It happens to all of us sometimes.
We can feel like vicitms to circumstance.
When something outside of our control happens to us.
Yet in that feeling we miss a great opportunity.
The chance to learn from the situation and be empowered.
To grow and take responsibility for how we are showing up in the moment.
We may not be able to control our outside circumstances.
The situation may be way beyond our control
We always have control over how we show up in the moment.
It is our work to make a that choice.
To respond instead of just reacting to what is going on around us.
We can respond to fear with hope.
It is a choice to respond to anger with understanding.
To choose not to be a victim.
And by doing so we not only help ourselves, we can inspire others as well.
We can affect the world around us.
By choosing how we show up in the moment.
By deciding what we are going to do.
When we show up as creators in our life, we effect what happens next.
We also stand as a role model for others.
It is our choice to see things a different way.
Our responsibility to move forward.
And when we do, life will meet us and support us.
So where in your life can you take responsibility for your responses?
Where can you turn around feeling like a victim to knowing that you are a creator?
