Only You

A person can make you feel high,
A person can make you feel low.
But only you can decide
Which way you want to go.

A person can hurt you mentally,
A person can hurt you physically.
But only you can place
A limit on your abilities.

A person can cause drama,
A person can cause a situation.
But only you can create
Your own reputation.

A person can make you laugh,
A person can make you cry.
But only you can make decisions for your life.

I guess what I'm trying to say,
That when your living day to day.
Don't live by what people do,
But live by what you know is true.


Always be true to yourself, never doubt your worth, and always remember that only you can decide how you react to a situation. Life may throw us a curve, but we can overcome anything with the right attitude. Never give up!

My Best to You Always,

Well said...made me think of my facebook friends notes..
~Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
~ Watch your words, for they become actions.
~ Watch your actions, for they become habits.
~ Watch your habits, for they become character.
~ Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

Have a wonderful Friday...

How true!
I recently had someone do all the above with the exception of getting physical, but they tried to do so.
They did their best to make my life a living hell.
I'll never undestand how someone could be so self centered and evil!
I refuse to let what they have done bring me down.
As a matter of fact it has made me more determend to soar!
