I’ve been trying to figure out what to write this week.
It has certainly been a week of some incredible highs and devastating lows.
Now don’t get me wrong, I have an amazing life and am surrounded by so many wonderful people. I cannot even begin to express gratitude…
But sometimes life has a way of knocking you down on the ground.
On your ass.
Life did that to me this week.
But I’m happy to say that I’m a fighter.
I always have been.
I got it from Ro. She taught me that there are some things that cannot be changed, but that doesn’t mean we lay down and die. The world can be cruel, but you can CHOOSE to be happy. You can CHOOSE to fight. You can CHOOSE to give every last ounce of your being to love yourself, and love others.
I have made a choice to fight.
And I’m lucky to be loved by SO many people, that I KNOW will fight right next to me.
I’ll leave you with the lyrics of one of my favorite songs:
“Pain throws your heart to the ground/Love turns the whole thing around/No it won’t all go the way it should/But I know the heart of life is good.”
