Living Is A Choice~Birthday Reflections

Birth is not a choice we get to make, we are brought into this world 
Some simply come into this life to exist only for the sake of existing
Others will choose to make this world a better place, living it in full
How we embrace our course is up to us, no one can decide but you
Will you elect to be a person who conquers the world each day here?
Touching the lives of those you come into contact with, uplifting them
Bring light to the dark, laughter to the sad, love to the broken-hearted
Looking at the world, see the good and the beautiful, embracing it all
Birth is not a choice we get to make, but choosing to live is one we make daily!


Today is my birthday, and as I reflect on life and how many ups and downs that it brings. One thing that I have come to realize is that every day is a choice. Will I choose to get up and live life, making the best of every circumstance that I face? Life throws many things at us, it is how we react to them that can make or break us. So as I go into another year of life, I will again choose to keep living. It is a conscious decision, one that is not always the easier path. In fact, really never easier. But, I know that through this life, I will have an impact and I will make a difference. These are things that I strive for, I hope to obtain. What will you do with the life you have been given? I hope that you will shine on! ©
