Cry For Me

There are plenty of things in life that aren’t within your control. You can’t control other people, or how the world around you operates. You can however, always choose your attitude. Choosing to go through life with a positive attitude and a desire to be a survivor rather than a victim is up to you. No matter how bad things are, you always have choices. You can choose to get back up when life pushes you down. Choose to not be a victim of circumstances. Don’t waste time wishing things were different or insisting that life isn’t fair. Life wasn’t meant to be fair. It was meant to be lived, no matter what circumstances you encounter. Make a conscious choice to live a life that’s worth living. Moving forward, no matter how slow, is always better than standing still. So forward we will move, together. Julie LaMancuso is a choreographer and teacher, originally from Buffalo, NY.
