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.
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.
