1° Gennaio 2012 - I get to choose



The good thing about tomorrow... it's a clean slate... brand new... totally fresh. 
And the best... I get to do whatever it is I want.
I get to choose. 
I can't change what happened in the past... I can't change all the tough stuff... or trauma or hurt. 

But I can make choices that effect how I'll live my life moving forward. 
Those things that happened... shaped who I am... they made me me... a fighter... someone who refuses to stay down no matter what. 

I learned from the streets... and from the things I had to fight... to never give up... and I learned... that things change... and they eventually do turn around for the better. 
And the thing that matters most... the people who hurt me... couldn't touch my spirit.  
I have scars on my body from what happened... but none on my soul...
I'm grateful to be alive... and for each day to draw in a breath and have  opportunities to live my best life. 
Today... I choose courage... and gratitude... I won't let what happened define who I am or dictate how I move through the world anymore. 

And I'm not alone... there are so many like me... fighters... who refuse to stay down... who're fighting to live their best lives too. 

Today... is a fresh slate and I get to choose...
