Reclaim Yourself

It’s time to reclaim your heart. It’s time to let go of all the heaviness loaded in it. It’s time heal it, it’s time to take it back from those who broke it and it’s time to make it yours again. It’s time to protect it from all the liars, all the cheaters and all the ones who don’t intend to love it.

It’s time to reclaim your mind. It’s time to train it to believe again. It’s time to start thinking that you can instead of you can’t. It’s time to start saying that you deserve it instead of doubting yourself. It’s time to stop belittling yourself just so you can please others. It’s time to replace the thoughts that hold you back with thoughts that empower you to become everything you always wanted to be and inspire you to go after every single one of your dreams. It’s time to start thinking that you deserve to live the life of your dreams.

It’s time to reclaim your soul. It’s time to cleanse it. It’s time to go find what really speaks to it, what moves it, what opens it up. It’s time to reclaim the faith you lost in God, yourself and the world. It’s time to go on a spiritual journey to find your calling, to let go of the past, to forget the pain and it’s time to find the light again. It’s time to abandon the emptiness you feel inside and find meaning, find purpose, find depth and find fulfillment.

It’s time to reclaim your strength. It’s time to leave rock bottom and get back up. It’s time to treat your anxiety or your depression or whatever it is that has been preventing you from finding happiness. It’s time to make a comeback if you’ve been hiding and it’s time to shine if you’ve been avoiding the light. It’s time to start over. It’s time to say the hard goodbyes and welcome new hellos. It’s time to learn the hard lessons and prepare yourself for the next test.

It’s time to reclaim everything you lost when you lost your voice.

It’s time to reclaim the parts of yourself that you gave away to people who couldn’t keep them. It’s time to reclaim your self-worth again because you’ve always been enough and you’ve always been resilient. It’s time to remember what sets you apart. It’s time to love yourself all over again.
