dignity is a choice

those are the words that i heard this weekend, while sitting at home, recoping and they really struck a chord you know

i have said this many times that we have choices to make in life, we chose to be happy or sad...yea sometimes its harder to make the choice because other people or circumstances around you seem to make the choice for you...but still in the end it all boils down to how YOU react to something and how YOU handle what troubles life throws your way...

so i chose to be dignified and understand that i am not perfect, but that i love me in my perfect imperfections...that i'll be hurt sometimes and sometimes i'll hurt others...but that as long as my heart is in the right place and as long as i am willing to keep trying to be the BEST TC that i can be...that's all i can do

you can't change how others see things, you can't change how others feel...the only thing you can do is pick yourself up and dust yourself off and keep going...

so i guess i'll put on my "BIG GURL DRAWERS" and keep it moving...

there is a lot that i don't particularly like about my life right now, but I am going to take the necessary steps to make the necessary changes....

because in the end, it all boils down to me...so time to make that change

Very true! Despite the circumstances, you still have to get out of bed and walk with your head held high. It's easier said than done to NOT let things get the best of you, but we are human, how do you just NOT do that? I've found myself at a different stance in my life where everything is starting to bother me. Now I want to know how to reverse it, I was better at the old nonchalant KJB.

Oh, you're the girl for playing that song. I so love it.

This is an outstanding post and one that speaks volumes. It's very important to use our choices wisely and to be proactive in the steps we take in life.

I love how you continue to capture the depth of who you are and be happy with the woman in the mirror even when you see things are wrong.

This is inspirational.

Love!

I like this post and I like the realization at the end..it is about you and only you and I know that no matter how things pan out YOU will do YOU...

Good post my TC...(like the way I show possession like you're only my sis? suck it up)

Tiff...u have to base decisions on how u feel. To hell with anyone who tells u to "suck it up" or "get over it"...whatever u r going through...go through the motions andmake whatever
decision(s) is best for u. Keep your head up lady.

@kjb-i think i like you caring, we are supposed to care, but it can be rough at times...it can be rough

@bap-i guess the truth will set me free...

@blu-thank you...i am glad it was inspirational

@ci-yes you may claim me...yes baby girl i will do me!

@trapped-yea you do have to go through the motions, one of my mentors and i just had that conversation, like you need to just go ahead and fall and take the beating so you can pick yourself up again and stop trying to fight it and i think she is totally right!
