A year ago I was at a crossroads with a decision to make.  This decision had the potential to alter my life, my plans, and everything I had dreamed of up to that point.  The decision was mine, but it would require me to walk in strength, dignity, and grace to make it to the other side! In the moment I wasn’t sure I had what it would take to follow-through with a decision that would lead me down a path I had not planned on taking. This decision would force me to reevaluate my dreams…my worth…everything!

During this transition I had a friend say to me ,“You have to decide who you want to be one hear from now. You can choose how you want to respond to today’s concerns depending on how you want to see yourself reflected one year from now.”

Her words pierced my heart and remained with me throughout all of 2016. No matter what I faced I made it my number one goal to continue to respond to every circumstance with noble character and sustainable love. I wanted to be known as a woman of strength and dignity not a woman who chose to shrink back when life got hard. It is easy to wallow in all of life’s W O E S instead of choosing to persevere and learn to turn everything into an opportunity for growth.

You do not have to sit back and let life happen to you.

You do not have to sit around and let your greatest fears become a reality in your daily life. 

Although you cannot always control the ups and downs of life you can control your reaction and your response. You can choose to let life overtake you or you can choose to take life one day at a time finding joy in every circumstance.
