THE DECISION

I decide NOT to sleep when I need to be awake
I decide NOT to listen when I should be talk
Where I should NOT talk I decide to listen
I decide NOT to ignore when I should learn
I decide NOT to cry when I should smile
Where I should create I decide NOT to kill
I decide NOT to walk when I should fly
I decide NOT to hide when I should be seen
Where I should sing, I decide NOT to hum
I decide NOT to be IN when I should be OUT
I decide NOT to quit when I should try
Where I should see I decide NOT to close my eyes
I decide NOT to stay when I should leave
I decide Not to sit when I should Dance
Where I should shout I decide NOT to whisper
I decide NOT to give excuses when I should give reasons
I decide NOT to be ruled when I should rule
Where I should be ruled I decide NOT to rule
I decide NOT to take when I should give
I decide NOT to divide when I should gather
I decide NOT to DIE when I should LIVE

I DECIDE

I want to inspire all you women out there to make a decision to excel in all your endevours. Your excellence is not to be determined by your background, up bringing or you present circumstances. It is not confined to the words of those who want you to fall, so RISE UP and DECIDE.

No Retreat, No Surrender

When we decide and choose for ourselves we can do anything!
I can feel your passion and enthusiasm!

Traci

The Decision

Traci,
When I learned that I can make my own decisions even in unfortunate circumstances...i stopped blaming people around me. Previously it was: my parents, my background, my teachers, my friends, my government did not do this and that...but now I say what can I do? It makes a difference!!!
