I’m alive.

To me…

Surviving with my life is everything.

When fear tries to keep me down…

This is what I come back to.

I am alive.

My story isn’t over.

I haven’t lost yet.

Every breath.

Every step.

Every choice.


I know sorrow.

I know pain.

But every set back is a step forward…

Every failure is a lesson.

There is no end.

As long as you have breath in your lungs…

There’s a chance.

A chance to create the life you want.

One you could love.

The tears and despair…

I know they will always be there in some ways…

But love.

My love for my life.

For myself.

For what matters to me.

That is what matters.

That gives me a reason to be here.

To keep going when everything feels lost.

Because life is a gift.

A beautiful gift.

And no one knows how long we have.

So if given the choice…

I am choosing life.

I am choosing love.
