Make up your mind to overcome everything life throws at you

I may not be the best company sometimes.

I may not be strong all the time.

I may not want to talk or chat or laugh sometimes.

I may feel defeated sometimes.

I may get discouraged that things are not going according to plan.

I may doubt myself and my abilities too.

I may cry myself to sleep some nights.

I may want to be alone and lock myself up.

I may feel lost and sad sometimes.


I know I am a strong woman.

I have dealt with everything life has thrown my way.

I have faced my fears.

Sometimes, life is not easy but we keep living all the same

I have overcome my challenges.

I have laughed in the face of failure.

I have learnt from my mistakes.

I have fallen and picked myself up many times.

I have grown from things meant to break me.

I have risen above hate and discouragements.

I have laughed at my problems.

I have continued to love.

I have continued to trudge along on this rocky road called life.

I have wiped my tears.

I have encouraged myself not to give up.

Sometimes, I feel like I can no longer go on but I look back at how far I have come and tell myself to keep moving.

Sometimes, the tears threaten to blind me, but I tell myself that my future is greater than my past.

Sometimes, I feel boxed in but I break free and keep it moving.

This life is not easy, but I keep living it anyway.
I do this because this is the life I was given.

My scars are still there.

I still feel pains.

My problems still stare me in the face.

I still don’t have everything I need.

But I will continue to live this my life to the best of my ability.

This life is not easy but I choose to live mine well. It’s the only one I have.

I don’t wish to be like anybody else.

I don’t crave another person’s life.

I don’t envy anyone.

I don’t want to be average.

I want to be me.

I want to write my own story.

I want to make a mark.

I want to be the best.

I want to be remembered for being myself.

I want everything my soul yearns for.

I want all of it.

I want to have it all.

And by God, I will.
