Spiritual Thought: “Victim of Circumstances or Victor Over Adversities”

Blog victim or victorA “victim of circumstances or a victor over adversities.” It immediately hit me. Yes, I have a choice.

But, I have to admit that there are days when I feel a victim, trapped in an endless barrage of challenges without any way out. It is like being in a maze where every door I choose leads to a series of doors leading to more rooms where I have to contend with an enemy in each of them.

I have to admit that there are things that I can no longer change in my life such as having four kids, being a stay-at-home mom, and caring for a child with disability. I have to admit that there are things that I can no longer do because of being housebound most days taking care of a sick child.

There are days when I can see the light at the end of the tunnel but there are also days when it’s just dark clouds above my head. There are some days when I ask “Why?” and in other days I find the answers.

I don’t know what will happen tomorrow. But today, I choose to be a victor.




I am a full-time mom to four beautiful kids -- three girls and a boy. My youngest child, Miguel, has microcephaly. He was diagnosed when he was two months old. Since then, other symptoms surface such as seizures, global developmental delay, low muscle tone and neurological disorders. His doctors have not really determined the disorder causing his symptoms so it's been my quest to do my own research and help his doctors come to a final diagnosis. I started this blog to share with others lessons I've learned along the way.

  1. I am glad that you choose to be a victor today. We will never find answers to our questions, but we should not let our circumstances define us. You are stronger than you can possibly think, and writing this message proves it. I coordinate care for a lot of kids with disabilities and the past 4 years have been the most rewarding in my nursing career. I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season, just know that you are a strong person and you have a beautiful family. Thanks for sharing.


  2. I have so much admiration for the parents who have children with disabilities. A child is a child, and we love them no matter what, but when things get tough that’s when our better parts start to show!


  3. I am so glad that you are deciding to be the victor. In our lives perspective is so important. You could choose to live in sadness but instead you are choosing to fight for happiness. I hope that tomorrow you will have the strength to be the victor again. Thank-you for sharing your story of courage.


  4. I definitely have days that I feel like this and last year while I was going through postpartum depression I felt like everyone had turned their backs on me and I was a victim of no one wanting to help me out. But the I realized I had a great opportunity to be strong and to make it out on my own and I started doing what I needed to do to get myself back together!
