She chose to be strong.

She knew she had the choice.

She chose to make it through this downfall. 

She chose to be strong.

· She knew she could become weak; But she had the choice to be at the peak.

· She knew she could rest; But she had the choice to be the best.

· She knew she could give up; But she had the choice to stand up.

· She knew she could wither away; But she had the choice to shimmer away.

· She knew she could hide; But she had the choice to fight what’s inside.

· She knew she could be ordinary; But she had the choice to be legendary.

· She knew she could be a dead soul; But she had the choice to achieve her goal.

· She knew she could only crave; But she had the choice to be brave.

· She knew she could be cold; But she had the choice to be bold.

· She knew she could degrade herself; But she had the choice to embrace herself.

· She knew she could be trapped away; But she had the choice to fly away.

· She knew she could cry all day; But she had the choice to laugh everyday.

· She knew she could walk away; But she had the choice to find another way.

· She knew she could close all the doors; But she had the choice to explore the abandoned floors.

· She knew she could not withstand the storm; But she had the choice to be the storm.

· She knew she could be a survivor; But she had the choice to be the warrior.

•She knew she had the choice; and so she chose to be strong•

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
