“One day she finally grasped that unexpected things were always going to happen in life. And with that, she realized the only control she had was how she choose to handle them.

So, she made the decision to survive using courage, humor, and grace. She was the Queen of her own life and the choice was hers.” ~ Queenism
The choice to move forward amongst the obstacles in life has empowered me. As cliche as it sounds, everything happens for a reason. A reason for today’s experiences-the days to come, and the months proceeding- I am unintentionally choosing to wake up and push past the emotions, feelings, and aching heart that life may bring. But simply, I am choosing to be happy.

I choose. And as the statement is possessive, it simply speaks to the control I have for my emotions and life. Because I am a person worth someone’s time. I am a woman who has built herself up from the bottom after being emotionally, mentally, and spiritually destroyed from the many pitfalls that life has brought. And as I choose to be happy, that also comes with choosing “to be”. To be what “I” want to be: happy, sad, angry, etc., but all in my decision, and not left up to the actions of another. I simply choose to be the Queen of my life.
