Affirm Victory

 

 

“When things go seriously wrong there is a strong temptation to cast oneself for a tragic role, to feel injured & embittered. Absolutely repudiate a crown of martyrdom. Try to handle the difficulty in an objective way, as though it concerned somebody else. To be tragic is to accept defeat. Affirm victory. Know & insist that you can be victorious.”

Meaningful Monday-The Pursuit Of Happiness!

 

 

“Happiness is a choice. You can choose to be happy. There’s going to be stress in life, but it’s your choice whether you let it affect you or not.”     ~Valerie Bertinelli

Ask a thousand people and they will say they wish to be happy. Happiness is often ranked just below wealth, sometimes about it, no matter the ranking they’re both usually at the top of everyone’s list and by now you should know that happiness comes when you display the ability to deal with what life throws at you instead of the absence of conflicts in your life.

No Matter Your Circumstances, Know That You Can Rise Above Them!

 

 

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.
