We are faced with challenges that can seem overwhelming and life changing. There are some people who choose to live life whining and complaining when they face challenges, while others choose to live their lives to the fullest and not let the challenges they face stop them from living life. Choose to live life no matter what challenges you encounter. I choose… to live by choice, not by chance. to be motivated, not manipulated. to be useful, not used. to make changes, not excuse. to excel, not complete. I choose self-esteem, not self pity. I choose my inner voice, not the random opinions of others.
