You Get to Decide

You are the one who gets to decide.

Yes, we are wounded. We are hurt; we’re betrayed.

Awful things happen.

The sky does fall down.

This isn’t the life we’d expected to have.

It’s not what we wanted; it’s not the life we planned.

No, we don’t get a say in the cards we are dealt.

And we don’t have control over choices others make.

But we still get to choose how we’ll play what we’re dealt.

For we hold the pen. And we write the next line.

The future is yours.

You will make it.

You’ll survive.

  1. This is so true Hope 🙂 I’m learning this more and more each day. This is changing my expectations of others as well as my desire to control other’s actions, to accept them and respond accordingly. The freedom to choose for myself and accept other’s choices is liberating. And this shows me how many choices I make each day!
