Whatever life throws at us
we have the resilience to cope
We each have the inner strength
to turn it around and become a victor

As wallowing in victimhood
fosters anger, blame and pain
By remaining there we allow
our challenge to triumph

So nurture friendships and supports
that will ensure your personal growth
Walk away from toxic situations
as life is short and we are not saviours

Beware your expectations as they mislead
Try being more objective so you can heed
any warning signs that things aren’t right
No need to get entangled or live in fright

We each have choices
best guided by our inner voices
Conquer your fears
… for we all deserve better

Daily Prompt:  Triump – inspired by those dear WP friends currently facing some tough challenges … our prayers and thoughts are with you and all those in need ..

      • Well, you have helped many, including me! I’m so glad I found your blog! Your words have been so helpful to me! 🙂

        I started blogging back in 2005 (on a different blog site) and my goals were three-fold:
        1. Get to share my writing
        2 In hopes of bringing smiles and laughs and encouragement to people
        3 and hope some of them would become friends (and I now have a number of them who I talk to on the phone, text with, e-mail with, etc.)
        HUGS!!! 🙂

        • how delightful … I guessed friends might tire of my rants when something touched me so by blogging I figured I’m not wasting hot air or paper, that those who think similarly will read and share … had no idea it would be so rich and gratifying 🙂

  2. What a thoughtful and poignant post Kate. I know of many struggling too and it’s knowing people care that can just lighten their load a little.
    Very beautifully poetic and meaningful post 💐✨✨
