We can’t always control what life throws our way, however we CAN choose how we react to it. We CAN have the life we have always imagined even if things don’t go as planned.
You decide who you want to become and you decide how you get there. It’s not necessarily the reality that shapes us, but the lens through which your brain views the world that shapes your reality.
Everyone’s life comes with their fair share of trials and tribulations. We can be on top of the world one minute, only to come crashing down the next.
It is in the crash that we have one of the most clear choices life will ever present—be the victim or be the victor.
And what I've found is that there is something incredible that is woven in the choice to be victorious over tragedy. It is a choice of self love that we are worth enough to make the most out of the devastation.
It started out as little daily choices to be the victor instead of the victim—writing in my gratitude journal when I could have stayed sulking in bed, believing I COULD DO it when everyone else told me I couldn't, trusting in the innate power of resilience to break through the yellow tape of recovery and healing, and a choice to accept my new life.
So wherevever you stand (or sit or lay) on this walk of life today, recognize the daily choices as they present themselves to be the victim or be the victor.
