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! ©

Reflect Upon

“It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way. To keep your truth in sight you must keep yourself in sight and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image; the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.” ~C. JoyBell C.

Counterfeit Identity

Counterfeit Identity

A face in the mirror, Eyes piercing through me

I do not know who you are.

Peering as if into my very soul, Boring ever deeper

I am frozen from existence.

Trying to speak, To question this pretender

She walks away from the mirror.

But I must remain, Lost to my reality

Caught within my own reflection.

Reflections Through The Pane

Reflections Through The Pane

Peering through the window pane

I reflect on the day that’s passed

My tears fall gently, silently

I am touched by hues of color

__________

The tree reflects on year gone by

Day is ending, darkness is at bay

Its leaves begin to fall like rain

There is beauty in the pain
