Because you never know where life is gonna take you
But today, I have the opportunity to choose
Here I am now looking at thirty, and I got so much to say
I was always too concerned about what everybody would think

Ain't nothing gonna happen unless I decide
(I choose) to be authentic in everything (I do)
(I choose)
I don' been through some painful things I thought that I would never make it through
I've put myself in so many chaotic circumstances

I'm dropping these bags, I'm making room for my joy
And you can't change where you've been
'Cause life is gonna do what it do

I don't need to change the way that I live just to get a man, no
From this day forward, every decision that I make will be my own
(And I choose) to be the best that I can be
My past don't dictate who (I am)

(I choose) to be authentic in everything (I do)
(I choose)
