When I saw this picture, it Inspired this post. It may be a little wordy but it will definitely be worth it 🙂
See, Nobody on this earth makes it out Alive! We ALL are going to Die someday. We do not know when that someday is for any of us. Someone, you, me, your neighbor, friend, classmate etc could go any minute today, tomorrow or next year. I know that sounds scary, but the truth is the truth. That part, quite honestly, shouldn’t even really be a concern to you because the time and place is 100% out of your control. God has the final say and it is already written as to when your time is up.
So, what is the point of all this Tammy? Yes I know it is a gloomy way to start of a blog, but there really is an Awesome point to be made. No we may not have control over when we die, But….. What we do have absolutely 100% control over is what We DO and who we Become from NOW until the day we die! Now, Seriously… How Freaking Awesome is That! (Imagine Me doing my Happy Dance right now! Ha!)
You have a choice to make. Are you gonna put your head down and just shuffle your feet one day at a time, complaining how miserable you are and how life ahs dealt you a “RAW DEAL“? Is that what you’re doing Right Now? Well you know what…. SHUT UP!!! Yes, you can go back and read that again in ALL Caps, Bold & Underlined and Imagine Me Yelling at you!!! SHUT UP!!!! See, the only person responsible for your Situation is YOU! Not your mom, your dad, your cousin, aunt, uncle, sister, brother, pastor, teacher, etc. Those are people who are “Influences” in your life! Those influences may be positive or negative! You are in total control of what you listen to and accept in your life, NOT Them.
Here’s the deal, you have a God Given, Divine Right to “CHOOSE” how your life goes. How you React or Respond to the Good or Bad situations that happen in your life is up to YOU and You Only! Yes, sometimes bad things happen to good people and we have Zero control over that! What we do have control over is to properly “Respond” and say “This was not anything that I could control and I am okay with that!! It does not Define who I am but it does make me stronger because I Survived it for a Reason“!!!
How do I know this to be true? Because I have personally lived thru just that. See, my 1st childhood memories, are of me being sexually abused from about ages 3 or 4ish on and off until it finally ended when I was 13. I do not have too many happy memories as a young child that I can remember at the moment. But, what I do know, is that God Protected me from all that pain, physical & mental, by making me black it out until I was an adult and he knew I was able to hand the reality of it all. I made a conscious CHOICE to NOT let my past, that I had ZERO control over, determine who I am or could Become! Nor would I let it hold me captive as a victim in my own mental prison. Now there is a lot more to that part of the story of my life that I will reveal in another post, which will Greatly Shock you as to how I am still Standing here Loving and Embracing life to the fullest Every Single Day!
As I said, I am living, breathing proof that Bad things can sometimes happen to Good People and you can make an Amazing life for yourself.
