Survivor or Just Surviving?

survivor

As humans, we all have that innate instinct to survive. There is a difference, however, to being a survivor or just surviving…or barely surviving as I hear so many say. 

When we hit bottom, or even just a low point, the survivor instinct will kick in but what you do with that is a choice. The survivor will choose to not only fight but also to see it as a lesson to learn, a way to grow, a challenge, an opportunity for better and they will smile through it. They will have gratitude for what good is still around them and they will find that good as scarce as it may be! They will also know without a shadow of a doubt that this is only temporary.

Those that choose to just survive are the ones that scrape by…barely…and see each day as a burden and they are miserable and stay in the mindset that nothing will change and they are doomed to struggle over and over. They tell themselves constantly “I can’t do this anymore, I can’t make it, I’ll never survive this” and yet they do and nothing changes. They usually fail to see the blessings that are still there around them. 

So you have a choice to be a survivor or to just survive. If just surviving works for you then stick with it….if not then it’s never too late to start becoming a survivor! Life has many battles….learn & grow or be stagnant….

I am a survivor, I am a warrior
