Friday Frills


I choose…
To live by choice, not by chance. 
To make changes, not excuses. 
To be motivated, not manipulated. 
To be useful, not used. 
To excel, not compete. 
I choose self-esteem, not self pity. 
I choose to listen to my inner voice...
And not the random opinion of others.

Denise said...

Oh, wow, and wow again! This is fantastic! My favorite sentences, although everything was, are these ones: "To be motivated, not manipulated. To be useful, not used."And then I read "listen to your inner voices, not the random opnion of others." Yes, totally true! Just now I wrote someone that we don't have to be follow everything the society wants for us, and I was not understood... well, a very traditonal person, I respect, of course. But I don't have to pretend I agree with the person, right? Then I saw: used as a funny doll. My opinions arenot wanted, or too different for "that" society.
Have a great weekend and waiting for new Friday Frills, that I love!
