A special colleague of mine shared the following quote with me. See if it makes you pause and reflect. Take a moment to read this slowly and feel the meaning for you …
I choose to live by choice not by chance, to make changes not excuses, to be motivated not manipulated, to be useful not be used, to excel not to compete.
I choose self-esteem not self-pity, I choose to listen to my inner voice and not the random opinions of others.

You choose so much in your life, more than you may realize. You do have control over how you live your life, and how you choose your thoughts. If you choose to play the victim role, that is a choice you are making. How are you choosing to live your life?
