Victorious

I have conquered many things.
Many things indeed.

Things that tried to strip away my joy + happiness.
Things that tried to rip away my sovereignty.
Things that tried to keep me small.
Things that tried to conquer me.
Things I never thought I’d be able to see the other side.
Silly things, really.

Thing is, I’m resilient.
I’m a Priestess.

I am strong.
I am powerful.
I am a sorceress.
A medicine woman.

I’ve slayed many dragons.
Climbed many mountains.
Transmuted fears, doubts, and insecurities, time and time again.

You see,
All is coming up to the surface to be healed and transmuted.
All is coming up to build the queendom on solid ground.
All is coming up to hold space for those I’ll meet along the way.

Yes, lessons are being taught.
Yes, patience pays.
Yes, it’s always darkest before the dawn.

You see, I know where I’m going.
I know who holds the key.

I’m the one writing the story here.
I’m the one who gets to say “no, thank you.”
I’m the one who decides my perception. My beliefs. 
How I experience this breath.
This moment. This experience.

I am a Sovereign Goddess.
No one can take that away from me.
I am free to be who I choose to be.
And for me, I choose to be victorious.
I choose to be me.
