Let it go

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen.
A kingdom of isolation,
and it looks like I'm the Queen
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn't keep it in;
Heaven knows I've tried

Don't let them in,
don't let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don't feel,
don't let them know
Well now they know

Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore

Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care
what they're going to say
Let the storm rage on.
The cold never bothered me anyway

It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all

It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me,
I'm free!

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You'll never see me cry
Here I stand
And here I'll stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I'm never going back, the past is in the past

Let it go, let it go
And I'll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone
Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on

The cold never bothered me anyway!

Sometimes we judge ourselves pretty harshly. We blame myself for things we have no control over. We criticize and treating ourselves far worse than we would ever treat anyone else. It's easy to hold ourselves to high standards, and get disappoint if we fail to meet them. 

Perhaps the key to silencing the enemy is accepting all of ourselves including both darkness and light within us, the learning to create a higher ratio of self-diminishing thoughts. Maybe the goal shouldn't be always high but to recognize when we start being self-critical so that we can shift our thoughts more quickly and effectively with each internal struggle.

Despite the criticisms, ignorance, disappointments and emo, please do not give up to try again and again. I am trying to focus on progress, not perfection - to forgive myself when I have gotten negative, let it go let it go, and then start anew right where I stand.
"Don't be too hard on yourself, there are plenty of people willing to do that for you. Love yourself and be proud of everything that you do. Even mistakes mean you are trying. When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you"
Take a stop, find a reason to be happy, be yourself, tomorrow is a better day :)
