Choices

via Daily Prompt: Or

choice

First and foremost on this Veterans Day thank you to all those today who served and continue to serve.

I can choose to sulk or I can accept what has been handed to me and persevere.

I can choose to cry or I can dry my tears and move forward.

I can choose to be angry or I can find the compassion within me to accept you.

I can choose to hate you or I can choose to forgive you and move on.

I can choose to shut down or I can choose to love again.

I’ll choose acceptance, compassion, forgiveness and love, every time, even if it is the hardest choice I have to make.

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. Navigating the dating waters in my forties isn't easy but hey what in life is? My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

  1. It is true that the only person that can control how we feel, is ourselves.

    Great piece! It took me nearly 30 years to realize that only I can decide who has the power to hurt me. In fact, I just wrote about this. I invite you to read the piece at: https://perfectlyimperfect32wordpresscom.wordpress.com/2016/11/09/the-apologies-that-never-come-and-why-were-better-off-without-them-httpsblackcattwriting-wordpress-com20160804apology/comment-page-1/#comment-113
