A “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.
