I Know Who I am

"I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become."
Life changes. I get it all lined up just the way I like it and then something beyond my control comes along and bumps my off center. How nice it would be if I could get everything just the way I want it and say “okay, now.. stay!” 
But nothing stays the same. 
I grow up, make friends, lose friends, go to college, lose track of people, meet new ones and sometimes I ask yourself why. But then I learn that every single experience I go through changed me in some way. Every new person who comes into my life changes me. Every moral dilemma or emotional experience I come up against changes you. It’s my job to decide what I choose to become.
