I choose

I choose…


I am human, I fall apart, I cry, I get depressed, I feel hopeless, I ask why?


But I don’t choose to stay in that state. Yes, there are times when it gets hard, when you think the world is coming against you, that you have no friends, that no one could possibly know what you are going through….

But each and every day I wake up and I get to choose.


I choose to give thanks to God for waking me up, I choose to be grateful for what I have and not focus on what I don’t, I choose not to dwell on all that is falling apart in my life but see what is good instead…see it is a daily choice.


I choose every day not to fall into the hole of drugs and alcohol again. I choose not to intentionally hurt anyone, I choose to try to be a better person, to be a blessing to others.


I choose to be transparent, I choose to live my life without lies, without skeletons in my closet.

I choose to put my whole life out there, to show others that it’s okay to fail, to fall on your face, to keep going in spite of the pain.


I choose not to be petty, even when others are being petty to you. I choose to show love even when none is shown to me.

I choose to forgive even though my heart may be breaking, even when they shown no remorse because I need to keep growing and I know I cannot grow with hatred in my heart.


I choose to not keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again, I choose to walk away from men who clearly don’t deserve me. I choose to know my self worth.


There are some hard choices in life, there are even some you rather not make, but you must, because this is your life, you get to choose how to live it.


You can either live it big or go home… you can either hate or love…you can either forgive or be bitter…you can either sit around and cry saying poor me or you can say I am a surviver, the choice is yours.


So today my friends, I am here telling you in spite of all the pain, of all the lies and deceit, in spite of losing friends and hard times, in spite of getting my heart broken, in spite of life knocking me down yet again.

I am choosing to get back up, to say…is that all you got? Ha! Bring it on!

I am a survivor, I am a warrior, I choose to keep fighting.

I am choosing to live life to the fullest, to be present in every moment, to cut out what and who doesn’t suit me anymore.


I will continue to do my best and keep going, to pray and praise through the storm because I get to choose…and so do you…so choose wisely…remember we olny have one life to live…live it large! Be in charge!
