Balanced Life

I shall rise to the challenge of living a balanced life,
Controlling my thoughts and being truthful every day.
The events of the past do not define me today.
I've made amends for my errors, and now I'm acting with life expectancy.
The world is my stage and being an actor;
I would like to maintain balance in my life as a player.
I have decided to live life and face fear in choosing my tasks.
Every scare was a lesson for me, to bravely strive when people ask.
Gaining confidence, when I am crystal clear with the truth.
Yet, life makes me live happily on this earth.
I have purposefully forgiven myself and all, to live joyfully
To overcome fear and enjoy life with chivalry.
Meeting numerous people in many situations can be challenging;
But, I'll shall make sure to come across as kind and intriguing.
Focussing on changing myself instead of trying to change others’ presence.
Ultimately, a remarkable shift inside of me leading to a balanced existence.
