Choosing My Battles

I heard a someone ask a question some time ago which literally stopped me in my tracks (well, I was driving...but you know what I mean). Ever since that pivotal moment :) I've asked myself this question time after time....I know you are ready for me to post it so here it is:

Do You Really Want To Die On This Hill?
There it was in one simple question...the question I'd been trying to all I had to do was answer it. My life has been completely different since finding this question. As a mom, wife ________ (insert titles here) we are faced with situations literally every moment of our day. For me, situations become overwhelming at times, trying to decide the correct answer, the correct solution, trying to be the picture perfect woman I think I should be. My solution lies in this question...Do I really Want To Die On This Hill?
It's either Yes or No...there is no well "maybe I'll just fight really hard then give up" or "I'll just stand here and get smashed over my head a few times to see if I can win"...its' either Yes, I want to Die here..meaning I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt I'm standing for what's right or doing the right thing...OR No, it's simply not worth's not worth my sanity, it's not worth my time, it's not worth my children, in the end it doesn't really matter.
As I'm writing this I can already hear those of you that are screaming at me thinking "What a quitter..she just wants an excuse to not fight"...
Don't misunderstand me... I am a Fighter, and when my battle comes I'll choose it wisely.
If I decide to fight'll be to win NOT to get beat up and give in.
There are some things we have to "let go" Life is too precious to be fighting all of the time...
Choose your Battles want to be strong for the important ones
