I have always been attracted to quotes and sayings and if you follow me on Pinterest, you will know just how much I like quotes. Looking through various quotes on Pinterest the other day I came across this one, "People too often forget that it is your own choice how you want to spend the rest of your life." (Rachel Wolchin) This one has been rattling around in my brain ever since I read it. Especially since so many people I know are accepting their life right now and blaming their "bad fortune" on others. This quote reminds me that we are all in charge of our own life. We have the power to change it. We have the power to say this isn't good enough and then work towards making it so. Our life and how we live it is our choice. I do believe you can choose happiness. Sure, others may influence our life for a bit but, if they are not contributing in a positive manner towards your happiness it is up to you to make a change. Never settle for less than what you deserve. Find something that inspires you, something that reminds you that you deserve to live happy, and keep it near you always. Don't let yourself settle. Live, love, and be happy.

A bit about me:
I am who I am thanks to God, my parents, my family, and my friends. My life is driven by faith. Oh, and I am a cancer survivor.
