You ALWAYS Have a Choice

You can do what you want.  You do not need my permission, or anyone else’s for that matter (despite what they may say).  You don’t have to sit in school.  You do it because you know, in the long run, it’s best for you.  You don’t have to be kind to your sister, but hopefully, you are as life is nicer when people are getting along.  You always have a choice.  You are not a victim.  We all have things we are forced to “get through.”  It doesn’t stop when you are a grown up.  In fact, the stuff you must get through are harder: divorce, crippling old age, death.  You cannot escape dealing with pain, my sweet sisters.  But you can learn to handle it with grace.  One way to do that is to remind yourself of your choices.  You always have them.  Keep an eye out.  You choose what kind of life you have – everyday.  I want to best for you, so choose well.  Xxoo
