Why am I so happy? Because I fought for it.
I lived a hard life, I struggled, yet endured, I lost, yet found love, I have been through trials galore in my life. The word GALORE does not even seem "adequate" enough to describe my life.
I have learned that blessings come after the trial of our faith.
I have learned that life gives you pistachios you can't open, coconut you can't drink, and people that teach you a lesson. Every person that comes into our lives will either make a difference in our lives or we will make on in theirs. Sometimes, we end up making a difference in someone unrelated, watching the whole thing like a movie with soda and popcorn.
I am not just a whimsical, silly, girl, blissfully dancing and prancing around in my head like "lalala such is life, everything is beautiful, no care, no worries,no cares, be happy"
Such is not true. I have walked through fire and not been burned. But then again, I have gotten singed a few times. I have been at the depths of despair, homeless, hungry, not knowing, what I would do or how I would pay a bill, loss and hurt and heartache so deep I thought my heart literally broke.
Yes, my friends, I have gone through the worst of the worst than most could imagine...and oh how those things shaped me.
My past does not define me. My trials did NOT overcome me.
"I" overcame my past, my trials, my loss, my heartaches, my pain...BY CHOICE.
I choose to not be miserable.
I choose to see the sunshine.
I choose to relentlessly strive for happiness.
I chose to take the ashes and become a Phoenix.
I choose to Be Fabulous.
and you can too
