Every human has what it takes to battle through adversity. However, adversity always brings us to a moment of choice.
A moment when we choose to be a victim or a victor.
A moment when we choose to press forward or to remain still.
A moment when we choose to win or we choose to be defeated.
We ALL have to face adversity – MANY TIMES! Some of us will choose to “fight” and as a result, we become tougher. Some of us will choose to be pitiful, throw a pity party, feel sorry for ourselves, quit, and drown!
Some of us choose to drown. Drown in our own sorrow. Drown in our own tears. Drown in the same adversity that thousands of other humans chose to swim out of.
If you’re going through something, stop feeling sorry for yourself. You are human, and trust me – you can get through this. But only if you choose to!
