When life happens you have two choices,
You can cower down and try to avoid it,
Or you can meet it head on, taking the good with the bad.
As life happens, you can gripe about the obstacles,
Or you can be diligent in getting over them.
When love happens, you can love with everything that's in you,
Or you could remain emotionally unavailable and alone.
When death happens, you can grieve forever and crawl up inside yourself,
Or you could cherish the memories of those who have passed.
While life is happening, live it to the fullest,
Live as if every day was your last,
Or you can live every day in fear of stepping out.
Regardless of how you choose to live it,
Life happens! So live admirably.
