It’s not the life we were  given

when we were sent down from heaven

that will determine our fate in the vast eternity.

It will be the choices we make

and all the little steps we take

to rise above and make better wherever we may be.

Don’t wait for a hero to save you

there is no excuse not to do –

be brave, dig deep and find the power within.

Only you can rise above

and make your life about love

even if you have to come from behind to win!

  1. There just seems to be a lot of victims out there always blaming someone or something for their circumstance. I hate when I fall into that “Pity me” trap. Bleah! As my grandma used to say, “You have two feet on the ground – you can do it!”
